Howard Stern was believed to be making $ 80 million a year under his latest contract with SiriusXM, which expires next month.

We’ve found one thing Howard Stern doesn’t like to talk about – the status of his contract negotiations with SiriusXM.

The legendary radio host turned uncharacteristically coy when asked if he had decided to re-sign with the satellite station.

“We’re talking to people about the future,” Stern told Confidenti@l at the 2015 Get Your Escape On gala at the Pierre Hotel.

“I’m interested in continuing working, but we’ll see where it lands.

“You don’t know till the contract’s signed,” Stern added.

“I can just say I’m interested in continuing on the radio. Where I end up, I don’t know yet.”

Stern was believed to be making $ 80 million a year under his latest contract, which expires next month.

The 61-year-old Stern said he never imagined a career in radio could make him fabulously rich.

“I never ever thought radio was a money career,” Stern said.

Stern says Donald Trump is a “great guest.”

“I never thought I was good on the radio. I worked at it and hoped I would get good enough that audiences would appreciate what I was doing. It was never like waking up in the morning and going, ‘Yeah radio! That’s where you can make a lot of money.’ It’s a very tough profession.”

Stern praised Donald Trump as one of his favorite guests.

“He was always great because he came from an honest place,” Stern said. “I know him as a great guest and I had him on years before everyone was having him on. Now it’s a different kind of game.”

Stern laughed when we asked what he would do if a President Trump offered him a job as UK ambassador.

“I don’t think anyone would take me seriously in that role nor am I looking for that,” Stern said.

“I’m a radio guy through and through, that’s what I do. The one thing I do well in life is entertain people in their car and try to make them laugh and try to make them think. That’s my real calling.

“If he needs an ambassador of radio,” Stern added, “I’ll be there.”

Are you listening, Donald?
