Standing tall at 6 feet and 5 inches, it’s no wonder Howard Stern is a huge personality. He was born on January 12, 1954 in Jackson Heights, New York. He became famous for his outspoken and raunchy style, which often lands the shock jock in hot water. During his tenure with WNBC, he often clashed with management over his on-air behavior, and eventually he left to work for WXRK, where his popularity soon soared. In 2006, he became tired of the FCC regulations at the station and joined Sirius Satellite Radio. In 2012, Stern became the newest judge on America’s Got Talent and this caused outrage among some viewers, who didn’t think his style would be suited for the show.
