A radio and television personality from The Howard Stern Show...

Robin Quivers

Could you tell us about your charity?
I'm playing for the SEED School of Maryland, and I discovered it by, uh, going back to my hometown because I wanted to give something back to the people who gave me such a good education, and I discovered that they have started this boarding school that is completely tuition-free and open to all the children of Maryland, so I thought that was a great charity to support, and it's a college-preparatory school, it's a seven-year program, and they get kids ready to enter the world and to go to great colleges.

What would winning $1,000,000 mean to your charity?
It means the world. It means the possibility of opening more schools like that, educating more young people, to take part in the American system, and, um, I think education is the root of everything when you're trying to make it in the world.

Are you more or less nervous to play Jeopardy! this time?
I think the nerves are the same every time. It was actually easier to come back the second time because I had lost the first time. Now that you've won once, it makes--it puts a little more pressure on you.

What do you think of your competition?
I think they're both incredibly intelligent, and so I'm worried about both of them.

Did you prepare differently for this appearance than the last time?
No. I just need to get past the buzzer. That seems to be the hardest thing, when you know the answer and you still can't get in, it's very frustrating.

Robin Quivers, often considered Howard Stern's "saner half," has entertained her listeners with the witty repartee and trademark raucous laugh which have helped make The Howard Stern Show the most popular morning radio show in America. A dynamic personality on television as well as on radio, Robin also co-hosts The Howard Stern Radio Show on broadcast television and E! Entertainment cable network’s The Howard Stern Show.

Robin grew up in Baltimore and attended the University of Maryland. Following graduation, she worked as a nurse for a few years and then enlisted in the U.S. Air Force. "I went to see the world and they sent me to Ohio."

When Robin returned to Baltimore, she enrolled in broadcasting school with an eye toward breaking into television. She began her radio career in 1980 as a news anchor-reporter in Carlisle, PA, then had another stint as a consumer affairs reporter for WFBR-AM in Baltimore. During this time, she was contacted by Denise Oliver in Washington, D.C., who wanted to put together a male/female morning team, which was rare at the time. Robin has been working with Howard ever since.

Over the past fifteen years, The Howard Stern Show's success has skyrocketed. It has become a ritual for millions of Americans, and Robin has played a major role in the show's success.

Robin currently resides in Manhattan.
