SHARON OSBOURNE is supporting American shock jock HOWARD STERN as he fights
America's censors to stay on air.
New York radio DJ Stern's syndicated daily show was stripped from the air
last month (FEB04) in a number of territories across America after a caller
delivered a racist rant.
And, after years of shocking the US, Stern now fears his controversial
talk show is nearing the end of its run after the outcry following the JANET
JACKSON SUPER BOWL scandal (01FEB04).
But his number one fan, Sharon Osbourne, reassures Stern that he'll never
be taken off air for good.
She says, "Howard has been such a strong supporter for my husband in
"He has supported my husband's music for 20 years on the radio and we
support him. There's a place for everybody in America, that's what America is
"For those people that don't like him, it's so simple - just turn off. It
takes one second. Leave Howard alone."
Stern has played Osbourne's taped support on his morning show.
