Howard Stern: A Radio Icon

Howard Stern was born on January 12, 1954, in Jackson Heights, Queens, New York City. His journey to becoming a radio legend began in the 1970s when he started working in radio after graduating from Boston University. Stern’s unique blend of humor, wit, and no-holds-barred style quickly garnered attention, leading to his rise in the radio industry.

By the early 1980s, Stern had become a household name in the world of radio. His controversial and provocative style pushed the boundaries of what was considered acceptable on the airwaves. Known for his candid interviews and irreverent humor, Stern’s show, “The Howard Stern Show,” became a cultural phenomenon, attracting millions of devoted fans.

A Star in the Draco Constellation

In 1980, Howard Stern received a truly unique and celestial gift from International Star Registry. A star in the Draco constellation was officially named after him, immortalizing his influence not just in the world of radio but in the cosmos as well. ISR, founded in 1979, is a company that allows individuals to symbolically name stars after their loved ones, celebrities, or even themselves. This gesture not only marked a significant moment in Stern’s career but also highlighted the boundless reach of his influence.

Draco, meaning “dragon” in Latin, is a serpentine constellation that winds its way through the northern sky. It is home to a variety of interesting celestial objects, including several binary stars and deep-sky objects like galaxies and star clusters. The naming of a star in this constellation added an extra layer of mystique to Stern’s already enigmatic persona.
