Howard Stern signed on as a DJ for now defunct WNBC-AM in New York in 1982. NBC management almost canceled Stern's contract for fears that the "shock jock" might be too inappropriate. During his years working at NBC he was closely monitored and encouraged to stay away from risqué topics such as sex and religion.
By 1985, Stern had the highest ratings at the station, but he didn't exactly follow the its strict format. Stern and his crew were eventually fired on September 30, 1985 after airing a comedy sketch called "Bestiality Dial-A-Date."
