Howard Stern is new to Twitter, tweeting away at @HowardStern, but as with other media channels, he instantly seems to get it.

Matthew McGrory was 32. He was the deep-voiced 7-foot-plus actor who moved from appearances on Howard Stern's radio show to a high-profile role as a gentle giant in the movie "Big Fish." As a fan of Stern's morning show, I was well aware of Big Foot, but "Big Fish" earned

Clear Channel Radio has suspended broadcasts of the Howard Stern show on its six stations that carry it, citing sexually graphic content from Tuesday's broadcast. I listened to the bit on Tuesday that Clear Channel Radio objected to. It was an interview with Rick Salomon, the guy in the infamous
I must admit, I didn't see this one coming. Stuttering John Melendez, long time bit player on the Howard Stern Show, has left to pursue a job with "The Tonight Show". He's going to replace Edd Hall as the announcer of all things. I must admit I still enjoy Howard
