Howard Stern has an estimated net worth of $500 million

Howard Stern is an American radio and television host with an estimated net worth of $500 million. He is best known for his nationally syndicated radio program, The Howard Stern Show. He is 6’5″ and weighs 205 pounds. Howard Allan Stern was born on January 12, 1954 in Jackson Heights, New York. Stern was the younger of two children from the coupling of recording studio owner and a homemaker. He would visit his father’s studio occasionally and witnessed actors voice his favorite cartoon characters which would instill and early appreciation for radio. After high school, Stern attended Boston University in 1973 and started to work at the campus radio station spinning records, conducting interviews and reading the news. He also hosted a comedy hour with fellow students. He would graduate with a degree in communications in 1976 and picked up a first class FCC radio-telephone license while in school which cleared the way for him to get a job even before his graduation.

Stern’s first professional job came at WNTN in Newton, Massachusetts in 1975, where he was a newscaster with some production responsibilities. After his college graduation he was offered job in Westchester County, New York at a progressive rock station but initially declined, in favor of a media planning job at a New York ad agency. He soon realized his mistake and took the initial job offer, although he was initially hired just to cover shifts during Christmas. Soon, however, he was hired full time and in 1977, he worked a midday shift for less than $100 a week. He would eventually take over as program director but would leave the job in 1979 when he applied for and got a morning show host at a station in Hartford, Connecticut. He quit the job when he was denied a raise about a year later and took a job in Detroit, Michigan. After that station changed his format, Stern was again on the move and landed in Washington and would finally begin to host a show that would involve all his zany and controversial antics.

Stern made a name for himself as a shock jock in Washington and was soon hired by WNBC-Am in New York, although the station tried to tame Stern’s unpredictable show. The move backfired as Stern went to war with station executives on air and eventually he was fired, but not before he made a name for himself in the city’s airwaves. He was soon hired by K-Rock and The Howard Stern Show would go on to revolutionize radio, with its constant bombardment of sex and controversy on listeners eager to eat it up. The show replaced the previously untouchable Don Imus Show as the most popular in the market. Stern was soon syndicated all over the country and wrote a bestselling book, Private Parts, in 1993, which would go on to be made into a movie with Stern cast as himself. His fame would continue to grow and eventually he moved his show to satellite radio in 2004, where he has been ever since. In 2011 he signed on to serve as a judge on America’s Got Talent. Stern has been married twice and has three daughters from his first marriage.
