Stern Film Festival Announces Winner
May 1, 2006

Massachusetts native Scott Masterson brought home the top prize at last week's first annual Howard Stern Film Festival at the Hudson Theater. His five-minute short, Radio Play, portrayed pint-sized versions of Stern and show regulars Robin Quivers and Fred Norris discovering each other via ham radio in 1962 and barreling into an early version of the legendary morning drive program.

"I am always astounded by the level of creativity in the audience," Stern told the New York Post.

Stern's On Demand channel offers all nine films that made the cut into the finals. "The television channel has actually been a huge success for us because the audience is responding in a way they never could before," Stern told the Post. "But this takes it to a whole new level because the fans are now contributing. What I'm hoping for out of all of this is that this guy who won - his film will be viewed by people in the media and the [film] industry, and maybe it'll turn into something for him."

Asked by the Post about his thoughts on longtime radio rivals Opie & Anthony jumping into his CBS Radio grave, a reserved Stern wished them well, but found the idea of working for his former company incomprehensible now that he lives in a less corporately and FCC-regulated world.

"Honestly, I've never been more turned on than I am now," he said. "In a strange way, I've even sort of let go of the whole CBS lawsuit and terrestrial radio. It seems so foreign to me now, I don't even know how I existed. I feel, in a way, like an elder statesman. I conquered everything I wanted to in that medium and I saw myself going backwards - I was really dead in the water creatively, and now I'm completely revived."
