Stern, CBS settle suit

Terms of agreement not announced

NEW YORK — Lawyers on both sides of the CBS Corp. and Howard Stern breach of contract lawsuit said Wednesday they have settled.

No terms were announced.

CBS sued Stern in February, claiming that its former star radio shock jock breached his contract with the broadcast giant when he moved to Sirius Satellite Radio.

The lawsuit, which also named Sirius, said Stern improperly used CBS Radio’s air time to promote his new satellite show, which began in January. CBS also said Stern made plans with Sirius without disclosing them to CBS as his contract required.
