Stern's autobiography, Private Parts, hit store shelves in October 1993. The book was Simon & Schuster's fastest-selling book in its 70-year history. After only a week the book reached the No. 1 spot on The New York Times (NYT) best seller list. The title stayed on the best seller's list for 20 weeks.
In 2004, Stern was suspended from six markets after he featured Rick Salomon on his show and to discuss Paris Hilton's sex tape, which led to $495,000 in fines for then radio giant Clear Channel Communications. Clear Channel was fined by the FCC for each of Stern's 18 violations and the radio chain dropped his show from its stations.
"Mr. Stern's show has created a great liability for us and other broadcasters who air it," Clear Channel Radio CEO John Hogan said in a news release after the dispute. "The Congress and the FCC are even beginning to look at revoking station licenses. That's a risk we're just not willing to take."
