    HOLLYWOOD – Producers of NBC's America's Got Talent expected their emotional tribute to departing judge Howard Stern last Wednesday to resonate with the King of All Media's fans. They just weren't expecting those fans to be 10-year-old children.

    [​IMG]

    "In his voiceover, Howard remarked that 10-year-olds are always clamoring to sit on his lap whenever they see him in restaurants," laughs producer Jason Raff. "Honestly, I assumed that Howard was just being funny. But then we started receiving these beautiful stories and photos from the parents of some of the very special ten-year-olds that Howard has encountered in his four-year journey as head judge on AGT. And I thought, These stories need to be shared."

    [Ed. note: The identities of the children in the accompanying photos have been obscured at their parents' request.]

    My son was born gay, one father writes, and in Howard he sees a friend, supporter and advocate for the gay community. We were having an early tenth birthday dinner at my son's favorite restaurant, Nobu, when we heard a man two tables behind us refer to gay people as "God's gift to the world." My son's face lit up, because he recognized the voice as Howard Stern's. My son will never forget that rare chance encounter with radio's most legendary broadcaster, and will follow him wherever he may go once his contract with Sirius XM ends this December. But he will no longer watch AGT, because he and all of his friends hate Simon Cowell.

    Other letters echo the compassion shown by satellite radio's biggest star.

    My 10-year-old son was born handicapped, another parent writes. When he heard Howard tell [stuttering comedian] Drew Lynch that he was an inspiration, my son pumped his fists in the air with enthusiasm I'd never seen. We were buying hot dogs from a street vendor on the Avenue of the Americas at 11:30 one Tuesday morning when we heard this warm and beautiful voice order "three of the usual." My son spun around his wheelchair to see if the voice belonged to his new hero, and was over the moon when he realized it did. Howard paid for my son's footlong, and even let him keep the change. My son says he's going to use that $5.99 to pay for Howard's new Whalerock app, debuting in the iTunes store in January 2016.

    But Raff says one letter in particular really pulled at his heartstrings.

    My son was born black, writes the boy's mother, and never expected in this day and age to make friends with a white. But that all changed when he saw the beautiful friendship between Howard Stern and Nick Cannon. He couldn't believe it when he saw Howard joke around with Mel B, treating her as his equal. And then when my son, who is turning 11 this January, found out that Howard has been working with a black co-host for over 30 years, and even saved her life when she had cancer, it gave my son hope. Hope for his future, and for our country's future. Meeting Howard at that Hamptons Magazine party was the highlight of my boy's life.

    And what does her son want for his 11th birthday this January?

    To see Howard's popularity with kids in my son's demographic leveraged into another mutually advantageous network television deal
    , the proud mother writes.

    Great job! It's really not any more ridiculous than many of the things Howard has said about himself.

    Most 10 year olds have gay tendencies. They all play soccer.

    I would really love to see you find a way to send that out as a fake press release and see who bites

    They know Big Bird isn't real and any resemblance is purely coincidental correct?

    I'm sure EmptyLighthouse and Hitfix would bite. It sounds just like the other Buchwald bullshit they print.
