Howard Stern's Midtown Studios Fumigated for Bedbugs
By Ben Fractenberg
MIDTOWN — Howard Stern had some unwanted guests on his show — bedbugs.
The shock jock’s Midtown studio was fumigated for the critters over the weekend, WNBC-TV reported Tuesday.
"We received treatments here and supposedly we're 100% bedbug-free," stern said on his Sirius XM radio show Monday morning. "All I know is I'm scratching every minute... I just wish our contract was done and we could get out of here."
Stern also said he showed up to work at 1221 Sixth Avenue in a hazmat suit, though WNBC was unable to verify.
His limo was also reportedly fumigated and Stern said he doubted he would ever ride in it again.
In keeping with his radio personality, the jock didn’t pull any punches when placing blame for the recent epidemic.
"[It’s] because of hippies with their go**amn DDT-inhibition."
