In his search for radio work following his graduation, Stern took up an offer to work evenings at WRNW, a progressive rock station in Briarcliff Manor, New York. He was unsure of his talent and questioned his future as a professional in the industry, writing “I freaked out. I got real nervous that I wasn’t good enough”. Stern accepted a marketing role at Benton & Bowles, a New York advertising agency, which he soon “quit without giving notice” in favor of a position in the creative department.
He lasted three hours before he was fired “because their personnel department realized that I was the guy who just quit”. Stern then worked in Queens as a radio salesman selling advertising time without considerable success. He wrote, “All of a sudden … I realized I had turned down a job in radio”. With encouragement from his mother and girlfriend, Stern contacted WRNW for work and agreed to take cover shifts surrounding the Christmas holidays in 1976.
Impressed with his reliability and professional approach, the station’s director hired Stern full-time for a four-hour midday shift for six days a week, for $96 a week. After several months, Stern became the station’s production director, which lasted until November 1977 when he became its program director for an increased salary of $250 a week.
Douglas found Stern’s next job, hosting mornings at album-oriented rock station WWDC in Washington, D.C. Stern was cautious about the offer at first as the general manager “was not really aware of what I did,” but he accepted the offer and started on March 2, 1981.During his time relocating from Detroit, Stern spent several weeks planning out a new show, determined to become more successful as the station presented a good chance for him to work in New York City, his career goal.
Stern’s first venture into television began when the Fox network sought a replacement for The Late Show, a late-night talk show hosted by Joan Rivers. Following discussions with the network that began in late 1986,Stern agreed to five one-hour pilots that were produced for an estimated $400,000, with guitarist Leslie West as his band leader and comedian Steve Rossi as the show’s announcer.
The show was subject to screen tests among focus groups in California, after which Fox decided not to pick it up. One Fox executive described the pilots as “poorly produced”, “in poor taste”, and “boring”. Stern went on to host his first pay-per-view event, Howard Stern’s Negligeé and Underpants Party, in February 1988.The special was purchased in 60,000 homes and grossed $1.2 million.
In April 1998, Stern announced his return to Saturday night television after he signed a deal with CBS to compete with Saturday Night Live on NBC and MADtv on Fox. His show, The Howard Stern Radio Show, an hour-long program that aired on mostly CBS affiliates, was formed of taped highlights from the radio show with additional material unseen from his nightly E! show, including animated segments and exclusive behind the scenes footage. Following its debut on August 22, 1998, on 79 stations nationwide, the show began to lose affiliates after two episodes as local broadcasters became concerned with the risque content.
