We see more of the private side of Howard Stern by learning that he’s a chess enthusiast.

I didn’t realize that the domain of the “King of All Media” included the chessboard.

Stern is newly married, so remember this tidbit for when the divorce proceedings inevitably arrive in a few years:

Stern said he admired top players and often went to the Internet Chess Club site to follow the live analysis of big tournament games. His bride, he said, does not share his interest. Recently, while he was following the commentary of Larry Christiansen, an American grandmaster, [wife Beth] Ostrosky walked in. “She was, like, ‘Oh my God, how dull.’ I’m, like, ‘Dull? No, this guy is brilliant.’ ”

If Stern wants brilliance, he should spend time on the Wu-Tang Clan’s WuChess website. Perfect discussion topic for the next time RZA visits the studio.
