Influential: Howard Stern's rash changes in recent years might have been triggered by the King of All Media's desire to achieve the level of success enjoyed by his protege Jimmy Kimmel, his former co-host Artie Lange said. Here, Stern and Kimmel gary dellabate trying to watch football pictured at the shock jock's birthday bash in NYC Martling, 68, told Lange he was going to be the subject of an upcoming documentary, and invited the Beer League star to participate in it. Man with a mic: Lange held little back while discussing Stern on his Artie Quitter podcast The new king?
Favorite Vacation Spot: Chatham, Mass.
A lot of Springsteen, a lot of U2. The last book I have is the Artie Lange book. Do you Twitter? Q: Do you watch sports through devices other than a conventional TV, such as a Blackberry?
But you got to do what you got to do when you got a family. I love NFL. But they offer an amazing package. ESPN is probably the best one for scores and news. Q: Cable or satellite TV at home?
The only reason I have satellite is for the NFL package, which is really worth it. I usually get the baseball package through MLB. Q: How many sporting events do you attend in a year? Last year, it was probably a big year for me.
I probably did about a dozen because there was a lot going on. I went to the first game of the last season of Shea, I went to the last game of the last season of Shea and I went to a bunch of games in between because Shea was closing and I just wanted to go to a lot of games.
I usually get tickets through friends. I usually try not to bother the Mets that much with ticket requests.
Q: Favorite memory of Shea Stadium? Actually, it was very memorable. My dad and I, who just passed away, I got a pair of tickets to Game Six and he was the only one I thought to take.
My second-best memory of Shea was when I threw out the first pitch about five or six years ago. I guess my goal is not to end up as an ESPN highlight. I think the Mets have a legitimate claim to the money.
If it were a different company, nobody would be saying anything. Howard just sort of treated him like a guy, and I think Mickey got it and liked his sense of humor.
I tried hard. I tried like crazy. I called the book company.
I called his manager. Q: Has there ever been any feedback from teams, leagues or agents saying they would never allow their players to appear on the show?
Q: Who is the more famous Adelphi Univ. What was the reaction to that? The more listeners the more it validates us the better it is for me getting guests.
Q: What are your Final Four picks?
