Howard's Early Training
Howard Stern's parents Ben and Ray Stern at the Sirius Radio studios in New York City.
"The ability to interview people and read your subject comes from my mother being very demanding of me with one thing: That I should be able to read her mood and know what she wanted. I could look in my mother's eyes and know everything. I was trained to make my mother happy. And I swear to you, when I sit there on the radio, I don't miss a trick because I'll study it. I count how many times you blink. I watch everything."
