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:
  • In 2004, he did a 180-degree turn in his politics, lambasting President 'George W. Bush' (qv) for his lack of planning in the Iraq War, adding an entire page of anti-Bush website links on his personal website and making direct attacks on members of 'George W. Bush' (qv)'s cabinet. Shortly afterwords, Clear Channel Communications dropped his show from their stations in several markets after being fined by the FCC for an incident (several years earlier) that they deemed as profane. Stern took this as a personal attack and managed to negotiate his return on stations owned by Infinity Broadcasting in those same markets where he was dropped, and began campaigning heavily for Democratic Party Presidential candidate Senator 'John Kerry (III)' (qv), D-MA.
  • His views on parenthood have not soured as his views on marriage have since his divorce. While he shares custody of his three children with his ex-wife Alison, he says he would gladly take full custody of them if ever called upon to do so.
  • One of the major influences on his brand of humor was Mad magazine.
  • His 5-year, $100 million annual deal equates to about $1,923,077 a week and roughly $274,725 a day. He is the highest-paid radio personality in America.
  • Inspired the song "Vibe On", by Australian pop star 'Dannii Minogue' (qv), from her album "Neon Nights".
  • Practices transcendental meditation.
  • Testament to Stern's huge following, Private Parts was the fastest-selling book in Simon & Schuster publishing history.
  • Performed the spoken word opening to the 'Blue Öyster Cult' (qv) song "When the War Comes" on their Club Ninja album.
