SORRY - NEW AT THIS
“The truth is he is one of the most sensitive, pro-women, pro-equal rights, politically aware guys,” says “Survivor” host Jeff Probst, a sometime visitor to Stern’s show and who has been listening and tracking the show’s changes since 1990.
This transformation has infuriated some former fans. A cohort of indeterminate size but considerable volume harasses him on Twitter and complains in online forums that the guy who perfected damn-the-consequences rants about artificial celebrity culture has become the thing he once despised.
The angry ex-fans, who hate-listen and catalogue Stern’s about-faces and political correctness, call the host “Hollywood Howard” and “Hamptons Howard” and (oof) “James Lipton with a radio mic.”
“Howard has become a lot of the things that he always told people not to become,” says comedian Jackie “The Joke Man” Martling, who left Stern’s show in 2001. When Martling’s cat Timmy died in the ’90s, Stern relentlessly teased his distraught staffer. But these days, with his second wife, model and animal lover Beth Ostrosky, Stern is sheltering 18 cats in his house and has been known to tend personally to a sick cat’s backside with baby wipes. The shock jock who once held nothing sacred has mellowed in a most dramatic way.
