The well-known radio and television personality became famous for DJing on rock stations and hosting radio talk shows in the early 70s and 80s. He is also known for his radio show, "The Howard Stern Show", which gained popularity when it became nationally syndicated on terrestrial radio from 1986 to 2005. He used to be extremely honest on air. Given that Stern has been in the entertainment business for as long as he has, it's hardly a shocker that he is worth $650 million as of 2023. 

His radio program was extremely popular in the morning slot. He left regular radio in 2005 and signed a five-year deal for $500 million with Sirius Satellite Radio. His show debuted in 2006 and since then he has earned more than $1 billion from Sirius alone. In 2020, he signed a 5-year extension with Sirius that is worth an astounding $120 million per year, or $600 million total. It's important to note that Stern makes around $90 million from the $120 million deal as this includes the show's production cost and salaries of personalities like Robin Quivers and Gary Dell-Abate.

He paid $20 million for a slot in New York's Southhampton. He later had a mansion built on the land. In 2023, he paid $52 million for a mansion in Palm Beach Florida. The house boasts 12 bedrooms and offers amazing views of the ocean.
