Richard Christy was announced the winner of the contest to replace Stuttering John on the Howard Stern show and will soon begin a three-month tenure as a staff member on the show. Christy left Iced Earth amidst touring a couple months ago so that he could audition for the part on the Stern show.

UPDATE: Richard Christy has issued an open letter about winning Stuttering John's job. Apparently he received 31 percent of the votes on the "Get John's Job!" voting web site, and Christy spent all of last week on the show and was considered a favorite to land the gig from the very beginning. Christy's letter reads as follows:

"Richard (Hey KC) Christy here, it definitely still hasn't sunk in that I actually won John's job! Winning today was a very surreal feeling, but then getting hammered by the other contestants quickly brought me back down to earth! Today was truly a dream come true for me and I was honored to stand next to all of the talented people who were finalists in the 'Get John's Job' contest. I would like to thank Howard and the gang for the opportunity to compete in this audition. I would like to thank my family, friends, all the Howard Stern fans, and all of my fellow 'metal heads' for voting for me! I would also like to thank my friends Tom and Omar for letting me stay with them while I've been in New York the past two weeks. I can't even begin to describe how excited I am about the opportunity to contribute to the show! I have notebooks and hard drives full of ideas that I can't wait to present to Howard! It was also hilarious seeing Chaunce in a dress, but it was disturbing when he showed everyone his 'man worm' in the greenroom. It was also great when Sal rubbed Chaunce's hat in the crack of his ass, and then Yucko dipped his hairy walnuts into it! I also loved when Jeff the Drunk called in and was pissed at me! I wasn't feeling the drunken love from him this morning and I really hope that he doesn't speak for all drunks! Well, I'm not sure what more I can say about how excited I am! I love New York and I love 'The Howard Stern Show' and I am honored that I won the greatest job that I could ever dream of having! Thank You!"

Just when Iced Earth moved beyond their plateau (which had everything to do with Ripper Owens in my opinion), Christy decided on a career change. Good luck to him, although I can't say I like Stern that much anymore since he's gone totally off the wall, blaming Bush for his fines and supporting a pacificistic, appeasing, America-hating candidate like John Kerry.

Oh man, how the hell did Christy win over Yucko the Clown? Come on, Yucko has the best interviews. The guy says the most offensive things, it's the funniest thing ever. That sucks so much!! Howard Stern sucks, and Christy sucks just as much!! Yucko is better off with the Damn show anyway....
