New York City shock jock Howard Stern was suspended from the airwaves for a day yesterday (08NOV05) because he refused to stop advertising his new satellite

show before leaving his current job.

Stern is quitting the Infinity radio network for a new position with Sirius at the beginning of 2006, and he's hoping to take fans with him.

But Infinity bosses were far from happy when he used his daily show to hawk his new programme.

Rocker David Lee Roth will replace Stern in most US territories when he departs.
