Since 2006, he has been a broadcaster on Sirius XM Satellite Radio.

Obituary: Howard Stern's Father Ben Stern Died At The Age Of 99

Howard Stern's father Ben Stren died at the age of 99 from old age. Howard mentioned in an interview with Danspaper, that he passed away recently while discussing one of his paintings. 

"My father recently passed away; he was 99 years old."

"I'm not sure how old the barns were, but I believe that painting them pays tribute to him and to everyone else who is aging and eventually passing away."

Ben and Ray Stern, Howard's parents, have become regulars on the Howard Stern Show on SiriusXM. In one of his episodes, Howard revealed a bit more information about his incredibly complex relationship with her father.

Jerry Seinfeld asserted that no one of his age or that of Stern's parents knew how to relate to children during one of his numerous appearances on The Howard Stern Show.

Howard does, however, truly wish that his father had taken the time to get to know him. Ben was instead preoccupied with his radio profession, the news, and shouting at his kid.

Ben would frequently refer to Howard as a "moron" and shout at him to "Shut up!" as fans of The Howard Stern Show or Howard's smash hit Private Parts know.

There wouldn't be a lot of one-on-one time between the two. Howard really asserts that his father only took him to one sporting event at Shea Stadium. It was a "terrible day," as he puts it.

"My dad was furious with me. He detested the situation. It irked me. He enjoyed watching baseball. Since he was a small lad, he had been going "Howard explained.

Throughout the war, Ben fought in the American Army on Long Island and in California.

Later he held positions as a radio engineer at WHOM in Manhattan and co-owner and manager of Aura Recording Inc., a recording facility in Manhattan where cartoons and advertisements were produced. 

Stern described his older sister Ellen as being "extremely quiet" and the "exact reverse" of himself.


Ben Stern's Net Worth At Death

Ben Stern's son, Howard Stern has an estimated net worth of $650 million as of 2022. Howard rose to prominence after the radio program "The Howard Stern Show," which was nationally syndicated on terrestrial radio from 1986 to 2005.

The 16th of December 2005 saw Howard leave "regular" radio. A $500 million, five-year contract with Sirius Satellite Radio was later inked by him.

On January 9, 2006, his Sirius program debuted. Since then, Howard has made hundreds of millions of dollars on traditional radio in addition to well over $1 billion at Sirius alone.

Howard's 5-year deal with Sirius, allegedly at $120 million year or $600 million in total, was officially announced on December 9, 2020.

Stern really uses the money from these contracts to pay for all show production expenditures, including the wages of celebrities like Robin Quivers and Gary Dell-Abate.

According to Celebritynetworth, Robin and Gary each make $10 million and $4 million a year, respectively. Howard would have around $90 million left over after taxes and agency fees if you conservatively predict $10 to $15 million in additional expenses.

The amount is normally reduced by 10%, or around $80 million, by agents. Howard's net income would be reduced by another nearly half after taxes, leaving him with $40 million annually.

Similarly, his father must have earned $400,000 from his career as a sound engineer.

The Howard Stern Show in 1987, Go-Go Gophers in 1966, and King Leonardo and His Short Subjects in 1960 are among the programs for which Ben is renowned for his work in the sound department.

He spent several years working as a radio engineer as well. Ray Stern was a regular guest on Howard Stern's radio show.
