Info

The Howard Stern Show is an American radio show hosted by its namesake Howard Stern. It gained wide recognition in the 1990s when it was nationally syndicated on terrestrial radio from 1986 to 2005. The show has been exclusive to Sirius XM Radio, a subscription-based satellite radio service, since 2006. Other predominant staff members include co-host and news anchor Robin Quivers, writer Fred Norris, and producer Gary Dell’Abate.

The show developed in 1979 when Stern landed his first morning shift at WCCC in Hartford, Connecticut, four years into his professional career. He continued to break out as a morning personality at WWWW in Detroit, Michigan in 1980 and was paired with Quivers in 1981 at WWDC in Washington, D.C.. In 1982, Stern’s success in Washington led to a spot at WNBC in New York City, where he hosted the city’s top afternoon show until his firing in 1985. The show returned to the airwaves soon after on WXRK, where it became one of the most popular radio shows. Following the announcement of Stern’s move to Sirius, the show left terrestrial radio in December 2005.

The Howard Stern Show aired in a total of 60 markets across the United States and Canada to an audience of 20 million listeners at its peak. In the New York market, the show was the highest-rated morning program consecutively between 1994 and 2001. A total of $2.5 million in fines were issued to station licensees that carried the show by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), for what it considered indecent material. Since 1994, the show has been filmed for television broadcast. A program of highlights aired on the E! network from 1994 to 2005 and on Howard TV, a subscription on-demand service on digital cable, since 2006.
