Howard Stern came to fame as a “shock jock”, a radio host who pushes the limits of decency and convention while entertaining, and shocking, their listeners. Once one of the most polarizing figures in American culture, Howard has aged like a fine wine, growing new audience bases, reaching out to more Americans, and increasing his reputation and popularity across many demographics.
So, on his 67th birthday, let’s take a look at the man who made pushing the envelope a career, and wish Howard Stern a happy *bleeping* birthday.
Childhood Home, Roosevelt, NY
Howard Stern was born on January 12, 1954, in Queens, NYC. When he was young, the family moved to Roosevelt, on Long Island. While there, he got his first taste of entertaining, playing with marionettes and puppets, as well as joining a band, where he sang and played on the keyboard. His dad worked in radio, perhaps giving Howard the initial exposure and interest in the career that would make him famous.
Fred Norris Homes
Early in his career, Howard came across fellow radio host Fred Norris, and the two became friends. When Howard became popular enough, he was able to bring Fred onto his show, an opportunity of a lifetime. Since that first gig in 1981, Fred has worked with Stern in several cities and on several stations, and has an estimated net worth of at least $16 million!
Apartment in NYC
Fred bought an apartment in New York City in 2011, which is smart since the radio show is usually recorded in the city, and his main residence is about two hours outside the city. He paid $1.4 million for the 1,370 square foot unit.
Home in the East Hamptons, NY
Fred’s wife, Allison, is a real estate agent in the East Hamptons. The family owns a home there, with great landscaping, lots of privacy, and, of course, a pool.
Robin Quivers Mansion in Beach Haven, NJ
Robin Quivers is the long-running co-host to Howard Stern on his radio show. The “Voice of Reason” plays such an integral role in the show that Howard has said, without her the show would be cancelled. But Robin is more than a sidekick, she’s become Howard’s best friend over the 40 years they’ve worked together.
Robin has earned a lot of money working with Howard, making at least $10 million a year. In 2013, she sold off much of her real estate and bought a seven bedroom mansion in New Jersey.
She paid about $3.4 million for the mansion in the small and exclusive town of Beach Haven, about 70 miles from Manhattan. It’s a lot of money to most people, but since her net worth is at least $75 million, she could easily pay cash!
Mansion in Southampton, NY
Howard and his wife own a gorgeous mansion in elite Southampton on Long Island. He bought 4.5 acres in 2005 and built a custom mansion in 2012. It has eight bedrooms, 12 bathrooms, a master suite as big as many homes, bowling alley and wine cellar.
It also has a studio, which was great during the Covid lockdowns, as Howard recorded his show from here.
Howard likes to maintain and upgrade his property, which is easy enough to do since he is worth abut half a billion dollars, and makes about $100 million more every year.
Penthouse, Manhattan, NY
Howard has long worked in downtown NYC, so it only makes sense that he has a place nearby. And what a place it is! Over two decades, he acquired two entire floors of the Millennium Tower in downtown Manhattan, giving him 8,000 of living space, all for a cool $21 million. This building is home to some of the richest and most famous New York residents, so it’s perfect for Howard.
Mansion, Palm Beach, FL
In 2013, Howard dropped $52 million on an estate in Palm Beach, Florida. He’s since spent more than $13 million renovating the home, including adding a studio nearly identical to the one he has in New York. He’s recorded some shows here in 2021, stating he prefers the lifestyle, weather, and tax structure in Florida.
The house has a custom 1,000 foot closet just for his wife alone, five bedrooms, 12.5 bathrooms, and a guest house. The home has 19,000 square feet of living space on 3.25 acres, has a pool, and direct beach access. What a life!
Howard has come a long way, from rough neighborhood in New York City to one of the richest entertainers in the world! He has amazing real estate, a great job, and most importantly, friends and family who love and support him as he continues to evolve in his career. On his birthday, no matter where he is, he’s sure to have a wonderful birthday
Happy birthday, Howard!
