Sixteen People In Howard Stern’s Universe, From Robin Quivers to Crackhead Bob

These are the characters Stern has amassed during his three decades on the air

Robin Quivers has been Howard's newscaster and co-anchor since they were paired up in Washington D.C. 30 years ago. In 1997, she played herself in the movie Private Parts. The film shows her being fired by WNBC's program director for not running a raunchy bit, but in reality the New York radio channel didn't hire her when they brought Stern to the city in 1982. He eventually convinced them to hire her, and they have remained together ever since. Howard was shocked when CNN's Piers Morgan suggested that Howard selected her because of her race. "I couldn't care what color she was [when we started], he said.  "I was desperate. I needed somebody who was fantastic on the radio to work with me, someone who played off me, who had a fabulous laugh, who got my humor, knew when to back off and let me roll and knew when to come in and save me. And that was Robin."
