After taking a brief hiatus last year, Howard and wife Beth Stern spent New Year’s Eve with the time-honored tradition of calling several fans after putting out notices on social media. “We must have called 25 people between her Instagram and my Twitter,” Howard reported Monday morning. “We have the nicest listeners … I spoke to an ex-military guy who was going through a tough time … I called a woman who was going through breast cancer.”

While the majority of the calls went as planned, there were one or two that didn’t go as smoothly. “Most of the people were lovely and had something to say,” he noted before teasing Fred Norris and Stern Show staffer JD Harmeyer. “If I want awkward conversation, I just call Fred … I’ve got Fred and JD for that.”
