* BlackBestFriend: Subverted with Robin Quivers. She's been the news anchor and a co-host of The HowardStern Show since 1981, although originally she was only given the job of news anchor by [[ExecutiveMeddling executives]] in the hopes that she would calm Stern down and fulfill the normal role of Black Best Friend. As common with Stern, this only served to increase his wild tendencies, and he interacted and involved Quivers with the show so much through the years that it's obvious she's fully a realized person with flaws, likes, and dislikes.

* CorruptTheCutie: "Stuttering" John Melendez for many years was a lovable enough intern partaking in the celebrity interviews where John would go to events and ask celebrities embarrassing questions. Years later, Jay Leno gave him the announcer spot on TheTonightShow, which played right into Howard's own hate for Jay. John later on would blast Howard in interviews for not paying him enough. It came to a bigger head in 2009 when John responded to Howard's continued verbal attack on Jay by telling people "not to drink the Kool Aid". Howard has cut off any and all ties to Stuttering John, even forbidding his wife to contiune her friendship with John's wife.

** His knowledge of both past and current events was ''very'' well showcased on the show that aired during [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KCbmD1pGGZw September 11, 2001]]. Within minutes of the hijacked planes hitting the World Trade Center Towers and the Pentagon, Stern said that OsamaBinLaden was probably behind the attacks due to his knowledge of past terrorist events that bin Laden had been involved in.

* MeanCharacterNiceActor: Howard is notorious for being a jerk on air, but people who work with Stern have stated that off-air, Howard is actually very generous and polite, a stark contrast from his on-air persona.

It's this side of him that NBC felt comfortable enough to sign him to the judging panel for ''America's Got Talent'', much to the surprise of many people who just know him as the shock jock.

Due to the controversial nature of his show, Stern can be a polarizing figure. There's almost no middle ground opinions about him. There are rich, poor, conservative, liberal, and people of all different ages, races, and nationalities from around the world that believe him to be a very prolific and entertaining satirist, and there are just as many people in all those categories that believe him to be nothing short of a foul mouthed, sexist, racist, sleaze peddling, antichrist. Regardless of whether you actually like him and his show, Stern has often been quoted as saying "I just care whether [[MoneyDearBoy they listen or not]]."

* ColbertBump: In 1998, ''People'' magazine held an online vote for "Sexiest Man Alive." After being mentioned on the show, Hank the Angry Drunken Dwarf won by ''tens of thousands of votes.'' The magazine, naturally, ignored the results.



* CreatorBreakdown: Some fans believe Stern to have been at his most vile, vicious, and [[ArsonMurderAndJayWalking entertaining]] during the mid to late [[TheNineties 90's]], and although not known at the time, this ran concurrent with the breakdown of his marriage and his eventual divorce.
* DawsonCasting: In his autobiographical movie, 43yr old Stern played the role of himself from college on.
** Lampshaded by Stern himself in the narration.
--> "I know I seem a little too old to be in college. But for this movie you've gotta [[WillingSuspensionOfDisbelief suspend disbelief]]."



* ExecutiveMeddling: Stern constantly battled against radio and TV executives during the span of his career over the format and content of his show. When he began his career, if you weren't on a political or news show, most hosts just repeatedly played music, interjecting bits of humor and commentary during the breaks between songs and commercials, the news anchor only spoke when delivering the news, guests never stayed longer than their allotted segment time, and the content was as sober as a priest on Sunday. Stern had to continuously fight against executives to change all of those things, and he eventually revolutionized morning radio because of it.
* FetishFuel: While there are so many examples, this one bears special mention. He lets female guests ride his Sybian, including Carmen Electra.
** To elaborate, a Sybian is, for the want of a better description, an industrial grade vibrator, extremely adjustable, with several different attachments. As close as you can get to the real thing without having to deal with the rest of the dude. '''Cannot be moved to YMMV as YMMV on this page is locked!'''



* {{Hatedom}}: As mentioned above, what could bring multiple groups of Conservatives, Liberals, feminists, concerned parents, and extremely religious people together? Hating Howard Stern of course.
** Ironically former fans of Howard might make up his biggest {{Hatedom}} now.

* OneOfUs: Stern has been an avid comic book fan since childhood, to the point that he specifically tries to have many of the directors, producers, and actors of comic book inspired movies on his show to be interviewed. He's also been quoted as saying most of the television shows he watches are science fiction or superhero based. Stern also enjoys chess so much that he plays online almost every day and hired a coach to help better improve his game.
** Somewhat subverted since Howard has made a career out of mocking geeks, Star Trek/Star Wars fans, wrestling fans, and people who read comics past the age of 13. The happened mostly during TheNineties,
