Howard Stern Retiring After 35 Years On Air
Howard Stern is retiring from radio after 35 epic years on air, RadarOnline.com has learned.
The media mogul shocked fans Monday morning, April 15, when he announced that he would be signing off The Stern Show after his contract is up in 2020.
“When I get out of radio. I’m getting out man. I’m pretty sure I’m almost out the door,” Stern, 65, told his longtime cohost, Robin Quivers. “I’m getting out anyway because I realize that radio is affecting my health. When I’m home on the weekends I’m fine.”
“And then what happens?” Quivers asked.
“And then when I come here all kinds of s**t happens. I won’t get into all the details, but I get all f**king anxious, and medical issues. I’m getting out,” Stern doubled down.
He then joked to Quivers that she could stay on with Fred Norris — Stern’s longest tenured staff member on the show.
“No really, I’m done,” Stern insisted. “Two years and I’m out of here.”
This isn’t the first time the Shock Jock has spoken out about his health issues.
In 2017, he scared fans when he took an unconventional sick day away from the show.
“I took a sick day and I’m still sick,” he explained following his return.
Just last spring, Stern hinted at retirement when he revealed that he was no longer happy producing his radio show.
“I’m just one of these human beings, I’ve accepted, [who] is just miserable all the time. And work makes me miserable.” Stern said.
