Howard Stern Mini Bio.
Howard Allan Stern (born January 12, 1954) is an American radio and media personality most notable for his radio show which since January 9, 2006, has been broadcasting on Sirius XM, an uncensored satellite radio service. Although described by the media as a “shock jock” for his sometimes controversial commentary and segments, Stern argues it never was his intention to “shock” people, whether discussing world affairs or the staff he works with. Stern is the highest-paid radio personality in the United States, and also the most fined, following a long history with the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) since 1987.
Stern began his career in the radio industry in February 1975 at his campus station at Boston University, presenting a one-hour comedy program with college friends. Developing his on-air style for four years at Briarcliff Manor, Hartford and Detroit from 1977–1980, Stern paired up with his on-air news anchor Robin Quivers at Washington, D.C. in 1981. By August 1982, after having the top morning show in Washington, Stern arrived at New York City, the country’s largest radio market. Despite numerous disputes with management, Stern would have the top afternoon show by mid-1985. After being fired that September he returned to New York airwaves after a two-month absence, broadcasting for over twenty years until leaving for satellite in December 2005, free from content restrictions imposed by the FCC.
Stern describes himself as “The King of All Media” for his successes not only in radio but in print, film and television. His two books, Private Parts (1993) and Miss America (1995), received great media attention and sales, topping The New York Times Best Seller list within weeks of their release. The former was later adapted into a 1997 film of the same name directed by Betty Thomas, which grossed over $40 million in the United States alone. Stern’s television endeavours include various late night shows and successful pay-per-view specials, with New Year’s Rotten Eve 1994 becoming the highest grossing non-sports pay-per-view ever.
