Collecting three decades worth of essential interviews, essays, articles, quotes and news items related to the pioneering radio broadcaster, "AMERICAN ICON: The HOWARD STERN Reader" is an exceptional, 346 page book that tells the Stern story sequentially. A must-read for all fans, the book - which is the first new title about Stern in more than a decade - begins with Howard's discharge from New York's WNBC in 1985. It follows the radio guru's career during his twenty-year run on FM radio, beginning with K-Rock in New York. During this time he battled the FCC, launched a legendary television run (with programs for WWOR, E! and CBS/Eyemark), triumphed as a best-selling author (twice) and starred in his own blockbuster movie, 1997's "Private Parts." Stern's lengthy indecency battles with the government, his victorious exit from terrestrial radio to the unexpurgated world of SiriusXM Satellite Radio and the launch of his own Howard TV channel are also explored.
