As the self-described "King of All Media," shock jock Howard Stern was the most celebrated and controversial radio personality in history. Lewd, outrageous and overwhelmingly popular, Stern rose to fame thanks to such bits as Lesbian Dial-a-Date, making a woman orgasm on-air as she sat on a speaker, and hosting a game show with homeless people as contestants, all of which propelled him into the upper echelon of celebrity. Staying true to his self-proclaimed media title, Stern successfully ventured into other areas by scoring hit television programs on E! Entertainment and Pay-Per-View, publishing two best-selling memoirs, and starring in the hit autobiographical comedy film, "Private Parts" (1997). But such popularity was not without its price. Over the years, Stern was publicly chastised by a variety of advocacy groups while his employers paid heavy fines to the Federal Communications Commission. Despite such headaches, Stern was consistent in his quest to offend and never changed his routine. He eventually earned unanimous praise for his on-air handling of the 9/11 terrorist attacks that occurred blocks away from his studio. For his unwavering dedication to lowbrow entertainment, Stern earned the loyalty of millions, many of whom became subscribers of Sirius satellite radio when he left the airwaves for good in 2005. Though he flew under the radar for a few years, Stern once again drew ire when he was named as a host for "America's Got Talent" (NBC, 2006- ), proving that his influence never diminished.
