His birth date is 12 January 1954. Howard Allan Stern is an American radio and television personality, comedian, and author. Howard Stern is most known for his syndicated radio show, The Howard Stern Show, which ran from 1986 to 2005 on terrestrial radio and gained in popularity. Sirius XM Satellite Radio’s weekly show has had him on the air since 2006.
Stern got his start in radio while still a student at Boston University. The morning shift at WRNW in Briarcliff Manor, New York; WCCC in Hartford; WWWW in Detroit; and WDC in Washington, D.C. allowed him to hone his on-air persona from 1976 through 1982. He worked at WNBC in New York City in the afternoons from 1982 until 1985.
New York City’s WXRK began a 20-year run in 1985, and his morning show moved into syndication in 1986, with a peak audience of 20 million. Among the publications to feature Stern’s work are Hamptons and WHIRL. From 2012 through 2015, he served as a judge on America’s Got Talent.
For eight years running, Stern has been named Billboard’s Nationally Syndicated Air Personality of the Year. He also holds the number one morning show in both New York City and Los Angeles, a distinction he earned by winning several industry awards. When the FCC fined station owners $2.5 million for offensive programming, he became the most severely reprimanded radio host in history. Stern became one of the highest-paid radio broadcasters after signing a $500 million, five-year contract with Sirius in 2004.
In response to Stern’s comments on Aunt Jemima, the Fcc has fined him.
In 1992, Stern said on the air, “I masturbated to a pancake carton with a picture of Aunt Jemima on it. I got the closest to making love to a Black woman.” “I got it right on her kerchief.”
As previously reported by Business Insider, Aunt Jemima has long been connected with racial stereotypes. As a result of their obscenity broadcasts, the FCC fined Stern and his firm Infinity Broadcasting $600,000.
Her music was criticised after Selena’s death by Stern
Mexican-American singer-songwriter Selena Quintanilla-Pérez was well-known in Texas. In 1995, her fan club president, Yolanda Saldivar, shot and killed her. At the time of his death, Quintanilla-Pérez had only turned 23 years old.
A fake Hispanic accent was used by Stern to mock Quintanilla-song Pérez’s fans while reporting her death live on television.
According to the New York Times, a South Texas judge issued a warrant charging Stern with disorderly conduct over his on-air comments.
Following the Columbine High School Shooting, Stern Made Offensive Statements
Howard Stern made a series of jokes and crude statements about the sexual lives of teens the day following the Columbine High School shooting.
While walking around with his hands on his hips, he spotted some “really good-looking gals.” Were those young men interested in having sex with any of the lovely women there? Is that even possible? Having a little sex is the least you can do before you murder yourself and your children. If I was going to kill someone, I’d use sex on them.
It’s alleged that KXPK’s general manager Bob Visotcky spoke with Stern for 20 minutes immediately following his arrest and that he believes that Stern’s words were taken out of context.

During an interview on “the Howard Stern Show” the Day Before Her Death, Dana Plato Was Questioned About Her Sobriety
The former child star died of a heroin overdose on May 8, 1999. She had just turned 34 years old.
The day before she died, Plato appeared on “The Howard Stern Show.” She earlier confessed to Plato’s drug use, and on the episode, she claimed to be drug-free. She had to take a drug test because of Stern’s demands.
The New York Post reports that she volunteered to send over strands of her hair for testing after her listeners accused her of being on drugs. A few hairs were plucked from her head by Stern’s producer, Gary Dell’Abate
The mother of Plato’s co-star, Todd Bridges, accused Stern for maybe pushing her over the edge. Perhaps she thought, ‘I need to calm down because people think I’m on drugs,'” she said to the Washington Post days after Plato’s death.
