Sal is most well known for his unique comedy style that is most often seen in his prank phone calls with his best friend, Richard Christy. Often called "Phony phone calls," these prank calls are a real gem in the Stern brand.
After high school, he briefly attended community college with the intent of becoming a radiologist. After several other short lived careers, he found his first true calling as a stock broker. He worked exclusively in boiler room operations and sold worthless penny stocks to widows and orphans. Although several of his employers were convicted of securities fraud, Sal always skated. It is rumored that he was able to avoid jail time by agreeing to testify against his employers.
While working as a stock broker, he found his second true calling: making prank phone calls to the Howard Stern Show.
