Okay, so this article is for all of you out there who absolutely can’t get enough of pretty much the most iconic shock jock of our entire era. I’ve got to admit it – I love Howard Stern – less in the ‘Oh my God, he’s so sexy’ kind of way and more or less in the kind of way where you just can’t you’re your eyes off of what looks like a horrible, fiery and explosive train crash that never quite makes impact.
I lump him in with my Ozzy Osbourne, Tom Waits and Tommy Lee Jones obsessions of hot messes that will somehow manage to outlive us all.
Anyways, I digress. We’re bringing you the answers to your biggest, most requested questions on America’s favorite, somehow still lovable douche bag.
Where does Howard Stern Live?
Howard Stern’s House NY (Current)
Back in 2008, Stern threw down $15.1 million for two apartments located just below his existing 4,149 square-foot penthouse on the 54th floor in Manhattan’s Millennium Tower. These two units added a total of 2,546 square feet to his growing mansion in the sky.
He purchased the original penthouse back in 1998 for $4.75 million. Later he added the adjoining 1,011 square-foot unit for $5.75 million.
Howard Stern House Long Island (Current)
Way back in 2005, Howard dropped $20M on an empty lot in Southhampton, NY. We all knew something insane was about to be built, and we weren’t wrong folks.
When it comes to Howard Stern house interior, his Southhampton property is the most incredible. He worked with an architect to create the perfect space, equipped with multiple stone fireplaces, a bowling alley, gorgeous light fixtures, all the fixins.
From imported marble countertops to guitars no expense was spared. The foyer is two stories with a balcony overlooking the bottom floor. There were also several living spaces, guest suites, a study, and a stunning pool looking out over the ocean.
While the home was being built, Stern was renting out a nearby home for a reported $800,000/month. Quite the price, but he can afford it.
Howard Stern Palm Beach House (Current)
Howard Stern house Florida – in 2018 it was reported that Stern and his wife were the buyers behind a sickeningly gorgeous $52 million purchase of a 12-bedroom palatial estate sitting on 3.25 acres in Palm Beach, Florida in 2013. What are the taxes on a place like that? It was reported that the two were hit with a mind-blowing $903,543 tax bill. Yikes!
Even more interesting is the fact that the property was ranked number 8 on the town’s list of “highest valued residential properties”. The home has reportedly 18,673 square feet of space with a smaller structure within – presumably a guest house? – having 1,196 square feet of space.
The property was originally owned by a textile and apparel executive by the name of Martin Trust and his wife.
So, there you have it! Everything you needed to know about arguably the most popular shock jock of our generation! They say that being bad is a crime, but there’s no denying that it looks oh-so-good when it comes to Stern and his luxurious lifestyle.
How old is Howard Stern?
Howard Stern was born January 12, 1954 – which clocks him in at 64 years old at the time this article was published. This also makes him a Capricorn and for those of you interested in Zodiac stuff you’ll also be interested in finding that many Capricorn men have traits which are often perceived as cold, uncaring and callous, yet inside they tend to have a very raw and sensitive heart. They also tend to have very “cynical and nihilistic” views of the world and people and thus, have an extremely small inner circle of friends. At least that’s what Astrology.com says – and I trust them with my life.
How tall is Howard Stern?
If you’ve seen any press pics of this guy it’s easy to notice right away that he’s one tall dude because he pretty much always dwarfs any poor soul standing next to him. Well, my friends, that’s because he’s 6’5, and as a 5’9 woman who never wears anything less than a four-inch heel, I fully understand the appeal in that – just not him.
Howard Stern Net Worth
How much money is Howard Stern worth? Howard Stern has a net worth of $650 million. I’ll be honest, that’s all I need to know to be attracted to him.
Stern started out hosting a few radio shows in Massachusetts which eventually led to a successful morning show in 1981 in Washington, D.C., which led to him being offered a $1 million deal to work with WNBC in New York.
After he got suspended for inappropriate content, Infinity Broadcasting offered him a five-year contract in 1985 for $500,000, during which time he started to gain an interest in television.
In 1990 he re-signed a deal with Infinity Broadcasting for $10 million and started hosting The Howard Stern Show. In 1992 he released his wild and crazy, self-hosted, variety show style tape called ‘Butt Bongo Fiesta’ and literally made bank. It was a commercial success and sales grossed $10 million.
After this he signed a $1 million book publishing deal with Simon and Schuster for ‘Private Parts’ in 1993 which later on got a film adaptation by Paramount Pictures in 1995. This same year he got another publishing deal with ReganBooks for $3 million for his book ‘Miss America’.
In the following years he continued to do a handful of television and film projects and in 1999 Forbes said that he was earning over $20 million a year.
In 2004 he signed a five-year contract with Sirius Broadcasting for a whopping $500 million and ended up having it renewed in 2010. The following year he replaced Piers Morgan on ‘America’s Got Talent’ and low and behold you have one of the highest paid personalities in television.
What band was Howard Stern in?
Okay, so for those of you who weren’t aware, Stern was literally in a band called The Losers for quite some time and they were surprisingly way better than you could ever imagine, especially considering they were a band comprised entirely of non-musicians.
The deal is that he and his staff members thought up the idea to start a band while he was still working on The Howard Stern Show back in 1997. Green Day had been scheduled for an appearance and the band had dropped their instruments off at the studio prior to being on-air and the staff decided to tinker around with them.
They decided it would be awesome to start a staff band and named themselves The Losers after their original drummer, Scott the Engineer because everyone called him a loser.
Over the years they played with artists like James Brown, Willie Nelson and Barry Williams, to name a few and in 2000 they decided to start the segment Battle of the Bands on his talk show. During this part of the show, the band would battle with actual celebrity bands in a competition in front of a panel of three judges in the record industry.
Needless to say, they pretty much always won – it was his show after all. If you haven’t seen any clips, you should. They’re hilarious and totally awesome.
Did Howard Stern retire?
Not yet! But the National Enquirer recently reported that the shock jock plans to retire in 2020 when his contract ends with Sirius XM Radio. Earlier this year on his radio show he was quoted saying, “I’m just one of these human beings, I’ve accepted is just miserable all the time. And work makes me miserable. But then people say to me, ‘if you didn’t have work you’d be miserable too, you would miss it.’ But I really do not believe that’s true.”
Listen, the dude is pushing 70 and he’s married to that stone cold fox Beth Ostrosky – his job is done.
Who are Howard Stern’s kids?
Stern has three daughters with his first wife Alison Berns, who he met while attending Boston University (he put her in one of his student films – awwwww). They have Emily Beth, who was born in 1983, Debra Jennifer, born in 1986, and Ashley Jade who popped out in 1993.
