Howard Stern: I Thought I Was 'Going to Die' Amid Cancer Scare
An eye-opening experience. Howard Stern opened up about the scary moment when he was told he likely had cancer — and how it shaped his life today.
Howard Stern knows how to push buttons on The View.
The “king of all media” made a rare appearance on the show Thursday morning to promote his new book of interviews, Howard Stern Comes Again, and from the moment he walked on stage he was ribbing the feuding hosts.
“This is a new cast for me,” Stern, who last appeared on The View in 2012, said, looking around. “Now, who’s gone? Julie Chen Moonves, right?” Joy Behar had to remind him that the wife of disgraced CBS CEO Les Moonves recently stepped down as co-host of their competitor The Talk.
From there, Stern turned serious for a moment to pay tribute to the late Sen. John McCain, telling his daughter Meghan, “Your father, I got to meet him a couple years ago. And I got to thank him for his service and how much he meant to me and how much he gave to this country. I'm really excited to be here with you and I offer my condolences.”
Howard Stern: Being on ‘AGT’ Was the ‘Most Uncomfortable’ I’ve Ever Felt
Howard Stern has had his fair share of life experiences that may seem uncomfortable – but the toughest one was simply being himself and doing a family show. In his new book, Howard Stern Comes Again, the longtime radio host reflects on his time hosting America’s Got Talent. Celebrity Scribes “Throughout my career I had put myself in uncomfortable situations, from dressing in women’s clothing on the Late Show With David Letterman to donning the infamous ass-baring Fartman costume on the MTV Music Video Awards to concealing my face in elaborate makeup to impersonate Michael Jackson on a pay-per-view New Year’s Eve special,” Stern, 65, writes in a new excerpt obtained exclu
In return, Meghan McCain described going on his SiriusXM show as “one of the highlights” of her career and said that her parents found Stern to be a “such a gentleman.”
“For once, I was a gentleman around your father,” Stern joked.

Later in the show, Stern brought up one of the show’s previous controversial hosts Rosie O’Donnell, calling her “one of the best guests I've ever had on my show” and adding, “It was a miracle she was on my show because for years, like an ass, I attacked Rosie, I didn’t really give her a chance.”
'Howard Stern Comes Again' Debuts Atop Amazon Best-Seller List
Howard Stern's new book "Howard Stern Comes Again" debuted at number one on the Amazon best-seller lists on Tuesday, taking the lead from an eclectic group of top titles that also included Michelle Obama's "Becoming," a box set of George R.R. Martin's "A Song of Fire and Ice" series and Dr. Seuss graduation day classic "Oh The Places You'll Go!" The book, Stern's first in more than 20 years, was released by Simon & Schuster and its top placing on Amazon follows the radio host's past success as an author. His earlier books, "Private Parts" and "Miss America," were both bestsellers when they were released in 1993 and 1995 respectively.
When Behar tried to change the subject to Donald Trump, who is also featured in his book, Stern asked, “What’s the matter? You don’t want to talk about Rosie? What happened with Rosie? She’s not on the show anymore.”
He then turned to Whoopi Goldberg and asked for her take on O’Donnell. She replied, “I don’t even think about it.”
As Stern began to heap praise on Hillary Clinton, who he believes could have won in 2016 had she agreed to come on his show, McCain asked if he would “ever entertain a Republican.” He said that he would and has voted for Republicans—at least at the state level—but couldn’t think of any besides former Gov. George Pataki.
“But yes, and listen I feel bad for you, I see you getting yelled at all the time,” Stern told McCain, alluding to her nasty shouting matches with her most left-leaning co-hosts. Turning to Behar, he added, “Give the woman a chance, for God’s sake! You’re chasing her out, she’s in tears, it’s crazy!”
Meghan McCain: ‘I’m So Sorry’ for Spoiling ‘Game of Thrones’ on ‘The View’
Latecomers, look away! Meghan McCain spoiled the Game of Thrones series finale during The View’s “Hot Topics” segment on Monday, May 20. ‘Game of Thrones’ Errors Fans Caught Throughout the Series Whoopi Goldberg started the conversation by calling the conclusion of the eight-season HBO fantasy drama “a giant moment in pop culture.” The EGOT winner, 63, then reminded viewers, “This morning, there are actually counselors you can reach out to if you’re having a hard time.” Goldberg confessed that she abandoned Game of Thrones after 2013’s Red Wedding massacre, while Joy Behar told the studio audience that she has never seen an episode.
Laughing, McCain screamed, “Yeah, be nice, listen to Howard!”
Then, after Sunny Hostin told Stern how “offended” she was by his radio show in the ‘80s—and falsely accused him of “using” the “n-word”—McCain returned the favor. “I’m sorry, but I grew up listening to you,” she said. “I’ve loved the show forever and I was never offended.”

Amy Klobuchar says she has 'deep respect' for McCain family.
Sen. Amy Klobuchar's campaign responded after Meghan McCain asked the 2020 Democratic candidate to keep her father out of presidential politics. "Senator Klobuchar had a long time friendship with Senator McCain, she has defended him against President Trump's attacks in the past, and she has deep respect for his family," Klobuchar's communications director, Tim Hogan, said in a statement Monday night. "While she was simply sharing a memory, she continues to believe that the best stories about Senator McCain are not about the views he had about President Trump: they're about McCain's own valor and heroism.
