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.

Howard is a jealous snake so don't bet on any support. Just look at all the phony superficial creepy friends that he spends all his time with out at the oh so phony Hamptons.
Howard is full of it.

Howard is a selfish prick who only cares about himself. He will be enraged that Artie is going to be on the radio and will most likely end up talking trash about him as he does anyone else that dare enter his world of radio.

"He's [Howard] been supportive of everything that's happened..."

Yes, he was so supportive of that stuttering fool when he went to work for Leno. I'm wondering if he's still ranting about that today, because I stopped listening to him in the 90's. Howard takes anyone leaving his sinking ship as a betrayal and will shoot you in the back as you dive overboard.

Yeah, Howard will probably send him a box of sharpened kitchen knives and a note that reads; You might be needing these. Good Luck Artie.

Love Artie and I'll be listening. Good Luck! Howard and/or Sirius were too afraid to bring him back so their loss. Hope they have a cohost who knows sports better than Nick. Artie plus a real sports guy would work, but two comedians who don't know sports will be frustrating.
