WINNETKA AVE, LOS ANGELES: An era is coming to an end. The longest-serving Wack Packer in 'Stern Show' history, Fred "the Elephant Boy" Schreiber, died recently at the age of 64 due to complications from blood clots. Gary Dell'Abate, the show's producer and "Bababooey" to Stern fans, shared the following on Instagram on January 3 morning. He wrote, "R.I.P. to Fred the Elephant Boy. A legendary Wack packer and a nice guy."

Howard remembers Fred warmly on Tuesday, January 3. "One of my faves," he remarked of the Wack Packer, whose distinctive speech had caught his attention since his first contact in 1988. “He was a 30-year-old virgin when we met him, and we helped him get laid for the first time … I thought the show was a great, great bonus for this guy’s life," as reported by Howardstern.com

Stern sent the incomprehensible Fred "the Elephant Boy" to a Billboard Awards presentation in 1994 to accept the award for top broadcaster on his behalf, MNS reported. “I knew Fred was the perfect person,” Howard stated before playing clips from that appearance as well as one from a 1994 event in Cleveland. “He was quite the speech master and he got really f**king excited sometimes … I mean you couldn’t ask for a better hype man.”

Howard eventually recalled Fred for his kindness. “Elephant Boy was a good dude,” he recalled. “He was a good-hearted guy and whenever we asked him to do something he was so thrilled to be a part of the radio show.”

In addition to that MEAWW previously reported, following the Supreme Court's decision to overturn Roe v Wade, radio talk show star Howard Stern has chosen to run for president in 2024. On June 27, he made the announcement on his SiriusXM radio show, 'The Howard Stern Show', which airs on SiriusXM. Only two days later, he announced that Grammy-winning actor Bradley Cooper will be his running mate. 

On the latest episode of his show, the 68-year-old Stern said, “I have some exciting news I’d like to share with you. Early this morning, I was texting back and forth with someone. This person texted me and said, ‘I want to congratulate you’ and ‘You have my vote. It was a very lovely conversation and I said, ‘How would you feel about being my vice president?’ And you know what he said? ‘Done.” Revealing that it’s Cooper, who is a nine-time Oscar nominee, Stern declared, “This guy is going to bring in the female vote like you wouldn’t believe. My vice president… Bradley Cooper.”
