Legendary Talent Howard Stern left his highly-rated syndicated show on terrestrial radio because of ongoing issues with the FCC and his disdain for being censored. Ironically, “The Howard Stern Show” has shifted since its move to the non-censored airwaves of Sirius XM 10 years ago.
Scattered among the gleefully vulgar mainstays are now long, starkly intimate live exchanges — character excavations that have made Mr. Stern one of the most deft and engrossing celebrity interviewers in the business and a sought-after stop for stars selling a movie or setting the record straight.
Howard Stern also recognizes his evolution and told “The New York Times”:
“I couldn’t have done the show I’m doing now 20 years ago,” Mr. Stern said over the phone. “I’ve changed a lot. I’d be sort of pathetic if I’d reached this point in my life and I hadn’t. How else do you have longevity? There are so many guys who started out with me in radio, who have disappeared, because they can’t broaden their view of what entertainment should be, or get in touch with what they find to be exciting and fun and funny.”
