Biography

Robin Quivers was the good-natured but forthright co-host of shock jock Howard Stern's various media ventures for over three decades, ascending with him from regional broadcasting in the early 1980s to one of the top-rated satellite radio programs in the 21st century. Throughout it all, Quivers remained Stern's most even-keeled on-air companion, complimenting and often parrying his outrageous comments with a polished delivery and wry sense of humor that meshed well with his part-puerile, part-observational stream-of-consciousness style. Unlike many of the comics, on-air figures and human oddities that orbited Stern's media empire, Quivers was selective about parlaying her fame to personal projects, choosing to devote her energies to charitable efforts instead of grasps at solo stardom. In doing so, she cultivated her own entertainment media spotlight, which focused on her weight loss efforts as well as her recovery from surgery to remove a cancerous tumor in 2012. Still, it was Quivers' relationship with Stern, which remained unbroken since 1981 that made her a highly recognizable figure in popular culture.
