He was inducted into the Radio Hall of Fame (1988) and has a star in the Hollywood Walk of Fame.Born in Rochester, New York, Stern began doing radio play-by-play commentary in 1925, when he was hired by a local station, WHAM, to cover football games. Stern was hired by NBC in 1937 to host The Colgate Sports Newsreel as well as Friday night boxing fights on radio. Stern was also one of the first men to do commentary on televised boxing fights. During his most successful years, Stern engaged in a fierce rivalry with Ted Husing of the CBS Radio Network. They would compete not only for broadcast position during sports and news events, but also for the rights to cover events themselves.
