Howard Stern was a personality that radio would not soon forget. But in 1982, listeners in the New York City area could only imagine what the hype was about.
And then August 30 happened.
Thirty years ago, Stern arrived in New York at WNBC Radio, complete with sidekick Robin Quivers, who first worked with Stern in Washington a year earlier. Of course, with his roots in rough and tumble Roosevelt, Long Island, this was Howard’s homecoming.
Howard Stern isnt the only person that hates Jay Leno in Hollywood. In an interview that was done in New York this week, the “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” host said “fuck him” when asked for his thoughts on Leno. He also recalled the last time he spoke to Leno which was when he went on his primetime show back in 2010 and proceeding to bash and mock him on the air for taking “The Tonight Show” back after NBC became unhappy with the Conan O’Brien’s performance as host in terms of ratings:
“It was probably my proudest moment … People, it turns out, really don’t like Jay Leno. We have not spoken since that time.” – Kimmel
Eric the Actor of Howard Stern fame is scheduled to join TNA as a regular pay-per-view analyst on their TNA Today web series. Mike Tenay and Jeremy Borash made the announcement last night with Eric the Midget in Las Vegas at the Ronnie Mund Block Party.
So did Eric make it to the Bunny Ranch while in Las Vegas? “I didn’t have time to go to any ranches, and Dennis Hof’s Bunny Ranch near Reno not Las Vegas.” – ETM
Ever since Sharon’s been saying she wants to leave AGT,” said Stern. “I get calls from people saying they want to be the new female judge on AGT, and I explain to them that I don’t have anything to do with it other than I’m just a hired hand. It’s strictly a job.”
“They want you to put in a good word for them—drop their name,” said co-host Robin Quivers. “But you’d better be dropping mine!”
Stern said he’s already submitted Quivers’ name for the job:
“I told people that you would be a good judge over there. I don’t know what they do about it, but I’ve put your name in.”
George Takei gets interviewed by Stern Show listener Allison Hope Weiner on his Howard Stern show role, decision to come out of the closet publicly, Artie Lange and dealing directly with homophobia.

“I recently stopped eating turkey and chicken and all birds and now I know why. They seem to have some sort of intelligence and I don’t want to wreck their lives, so I’m not eating them anymore. I’m not like a bird vampire.”
