Robin Quivers is considering a media career without her tall sidekick of the past 30 years. The Howard Stern cohort tells Radar: “I love to do radio and television and I’ve always wanted my own television show, so I’ve been putting out feelers for those kinds of things." Quivers has been doing some TV guest-hosting gigs of late, and she sees a place for herself in the post-Oprah landscape.

"It will be like a talk show, but with subjects that I’d be interested in," she says of her possible show. "I think I have some interesting things to say and I don’t think anybody out there is saying them." Quivers, 58, recently re-upped with Stern for another five-year contract on Sirius, but MSNBC's Scoop blog notes she could have an escape clause. It seems unlikely she could keep doing Stern's Monday-through-Thursday morning show if she lands a TV deal. (More Robin Quivers stories.)
