BIOGRAPHY:

Howard Allan Stern was born on Jan. 12, 1954, in Jackson Heights, New York. His first radio experience was at Boston University, where he volunteered at the college radio station. Along with several other students, he created an on-air show called the King Schmaltz Bagel Hour, a takeoff on the popular King Biscuit Flour Hour. Predicting his penchant for controversy, the show was canceled after its first broadcast, which included the comedy sketch "Name That Sin," a game show where contestants confessed their worst sins. Stern graduated in 1976 with a 3.8 grade-point average and a bachelor's degree in communications. During his first paying radio gig, at an understaffed 3,000-watt station in Briarcliff Manor, New York, "It dawned on me that I would never make it as a straight deejay," Stern told James S. Kunen in an interview for People (10/22/84), "so I started to mess around. It was unheard-of to mix talking on the phone with playing music. It was outrageous, It was blasphemy."


TRIVIA:
  • His paternal Grandparents, Froim and Anna (Gallar) Stern, and maternal Grandparents, Sol and Esther (Reich) Schiffman, emigrated to America from Austria-Hungary.
  • He overcame an affliction with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder.
  • Adopted a bulldog, which he named Bianca Romijn-Stamos-O'Connell (b. March 17, 2002). He also has a dog named Java, that lives with his ex-wife, Alison Simon.
  • His second book "Miss America" was the fastest selling book in publishing history when it was released in 1995.
  • Was reportedly considered to play the role of a radio talk show host, Barry Simms in _Halloween: The Curse of Michael Myers (1995)_ (qv) but according to him he was never actually offered the role.
  • _New Year's Rotten Eve (1994) (V)_ (qv) was the highest-grossing pay-per-view variety special of all time, grossing over $30 million.
  • Became engaged to 'Beth Ostrosky' (qv) [February 13, 2007].
  • In 2007, Forbes Magazine estimated his 2006 earnings at $70 million.
