Simmons & Stern


The title of this posting sounds like one of those annoying radio ads for 1-800-Mattres (“leave off the last S for savings”). It may be radio, but the folks at Sirius are hoping its newest “celebrity” will get listeners out of bed. Yesterday they announced that B-lister fitness nut Richard Simmons will join wacko radio jock Howard Stern on the burgeoning company’s satellite dial. Maybe I’m missing something, but does Richard Simmons enjoy the same press-worthy notoriety as his fellow Sirius broadcasters Martha and Howard?
