Serving of the Week

Name: Sal Governale, The Howard Stern Show
SERVED: This past Thursday Howard Stern made an official announcement that he has re-upped his contract with Sirius XM for another 5 years. As a listener, I was glad to know I wouldn't have to start listening to lame morning drive-time radio. What I didn't realize is how radio gold would come from this announcement.

Stern Show staffer Sal Governale overslept on Thursday, getting into work far past the 6am call-time and when they big announcement was made. So how do you punish someone for being late? Make them cry on the radio. Howard brought Sal and the rest of the staff (who already knew the positive outcome) into the studio and announced he was leaving Sirius, sending Sal to tears. He audibly wept about feeding his kids, not saving money for the future, and needing a job. Oh it was classic and a total SERVING of epic proportions. It's 18 minutes of pure amazing and even if you're not a Stern fan, please listen. Sal is eventually let in on the prank and realizes he got SERVED on the radio. Guess he learned his lesson.


Think someone should get SERVED? Leave your ideas in the comments section, email me, or hit me up on Twitter or Facebook.
