Storyline

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 Jeremy Perkins {J-26}

Alternate Versions

For its airings on the USA Network, the movie occasionally pauses and 'Howard Stern' appears to provide commentary on the movie. Also, in an atypical move for a basic cable channel, USA Network presented the movie with no edits -- but with all spoken obscenities bleeped and objectionable visuals (nudity, drug use) electronically masked. This version also airs on VH1. See more »

"Shock jock" hits the big screen
5 February 1999 | by Bob-376See all my reviews

I was working as an usher at my local cinema when I first saw this movie, so I saw it quite a few times and it seemed to get better with every viewing. The story is of American disc jockey Howard Stern and his rise to superstardom. It has a great script with good scenes especially the one through the end titles.
