Having always wanted to be a disc-jockey, Howard Stern works his way painfully from radio at his 1970's college to a Detroit station. It is with a move to Washington that he hits on an outrageous off-the-wall style that catches audience attention. Despite his on-air blue talk, at home he is a loving husband. He needs all the support he can get when he joins NBC in New York and comes up against a very different vision of radio. Written by

When Howard arrives at WCCC, he is standing at the studio door as Fred finishes his program. To the left of the door, there is an "on air" light that is initially off, even though Fred is broadcasting. In the next shot, when Howard enters the studio, the "on air" light is on, and is then turned off. See more »
The ratings that I see on Private Parts really do the movie an injustice. As of now I see the ratings are at 6.5, but I have to tell you that I'd give it a 9.
Stern is not GLORIFYING himself here. He's just telling a story as to how he got to where he is and in many cases criticizes himself. The movie is by no means egotistical which is what I TOTALLY expected to find. Instead it leads you through a tale of Poverty to Success.
Great Job Howard. I may not like you much, but you really pulled this one off.
