Name: Howard Allan Stern                                                           
Born: 12 January 1954 New York City, New York                                       
Howard Allan Stern (born January 12, 1954) is an American radio and television     
personality, media mogul, humorist, actor, and author. Stern hosts The Howard       
Stern Show four days a week (Monday–Thursday) on Howard 100, a Sirius Satellite   
Radio station.                                                                     
The self-proclaimed "King of All Media" has been dubbed a shock jock for his       
highly controversial use of scatological, sexual, and racial humor. Stern has       
said that the show was never about shocking people, but primarily intended to       
offer his honest opinions on a gamut of issues (ranging from world affairs to       
problems among his own staff). Though controversial, he is the highest-paid         
radio personality in the United States[citation needed] and the most fined         
personality in radio broadcast history.                                             
He is best known for his national radio show, which for many years was             
syndicated on FM radio stations (and a few AM stations) throughout the United       
States until his last terrestrial radio broadcast on December 16, 2005. He began   
broadcasting on the subscription-based Sirius satellite radio service on January   
9, 2006.                                                                           
In addition to radio, Stern moved into publishing, television, feature films,       
and music. He has written two books, Private Parts, which he adapted into a film,   
and Miss America. Stern's television endeavors include a variety show on New       
York City's WWOR-TV, a nightly E! show documenting his radio broadcasts, a         
similar CBS program that competed with Saturday Night Live for a time, "Howard     
On-Demand" for digital cable subscribers in various markets, and Son of the         
Beach, a parody of Baywatch for FX which Stern executive produced.                 
In 2006, Howard Stern was elected into Time Magazine's "Time 100: The People who   
shape our world" and was ranked #7 in Forbes Magazine's 2006 annual Celebrity       
100. On February 13, 2007, Stern became engaged to his long-time girlfriend,       
model Beth Ostrosky.
