Overview

The Howard Stern Show is a free-form comedy show consisting of banter between the cast, various games (often with sexual themes) involving the cast or listeners, taped bits such as prank phone calls, and celebrity interviews. Common themes include current events, Hollywood gossip, politics, and ridiculing staff members for their mistakes and incompetence. Traditionally, producer Gary Dell'Abate (also known as "Baba Booey") and Scott the Engineer take the brunt of Stern's anger most often, but no person or topic is considered sacred and every cast member, including Robin Quivers and Stern himself, has taken ridicule on the show. A prank call, also known as a crank call, hoax call, phone scam or phony phone call, is a form of practical joke committed over the telephone. ... For other uses, see Celebrity (disambiguation). ...

Terrestrial radio history

1970s and 1980s

The earliest recognizable incarnation of the Howard Stern Show started in 1979 at WCCC in Hartford, Connecticut. Stern decided to apply for the job after reading a WCCC ad in Radio & Records looking for a "wild, fun, morning guy". Stern was hired for $12,000 a year. It was at WCCC that Stern met Fred Norris. Norris was working evenings under the pseudonym "Earth Dog". The Rock 106. ... Hartford redirects here. ... This article does not cite any references or sources. ...


In 1980, when his ratings had increased but his pay remained the same, Stern found an advertisement in Radio & Records, for an opening at WWWW in Detroit, Michigan. (Howard replaced the controversial Steve Dahl who left for Chicago's WDAI.) He met with management and signed a contract for $30,000 and moved his family to Detroit. At WWWW (W4), the show was further refined with bits such as Dial-a-Date being invented. The show started to get noticed by the industry, and Stern won the Billboard award for best AOR disc jockey. But then W4 suddenly changed formats, from rock to country. Fortunately for Stern, his success in Detroit led to a job offer at WWDC-FM DC-101 in Washington, D.C.

In one typical example of the radio show, Stern persuaded a female caller to have phone sex with him on the air.[2] He made deep buzzing noises into his microphone, and had her sit on a speaker with the volume turned up (this incident appeared as a scene in Stern's 1997 movie Private Parts). On June 29, Stern was fired from DC-101 radio after being suspended for criticizing his station management and two other radio stations. Stern's lawyer alleged: Phone sex refers to sexually explicit conversation between two or more persons via telephone, especially when at least one of the participants masturbates or engages in sexual fantasy. ...

It's our view that the real reason they've [fired Stern] is they would like to get new DC-101 deejays 'GreaseMan' and 'Adam Smasher' on the air as soon as possible, and hope the audience forgets about Howard, and that's a perfectly rational business judgment.[citation needed]

Another notable episode was on WWDC-FM (DC101 Radio) in Washington D.C. in which Stern did a bit where he made an (obviously fake) phone call to Air Florida and asked if the 14th Street Bridge (on the Potomac River less than 1 mile from the airport) would be a "permanent stop". He was making light of the crash of Air Florida Flight 90 one day earlier, on January 13, 1982, which had killed 78 persons (both onboard the plane and on the ground) Doug The Greaseman Tracht (born August 1, 1950 in Bronx, New York) is a radio personality who was probably most famous during his time with WWDC-FM in Washington, D.C., when he took over the morning drive time slot from Howard Stern. ...

In 1982, the Stern Show made it to New York City to work at NBC's flagship AM radio station, WNBC (66 WNBC). Also working at NBC at that time was David Letterman, who became a fan of Stern's radio show. Stern's guest appearance on Late Night with David Letterman on June 19, 1984, launched Stern into the national spotlight and gave his radio show unprecedented exposure. Stern would appear on Letterman's show many times thereafter. New York, New York and NYC redirect here. ... This article is about the television network. ...

Stern and his crew were fired from NBC in 1985, ostensibly in response to a particularly outrageous sketch — "Bestiality Dial-A-Date" — although relations between station management and Stern had been strained from the beginning (as well-documented in his book Private Parts). He quickly returned to FM radio by joining local rival station WXRK, premiering November 18, 1985, moving permanently to the morning drive time slot in February 1986. By year's end, 1986, Stern's show was syndicated in Philadelphia via WYSP, which he announced on Late Night with David Letterman. The local media initially doubted that Stern would be a success in the Philadelphia market;[3] however, in a move that would repeat itself many times over in his career, Stern was successful in knocking off the local morning talent (John Debella) to become number one in the ratings.[4] Before long, it was also heard in Washington, D.C., and was then syndicated nationwide by Infinity Broadcasting. The program made great sport out of feuding with other cities' top-rated deejays, and soon Stern's broadcast was number one in several major markets, including Philadelphia and Los Angeles. His Arbitron numbers were strongest in the country's number one radio market, New York City, where his morning ratings more than tripled his station's average numbers the rest of the day.

Early in his career, the show was already becoming lucrative for advertisers, due to Stern's promotional ability. Defying critics like Don Imus, who in 1986 responded to Stern's success with, "Talk to me six months from now... Prestige accounts are not going to advertise on that kind of program no matter what Howard does. You can get local retailers on who don't care what he says about them and there are only so many of them out there."[5] John Donald Don Imus, Jr. ...


The Strippers/Pornstars infusion: In the Spring of 1989, Stern (by then at WXRK) received a letter from a striptease dancer named Lisa of Centerfold Stars Talent Agency in NYC (now known as: ModelsToGo), stating she was a fan and would love to meet him. He invited her on as a guest and at the end of the segment asked if there was anything else on her mind before they said goodbye; she replied "I'd love you to spank me!" ... Howard obliged, bared her buttocks and spanked her live (audibly) on the air. This not only inaugurated "butt bongo" a novelty feature for many future bits, but began a parade of strippers' appearances from Lisa's agency, that included well-known centerfold models and video porn stars. Over several years the agency had its talent appear on dozens of radio and TV shows with Stern & company, including WWOR-TV shows in New York and a famed E-channel episode about naked maid service. The friendly association between this talent agency and the Stern show helped make strippers and porn stars turn into a weekly staple of the show's ingredients.


1990s

In 1991, The Howard Stern Show began to broadcast in Los Angeles, a move that was considered risky at the time, on the station KLSX 97.1. Predictions about the success of his show like the one of a local L.A. radio listener, "Vulgarity has reached a new low. I think he's going to bomb beautifully out here. At least I hope he does. I'm sure he'll find the Los Angeles market is more sophisticated", proved in the end to be untrue.[6] Flag Seal Nickname: City of Angels Location Location within Los Angeles County in the state of California Coordinates , Government State County California Los Angeles County Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa (D) Geographical characteristics Area     City 1,290. ...

In 1992, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) fined Infinity Broadcasting $600,000 after Stern discussed masturbating to a picture of Aunt Jemima. His exact statement was, "The closest I came to making love to a black woman was I, uh, masturbated to a picture of Aunt Jemima on a pancake box. I did it right on her kerchief."[7] FCC redirects here. ... Woman masturbating, 1913 drawing by Gustav Klimt. ... Aunt Jemima is a trademark for pancake flour, syrup, and other breakfast foods. ...

Selena controversy

In March 1995, one day before the funeral of slain Tejano singer Selena, Stern played the sounds of gunshots in the background over some of her music. He also made comments that were considered racist by many people, such as "Alvin and the Chipmunks have more soul," and "Spanish people have the worst taste in music... it has no depth." Stern apologized in Spanish a week later.[9][10] A Tejano (Spanish for Texan; archaic spelling texano) is a person of Hispanic descent born and living in the U.S. state of Texas. ...

A brief stint in Canada

Also in 1997, Stern's show aired for the first time in Canada, appearing on CILQ (Q107) in Toronto and CHOM-FM in Montreal.[11] CILQ-FM is a radio station, broadcasting at 107. ...

CHOM cancelled Stern's show (in 2000), after frequent listener complaints to the Canadian Broadcast Standards Council and the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission; for most of the time that the stations did air Stern's program, they were required to monitor the show for offensive content through the use of broadcast delays. CILQ in Vancouver cancelled the Stern show after John Hayes, who Stern refers to as The Incubus[12] became program director of Corus Radio. This was a personal vendetta against Stern by John Hayes, as Stern was the most highly rated radio morning show in Toronto in November 2001 when the show was pulled from the air. Howard Stern's fans in Toronto were able to hear the uncensored show on a Buffalo station until the move to Sirius Radio in 2005.

Columbine controversy

Stern's April 21, 1999 show drew angry criticism and official "censure" from the Colorado State Legislature for his comment regarding the motives of the two male students who murdered 12 classmates and one teacher in the Columbine High School massacre in Colorado: is the 111th day of the year (112th in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ...

There were some really good-looking girls running out with their hands over their heads. Did those kids try to have sex with any of the good-looking girls? They didn't even do that? At least if you're going to kill yourself and kill all the kids, why wouldn't you have some sex? If I was going to kill some people, I'd take them out with sex.[13]

Stern did not apologize for his words but instead argued that his comments were an attempt to figure out what was wrong with the two attackers. Stern believes much of the furor was roused by deejays at competing stations in the Denver market. He said: Nickname: Location of Denver in the State of Colorado Location of Colorado in the United States Coordinates: , Country United States State State of Colorado City and County Denver[1] Founded 1858-11-22, as Denver City, K.T.[2] Incorporated 1861-11-07, as Denver City, C.T.[3] Consolidated...

There has been a tragic shooting in Denver. It's a national horror and what are the deejays doing? They're announcing my sponsors trying to get them to pull out. Are they really caring about the Denver community, or are they really just saying, 'Hey, maybe we can get Howard Stern off the air?' If I'm so vicious, why would you draw attention to me?

Stern explained his remarks this way: "Maybe my intent was poorly worded, but... the point in making that comment was an attempt to try to understand a motive."[14]


2000s

Jackie leaves the show

On March 5, 2001, the Howard Stern Show officially announced that longtime show regular Jackie "The Jokeman" Martling had left the radio show after failed contract negotiations. Over the next several months, various comedians auditioned in the "Jackie Chair" for the job, with comedian Artie Lange eventually becoming a permanent member of the cast.

September 11, 2001 attacks

Stern was on the air in his New York City studio during the September 11, 2001 attacks and stayed on the air with his cast/crew while many other broadcasters fled the city.[15] Fittingly, he was in the middle of a rousing story about a rendezvous with Pamela Anderson when he first mentioned the World Trade Center was on fire. His coverage of the tragedy increased as the gravity of the situation became clear. His live reporting was one of the first news of the incident for many East Coast residents. The show had a somewhat subdued tone, with many listeners calling in to share their own stories of survival or personal loss. As other comedy performers like David Letterman and Jon Stewart later returned to the air, many with emotionally-charged monologues, Stern was furious at the glowing response they received in the press, as he had been on the air the whole time without any positive reaction. This reinforced his long-held belief that there is a bias against him in the mainstream media. Stern's September 11, 2001 broadcast was replayed in its entirety on the first and fifth anniversary of the attacks. Among Stern fans - many of whom work in the broadcasting and entertainment fields - the September 11 broadcast was a watershed moment; as Stern remarked before the gravity of the situation was truly apparent, "I'm auditioning for Dan Rather's job".

Parting ways with Clear Channel

On February 25, 2004, Clear Channel Communications "indefinitely suspended" Stern from six markets because of indecency involving sexual and racist dialogue during his show.[16] The show in question featured Rick Salomon, whose claim to fame includes a publicly released home video showing him having sex with hotel heiress and socialite Paris Hilton. During this broadcast, Stern held a sexually-provocative and racially insensitive interview with Salomon, asking him graphic questions about anal sex and making light of a caller's use of the word "nigger". Clear Channel president John Hogan said, "Clear Channel drew a line in the sand today with regard to protecting our listeners from indecent content, and Howard Stern's show blew right through it... it was vulgar, offensive and insulting, not just to women and African-Americans but to anyone with a sense of common decency." The move came only a day after Clear Channel fired Bubba the Love Sponge for similar reasons. Due to the timing of the incident, this is considered to be part of a wide-ranging backlash against obscenity triggered by the Super Bowl XXXVIII halftime show controversy. is the 56th day of the year in the Gregorian calendar. ...

On April 8, 2004, Clear Channel Communications announced it would "permanently terminate" its relationship with the shock jock after being fined $500,000 by the FCC.[17][18] However, on July 19, Stern returned to four of the six markets Clear Channel had booted him from, and added five new ones to the roster, this time on Infinity-owned stations.[19] In late August, he returned to a fifth market, Miami, on an independent station. Here, as was often typical with Stern, his return was greeted with controversy as the Miami Dolphins threatened to revoke their broadcast deal with the station in question if the station did not fire him. is the 98th day of the year (99th in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ...

Political tones

Because Clear Channel and some of its executives have donated over $200,000 to the Republican Party, Stern claims the company was trying to penalize him for his harsh criticisms of President George W. Bush. Stern told his listeners: Federal courts Supreme Court Circuit Courts of Appeal District Courts Elections Presidential elections Midterm elections Political Parties Democratic Republican Third parties State & Local government Governors Legislatures (List) State Courts Local Government Other countries Atlas  US Government Portal      For other uses, see President of the United States (disambiguation). ... George Walker Bush (born July 6, 1946) is the forty-third and current President of the United States of America, originally inaugurated on January 20, 2001. ...

There are a lot of people saying that the second that I started saying, 'I think we gotta get Bush out of the presidency,' that's when Clear Channel banged my ass outta here. Then I find out that Clear Channel is such a big contributor to President Bush, and in bed with the whole Bush administration, I'm going, 'Maybe that's why I was thrown off: because I don't like the way the country is leaning too much to the religious right.' And then, bam! Let's get rid of Stern. I used to think, 'Oh, I can't believe that.' But that's it! That's what's going on here! I know it! I know it![20]

Stern turned against Bush because neither Clear Channel nor Bush "got the FCC off my back." Stern perceived Bush's religious beliefs as fanatical and has described George W. Bush as a "Jesus freak," a "maniac" and "an arrogant bastard".[21] This article does not cite any references or sources. ...


Stern endorsed John Kerry in the 2004 U.S. presidential campaign, and urged his listeners to vote for him, the latest in a long string of political endorsements Stern has made.[22] In the past, he had also supported former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani. In one on-air stunt, Stern promised then-gubernatorial candidate Christine Todd Whitman of New Jersey that he would endorse her candidacy if she promised to name a rest stop on the New Jersey Turnpike after him if she were elected. She won and kept her promise, although one of her successors, Democrat Jim McGreevey, later claimed impropriety by Whitman and revoked the honor. In recent years, Stern has been a staunch opponent of Connecticut Senator Joe Lieberman. On July 25, 2006 Stern launched into a tirade against the Senator. He attacked Lieberman's past support of indecency laws and his current support of the War on Terror[23]. In February of 2007, Stern announced on his radio show that he is currently supporting Hillary Clinton for the 2008 U.S. presidential election. On January 7, 2008 Howard Stern said, "I gotta tell you about this guy Ron Paul. He's fantastic."[citation needed] Stern supported Paul's foreign policy position of removing U.S. troops from Iraq and removing American troops from bases around the world.

Stuttering John leaves the show

On February 27, 2004, long-time Stern show regular John Melendez left the show to become the on-air announcer for The Tonight Show. Stern has consistently claimed the hiring of John was an attempt by Jay Leno to steal ideas from Howard's show, citing John's speech impediment, heavy east cost accent, and limited show business resume as questionable qualifications for the job of Tonight Show announcer. Prior to this, many late-night talk show bits had been stolen from the Stern show, such as Leno's "Jaywalking" segment, which closely resembles "The Homeless Game". After John's hiring, additional bits were borrowed such as goofy red carpet interviews (with Ross the Intern) and booking Stern Show regular Kenneth Keith Kallenbach as a guest (albiet Leno intentionally mispronounced his name [24]).

Infinity contract ends

On April 6, 2005, Stern pleaded on-air for Infinity Broadcasting to let him out of his contract, citing the reason of possible prosecution, per House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jim Sensenbrenner's recommendation.

It must also be added that within Stern's contract with Viacom/Infinity, if he were to have been fired or his show canceled, his employer would have had to pay him and his production company 20 million dollars. Viacom (NYSE: VIA) (NYSE: VIAb) is an American media conglomerate with various worldwide interests in cable and satellite television networks (MTV Networks and BET), and movie production and distribution (the Paramount Pictures and DreamWorks movie studios). ...


Artie’s drug abuse

In early June 2005, Lange began missing work at the Howard Stern Show, prompting concerns of a possible relapse into the substance abuse which had affected him in previous years. The situation climaxed in Lange behaving incoherently and belligerently while on the air. He infamously sneered at Stern and the crew that: "Artie's going to do what Artie's going to do!" Howard later commented that this statement had scared him. Lange subsequently missed the next two days of work.


At the time, Lange's absence from the show went largely unmentioned and was written off as stress from doing the radio show and beginning production of his movie Beer League. The real reason for Lange's absence was made public in a spontaneous revelation on the September 21, 2006 Howard Stern Show, on which Lange acknowledged that he was regularly snorting heroin from February to June 2005. Lange discussed prior episodes of heroin use, beginning when he was a stand-up comedian and continuing until Beer League was set to begin shooting. Lange detailed his painful withdrawal, which included common side effects such as cold sweats, shaking, and vomiting. Lange recalled disconnecting the telephone to avoid speaking with his mother, who ultimately intervened and helped Artie recover. Lange was threatened with legal action by the Beer League producers (whom he later described as having "waste management connections") if he failed to show up for the first day of shooting in June 2005, which led Lange to secure a home visit from a doctor who prescribed Lange with buprenorphine (Subutex) to alleviate his heroin dependency. Since starting the medicine, Artie claimed to be free of any illegal substances, but on May 24, 2007 he stated that he has abused Subutex. He stated that taking more than his recommended dose gave him a small high.

The move to Sirius Satellite Radio

On October 6, 2004, Stern announced on his show that he had signed a five year, $500 million deal with the satellite radio service Sirius.[26] The deal also contained an additional $225 million one-time stock bonus which he would receive if the show attracted a certain amount of listeners in a given time, which it did. is the 279th day of the year (280th in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ...

The move to satellite radio met with controversy, as Stern talked about his move to Sirius on his terrestrial show, including telling listeners how to purchase Sirius equipment and subscriptions.[28] To promote his move, Stern held a rally in New York City where he gave out coupons for free or discounted Sirius equipment. Stern's touting of his move to Sirius resulted in some radio stations censoring him every time he mentioned the words "Sirius" or "satellite radio". In one incident, Farid Suleman of Citadel Broadcasting billed Stern $200,000 for the plugs he gave Sirius on his show. Stern's responded publicly on his show "Keep sending me bills. Like I'm going to pay 'em".

The December 12, 2005 issue of New York Magazine revealed that XM Satellite Radio had been prepared to offer Howard a $30 million per-year contract in 2004, but its executives were slow to close the deal, giving Sirius the chance it needed. When asked why he picked Sirius over their competitor XM, Howard replied that he "always liked the underdog. Every radio station I ever went to was a toilet bowl."[30] He has also stated that during very preliminary negotiations with XM, he found the management to be slow and unresponsive while Sirius was "nimble".

In addition, Sirius gave Stern two channels, "Howard 100" and "Howard 101". Both of these channels launched in October 2005. Although Stern himself was not able to broadcast on Sirius until his Infinity contract expired, he had been producing content to fill the otherwise dead air. Shows included a live 24-hour broadcast of Wack Pack member "Wendy the Retard", a 24-hour broadcast of Wack Packer "High Pitch Eric" featuring the weighing of his excrement, and auditions of other Wack Packers for their own permanent shows. A news team of award-winning journalists was put together to launch "Howard 100 News," a nightly broadcast of "all things Howard." Stern also announced fellow shock jock Bubba the Love Sponge would have his own nightly talk show starting in January 2006 on one of his channels. Since the move to Sirius, Stern has created "The Friday Show", which is an extended version of "The Wrap-up Show", which airs every day after his Morning Radio Show. "The Friday Show", hosted by Jon Hein, Gary Dell'Abate and Ralph Cirella, aired live on those Fridays when Howard's show was not on the air, although it has since been replaced by "Master Tape Theatre", replays of selected pre-Sirius Stern Shows.

Due to his former contract with Infinity Broadcasting, now CBS Radio, neither Stern nor anyone under contract from his show could be heard on Sirius before January 1, 2006. Stern called in to a New Year's Eve broadcast on Howard 100 a few minutes past midnight on January 1, and spoke to hosts from Howard 100 News for over an hour. On January 1, 2006, Stern did a commercial-free segment on his two stations Howard 100 and Howard 101, playing clips from his days as a child, to working at WTBU (Boston University college radio), WCCC, W4, WWDC, WNBC, and WXRK.

Various callers congratulated Stern on his new venture, although he reiterated that the broadcast was nothing more than a test designed to give users a sneak peek, and not an actual show.

Goodbye to terrestrial radio

Howard's last show on conventional AM/FM terrestrial radio was on December 16, 2005.[31] The studio segment of the show ended when the Stern staff each gave a final farewell, then walked to a stage on the streets of New York City below K-Rock, simulcast live accompanied by video on the Internet through Yahoo!. Several thousand fans attended the event. Stern was the last to leave the studio. On the stage, many members of the show's "Wack Pack" gave speeches and Staind performed. Speeches were given by each member of the show: Gary, Artie, Fred, Robin, and finally Howard, who frequently referred to himself and his fans as "the last of a dying breed." During his speech, Stern thanked the New York City Police Department and dedicated the show to Sergeant Keith Manning, a friend of the show who at the time was serving in Iraq. Stern was then bussed to the Hard Rock Cafe in Times Square, where Martha Stewart (who also has her own Sirius talk channel) was on hand to induct Howard Stern into the Sirius family. Much of the show took place at the Hard Rock Cafe in New York City where Sheryl Crow performed and mentioned on stage the debt America and musicians should pay towards Stern. is the 350th day of the year (351st in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ...

True to the last broadcast, many of Stern's final statements were edited out on the radio and even on the Yahoo! Internet broadcast. These statements largely pertained to Stern's animosity towards Clear Channel and the future at Sirius. As a response to Stern leaving FM radio, many of the radio stations under ownership of CBS Radio, including K-Rock in New York, changed their format from music to a hot talk format. Select stations were rebranded "Free FM." Stern's flagship station changed its name from 92.3 K-Rock to 92.3 Free FM. Stern himself was a harsh critic of the "Free FM" format in his last days on terrestrial radio, arguing that the name was a joke due to continued FCC and industry censorship.

Eight months following the changeover to satellite radio, Ad Age reported that advertising revenue from Stern's show is a third of what his terrestrial radio show commanded for a live read spot.[33] Analysts partially attributed this to the lack of measurable listener data Sirius makes available for its individual channels, but also due to the smaller satellite audience when compared with Stern's previous terrestrial broadcasts. What Advertising Age failed to mention was that Sirius Satellite Radio is a pay radio service, similar to HBO or Showtime, and as such, airs approximately 8 minutes of commercials per hour (0 minutes per hour for music channels), compared to Stern's show on FM radio, which aired approximately 22 minutes of commercials per hour.

Sirius Canada

Initially, Sirius Canada chose not to carry Stern because of the possibility of a future issue with the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission. Josef Radomski, a Canadian writer, announced on the January 11, 2006 show that he has started an online petition to bring Stern to Sirius Canada. On February 1, 2006, Sirius Canada announced that they would start airing Howard 100 starting February 6.[35] On Stern's first day on Sirius Canada a caller claiming to be Stephen Harper, the Prime Minister-designate who was sworn in as Prime Minister that same day, welcomed Stern back to the Canadian airwaves.

The first show

The "Howard 100 Heartbeat" broke away to "Also Sprach Zarathustra" tunefully performed with flatulence. Howard's theme music, "Great American Nightmare," played a few bars before George Takei introduced himself as the show's new announcer. Callers were soon invited to call into the show using their new toll-free line, 1-888-9-ASSHOLE.

During the show, Stern revealed that there were 180,000 Sirius receivers activated the day before his inaugural broadcast. He also revealed that he was not married, squashing rumors which appeared (and he happily fed) during his hiatus.

Artie Lange walks off the show

On Thursday, April 10, 2008, Artie Lange attempted to physically attack his personal assistant, Teddy, while on the air. An off-air argument between the comedian and his assistant escalated on-air as Stern asked Lange to explain the situation. The altercation quickly turned to recriminations regarding money that Lange had loaned to Teddy (though Lange referred to the repeated requests for financial assistance as theft), and soon several show staff members had to restrain Lange, who lunged at his assistant.

Controversy and criticism

Stern is a polarizing figure in the entertainment industry. While beloved amongst his fans, he is loathed by his critics.[39][40] In 2005 aides to former FCC Commissioner Michael Powell admitted that Stern is a lightning rod (for FCC action), while entertainers like Oprah who also discuss issues like sexuality are "untouchable".[41] Michael Powell Michael Kevin Powell (born March 23, 1963) is an American Republican politician. ... The Oprah Winfrey Show is the longest-running daytime television talk show in the United States, and is hosted, produced and owned by Oprah Winfrey. ...


Government

The FCC has fined stations for content on The Howard Stern Show upwards of $5 million since 1990.[42]


FCC fines

Over Stern's career, the Stern Show has drawn FCC complaints for indecency. These complaints are paid by the broadcast station against which the complaints were filed, not by Stern or the Stern Show. The first complaint was filed in 1986 when Stern asked a caller "Have you ever had sex with an animal?", to which the caller answered no. Stern continued, "Well, don't knock it. I was sodomized by Lamb Chop--you know, that puppet Shari Lewis holds?".[43] He was not fined for this complaint, but after his first fines in 1988 they continued until he left terrestrial radio.

Selective prosecution

Stern feels that he has been selectively targeted by the FCC. Though this defense has never been used against the agency, some legal scholars believe that Stern's case passes the selective prosecution test and that the FCC's regulation of indecency is not proper.[46] However, in a 2004 interview the FCC commissioner Jonathan Adelstein stated that the FCC was not out to drive Stern off the air and was just enforcing the law. "I don't think it's a necessary outcome that good content is driven away from the radio," Adelstein told Billboard Radio Monitor.[42] In jurisprudence, selective prosecution is a procedural defense via which a defendant may argue that they should not be held criminally liable for breaking the law, as the criminal justice system discriminated against them by choosing to prosecute. ... Jonathan Steven Adelstein is currently one of the United States FCC Commissioners. ...

Needing an enemy

One criticism of the show is that Howard is only funny when he has an enemy to rail against. After his move to Sirius in 2006, Rolling Stone's Rob Sheffield wrote, "No wonder he's bored - he's got nobody to piss him off anymore".[48] Stern has responded to these criticisms by making analogies like, "That's like saying Chris Rock's HBO special would have been better if he had a censor to fight."[49] Rob Sheffield Rob Sheffield is a contributing editor at Rolling Stone magazine. ...

Howard Stern: Biography and Much More From Answers.com (2724 words)
Stern said his mother ran her house with "the intensity of Hitler" and that his father often called him a moron.
A hallmark of Stern's humor was that he often expressed how tempted he was by the strippers, porn stars, and lesbians who appeared on his show, but always insisted that he had to be faithful to his wife.
Stern himself even brought up the fact that the network had the option to "push the button" on his program, taking him off the air, if they did not agree with what he was saying and putting out before the public.
