The most conspicuous and embarrassing omission to the Radio Hall of Fame finally will be corrected this fall when Howard Stern takes his place in the Chicago-based shrine to radios all-time greats, Hall Chairman Bruce DuMont tells Time Out Chicago. There wasnt any great controversy involving Howards induction because I think everyone has believed for a long time that he deserved to be inducted. Stern made headlines throughout his more than 35-year career, through his salacious movies such as Private Parts, and bellicose pranks. Perhaps his most notorious controversy came from a 1982 phone call he made to Air Florida a day after one of their planes crashed into D.C.s 14th Street Bridge. Check out this video, and others in the gallery, as 90s star Luke Perry introduces Stern, aka Fartman, at the 1992 MTV Music Awards.
