(Newser) – Howard Stern is indeed in talks with Fox over a slot on American Idol, the shock jock confirmed today on his Sirius satellite show. “There’s not a better job on the planet than judging that fucking karaoke contest,” said Stern, 56, whose 5-year, $500 million deal with Sirius is up at year’s end.

“It might be possible, we’ll see,” he added. “They’d have to pay me a ton of dough because I already make a ton of dough.”

It's contract time at Sirius. There's been no "content" here since the first F bomb when he arrived.
