    Shock jock Howard Stern rails against Fargo after jab from local TV host

    FARGO – A local TV morning show host's shocked reaction to Howard Stern's income resulted in a four-minute tirade against Fargo by the well-known radio personality on his show Monday.

    The comments on Stern's income, made by Chris Berg on a recent installment of the "North Dakota Today" morning show, prompted the ire of Stern, who took to the airwaves Monday attacking both Berg and Fargo.

    "The reason I worked so hard is so I wouldn't have to live in Fargo, North Dakota, honestly. No offense if you live there. I'm pretty sure if you're living there, you're trying to get out ... Gee whiz ... I didn't know Fargo still existed ... Good lord. Well, anyway," Stern said.

    This isn't the first time Berg's comments have garnered him some unkind national attention. In January 2015, Berg said that "the white man is keeping the brown man down," when discussing the racial makeup of the recently-announced Oscar nominations. It led Jezebel, a feminist blog, to poke fun at him.

    Berg, who also hosts the 6:30 p.m. "POV" program on KVLY-TV in Fargo-Moorhead, declined an interview with The Forum Monday evening, but was incredulous on the original broadcast when it came to Stern's place on the Forbes Celebrity 100 ranking of the top-earning stars.

    "How is Howard Stern making $95 million a year?" Berg asked of his co-host during a recent show.

    This month, Stern was ranked as fifth-highest paid, and Taylor Swift ranked as eighth, which was the source of some of Berg and his co-host's questioning of Stern's relevance.

    Stern was undoubtedly unhappy with the line of conversation.

    "Douche, you can do the same thing. Leave Fargo, get a show and work on your comedy chops and work on being interesting," Stern said.

    Stern and longtime co-host Robin Quivers were defensive of Stern's continued prominence, noting that his gig hosting "America's Got Talent," an NBC talent search show, airs on the same network of which KVLY is an affiliate.

    "I'm on NBC at night on 'America's Got Talent,' on the same channel that (Berg's co-host) is on, except I'm on nationally and she's on locally, and 'Howard Stern is still around,' " Stern continued.

    Stern widened the aim of his anger to not only Berg but the Fargo-Moorhead area.

    "Sirius satellite radio is the best thing to happen to Fargo, North Dakota, because they can now get national programming on their radio and not have to be stuck listening to two nitwits who don't understand the business," Stern said.

    as we've come to realize after all these years, howard only goes after low-hanging fruit (or people who are in a position of less power). anything that goes against his new image is annoys him plus he likes the idea of having to defend his absurd income.
    those liens on his house are ignored because it gives us a glimpse into what an entitled cheap bastard he really is.

    HOWARD needs to work in his comedy chops and work on being interesting.

    Just reading his "tirade" put me to sleep. If I wasn't at work I'd still be sleeping.

    It's not like the show is good, but heaven help anyone who points that out.

    Oh and, my dad was from Moorhead and was a far superior father and husband than Wiggy!!!

    And Dad had marboes, too.

    To be fair, people from all over the planet are wondering the same thing.
