NEW YORK, Dec. 16 (UPI) -- New York shock jock Howard Stern ended his career on terrestrial radio Friday with a host of clips, well-wishes and concert by Sheryl Crow.

Stern officially ended his affiliation with CBS Radio at the end of his show Friday morning and is starting a new chapter with Sirius Satellite Radio Jan. 9.

Stern conducted a rally Friday morning with thousands of fans outside the WXRK studios during which members of his cast made short speeches and Stern proclaimed "Fan Appreciation Day," FMQB.com reported.

Stern spent about 20 minutes addressing the assembly keeping up his rant of the past 14 months against corporate giant Clear Channel, the Federal Communications Commission and the "religious right," FMQB said.

Stern also urged his fans to subscribe to Sirius, saying: "Don't break up the family. It will be a great ride in the future."

Crow performed for a post-rally celebration at the nearby Hard Rock Cafe.
