After reminding radio listeners that he slammed the late night host, Howard 'fessed up: "I got a threatening kind of comment from one of the [NBC] executives." Despite the comment, it sounds like it was business as usual for Howard, who continued to show who reigns supreme on his show.
Basically it sounds like the comment had a counter effect -- it apparently made Howard want to rant about Jay even more!

He added, “I was laughing my a-- off. I said, ‘Do not tell me to not talk about Jay Leno. I will f--king talk about Jay Leno for four hours if you tell me not to. I was done with Jay, now I’m all fired up again. F--k Jay!”
The America's Got Talent judge added, “Take my job away from me. Who cares?”
Think he's kidding? Howard wants everyone to know who calls the shots — and, apparentl,y it's not anyone in an office. “Don’t f**kin’ threaten me. I don’t answer to anybody.”
