Artie Lange

I'm Hoping for

Howard Stern's Support

7/14/2011 6:16 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Artie Lange is FIRED UP about the possibility of returning to a full-time radio gig -- and tells TMZ he's very confident his old boss Howard Stern will have his back. 071411_artie_lange_v3_still



Lange was outside Dan Tana's in Hollywood with his friend and potential new radio partner Nick DiPaolo last night -- when we asked how Howard would feel about his on-air comeback.

"Howard's the greatest guy in the world" ... Artie said ... adding, "He's been supportive of everything that's happened and he's been a good man to me ... so hopefully he'll be supportive of this ... but you never know."

As TMZ first reported, the people behind Artie's project are hoping to lock a deal that would nationally simulcast the new show on DirecTV and Fox Sports Radio.

So far, we're told ... no official deal has been reached.

YAY, ARTIE!! He looks great. I really hope he stays clean. I think he is funnier when he is sober. He just seemed angry when he is using. Stay healthy and go back to Howard!! :)

Howard Stern 1995? What's wrong with you! Do you not read the news? You relize how many listeners he has! How huge he is all over the US, and how he single handedly made satallite radio what it is today? You obviously don't know what tha F you're talking about.

Howard & cohorts are the lowest TRASH on radio, period.
Inbecilic "humor" that I could not listen to, once I "got" what they were about - thanks, Howard, for contributing so WELL to the Great Dumbing Down of America!!

MariJoy, people like you never gave him the chance, and will never know what a genius he really is. You saw a show on E years ago, and think that's all the show is. If you gave him an honest chance, you'd think otherwise, I guarantee it. I've seen some many people like you turn around and love the guys show once they gave him a chance.

Artie's right on all counts:

Howard's a good dude.

Howard will have his back.

Howard will help Artie in any way Howard can.
