Stern pockets all the Sirius money.
Encourages his staff to earn money on the side.
Stern pretends that he is angry as a way to promote the staffs side shit.
The fake staff drama fills time on his show for days and spills over to other shows on the channels.
I gotta go with Ronnie. He's a talentless older dude that's recently divorced. The block party makes it seem like he's got something going on in his life which keeps that younger girlfriend interested and some spending money in his pocket. His long time wife probably made out well in the divorce so he needs the extra cash.
Howard must get a taste of the $ from the block party, but Shuli and Ronnie both get attention and make money off of it even though neither has any discernible talent.
If the block party didn't exist, Howard would just fill the time with other zero cost filler and/or disguised plugs. Good to see that so far no one has voted for "the fans" as the ones who benefit the most.
