Howard Stern Biography

"Howard Allan Stern" (born January 12, 1954) is an American radio and TV personality, media mogul, humorist, actor, and author. Stern hosts "The Howard Stern Show" four days a week (Monday-Thursday) on Howard 100, a Sirius Satellite Radio station.

The self-proclaimed 'King of All Media' (a humorous reference to Michael Jackson's appellation 'The King of Pop') has been dubbed a shock jock for his highly controversial use of scatological, sexual and racial humor. Stern has said that the show was never about shocking people, but primarily intended to offer his honest opinions on a gamut of issues (ranging from world affairs to problems among his own staff). Though controversial, he is the highest-paid radio personality in the United States and the most fined personality in radio broadcast history.
