Howard Stern on 45-minute rant about embattled CBS CEO Les Moonves

Howard Stern railed against CBS CEO Les Moonves for 45 minutes on Monday's episode of his SiriusXM radio show, saying the embattled media mogul tried to ruin his life.

Stern parted ways with CBS Radio in 2005 to join SiriusXM, and soon after an explosive legal battle began when CBS filed a $500million breach of contract lawsuit against the acclaimed radio host.

Since then, Stern has let his listeners know about his disdain for Moonves, who stands accused of sexual misconduct by six women in a recent New Yorker exposé.

'Les tried to ruin my life,' Stern said, calling Moonves 'Tony Soprano.'

'I had done a pretty good job for these guys, kept their stations afloat, quite frankly, and made them a lot of money, and it was a nice way to end,' he said of his initial parting with CBS.

'Les and Joel Hollander came in and even brought champagne which was lovely, they said we wish you luck' adding they told him 'You gave everything to this company.'
