PALM BEACH — Shock jock Howard Stern has sent shockwaves through the social media world after the SiriusXM host took a “personal day” and went off the air this week.
Fans claim the curly-haired trash talker has never taken a missed a show before and earlier in the year claimed he wouldn’t do it unless a parent died.
Speculations have been swirling and the theories have ranged from the death of his parents, to the 63-year-old host’s own health, to trouble with the station, to the lawsuit that stemmed from the show airing a confidential call between a woman and the IRS.
Stern’s wife Beth Stern was spotted outside the couple’s Manhattan home Friday and said, “Everything is great. He’s coming back on Monday. He had to take a personal day, that’s all.”
We doubt it’s that simple for the workaholic Palm Beacher, who is constantly in motion.
Seriously, the man’s done $13 million in renovations to his 20,000-square-foot, $52 million house.
It would take a lot to make him stop, even for a day.
