Early Life

From the age of 9 until his second year of university, where he worked as a cook, camper, and counselor. On vocals and keyboards, he established a band called the Electric Comicbook with two classmates.

Stern went to Washington-Rose Elementary School, Roosevelt Junior-Senior High School, and Hebrew School, in that order. Stern’s father arranged a microphone, tape machine, and turntable in his basement for Stern.

It was to record his pretend radio broadcasts when he was five years old. Stern switched to South Side High School after his family moved to nearby Rockville Centre in 1969.

Stern turned down an offer to attend Elmira College in 1972 in order to pursue a Communications degree at Boston University. Because of his ordinary high school grades, he spent the first 2 years of his college career in the College of Basic Studies.


While attending Boston University, Stern began his radio career. From 1976 to 1982, he worked in the mornings at WRNW in Briarcliff Manor, NY, WWWW in Detroit, MI, WCCC in Hartford, CT, and WWDC in Washington, DC, refining his on-air presence.

He worked afternoons at WNBC from 1982 through 1985. He started a 20-year stint at New York City’s WXRK in 1985, and his morning show went into syndication in 1986.

Stern’s work has been published in Hamptons and WHIRL magazines, among others. He judged America’s Got Talent from 2012 to 2015. He is the only person to have the most popular morning program in both New York City and Los Angeles.

Stern has consistently won industry accolades, notably 8 years as Billboard’s Nationally Syndicated Air Personality of the Year. After signing a $500 million five-year agreement with Sirius in 2004, Stern was among the highest-paid radio people.

When the FCC fined station owners $2.5 million for indecent content, he became the most fined radio personality in history. After the Super Bowl XXXVIII halftime show scandal, Stern criticized the Bush administration for increasing FCC fines in 2004.

For his achievements outside of radio, Stern has dubbed himself the “King of All Media” since 1992. He hosted and produced a spate of late-night shows, pay-per-view events, and home movies during his career.

Private Parts (1993) and Miss America (1995) are two of his works that reached number one on the New York Times Best Seller list and marketed over a million copies.

Personal Life

Alison Berns, Stern’s first wife, was introduced to him by a mutual friend while they were both students at Boston University. In Brookline, Massachusetts, they wedded in 1978 at Temple Ohabei Shalom.

Emily Beth, Debra Jennifer, and Ashley Jade are the couple’s 3 daughters. They chose to split up in 1999. In 2001, the couple divorced amicably and settled their differences.

Later in his life, he dated Angie Everhart and Robin Givens. In 2007, he announced his engagement to Beth Ostrosky, a model and TV host, and the two married in 2008.

In Miss America, Stern disclosed that he suffers from obsessive-compulsive disorder. Stern admitted that he had done rhinoplasty and liposuction under his chin in the 1990s as part of his Staff Revelations Game on his radio show in 2006.

Stern said in 2012 that he had gone pescetarian. Howard Stern stated two years before that he had a cancer scare after a tumor on one of his kidneys was discovered.

It was later discovered to be a harmless cyst. Since 2014, Howard Stern and his companion Barbara Ostrosky have rescued around 200 animals in their Long Island home.
