Katie Couric August 19 2013
He is one of the most talked about, polarizing, and controversial figures in broadcasting, and on August 19, he is spending an hour with Katie Couric. It’s a no-holds-barred, revealing hour with Howard Stern on Monday’s show. Whatever you think of him, he has certainly etched out a remarkable career, but that is not all he will be talking about in his one-on-one chat with Katie. Here’s a look into Monday’s episode.
Katie Show: Howard Stern America’s Got Talent
His nickname is the King of All Media, and it may just be true. Stern has been on the radio since 1976, and since 2004, he has been one of the headlining names on Sirius XM, the subscription satellite radio service, where he still hosts his daily radio show.
Stern has been hounded by headlines throughout his career, often related to his business decisions and career pursuits. But more often than not, he comes out on top, and he does not seem to be afraid of persevering in the face of a challenge.
You can see him all summer long as one of the celebrity judges for the NBC reality competition America’s Got Talent, and you can read his life story in his own words in the book Private Parts (which was made into a movie by the same name). See what stories he is telling now on Katie Couric August 19.
Katie Couric: Howard Stern Married
Howard met his current wife, Beth Ostrosky, in 2000, and they were married eight years later. She is a fierce animal rights activist and a TV personality in her own right. She is also a frequent talk show guest, so you might have seen her plugging the North Shore Animal League at some point.
She will be on hand for his interview, in which he turns the tables and leaves Katie speechless by asking his own questions. I wonder if they will cover his experiences in transcendental meditation.
Though his style can be provocative, he is a broadcaster from the old school, and his conversational style is often disarming to guests. I loved seeing him chat with David Letterman last year…they both have a true love of broadcasting.
