The erstwhile King of All Media ended his four-season run as a judge on NBC’s America’s Got Talent tonight. Take a breath as you digest that. Now, have a look at a farewell video in which Howard Stern ruminates a bit while strolling through Manhattan.
“I felt really fortunate that I could be the guy responsible for bringing the show to New York,” he says in the black-and-white clip. He later says to a man on the street, “You know what — I did the most shocking thing in my career: I was on a family show.” Mixed in with some footage of his AGT moments are some genuinely humble and reflective words from the shock jock himself. No, really. Whether he roasts the show or the video on the next edition of The Howard Stern Show on SiriusXM remains to be seen. Watch the nearly four-minute video above.
