Radio personality Fred Norris has a net worth of $16 million and an annual salary of $6 million. Born Fred Leo Nukis before legally changing his name to Norris in 1993, Norris was raised in Manchester Connecticut to Latvian immigrants. Norris experienced a turbulent childhood at the hands of an alcoholic father, and spent much of his youth away from his home as much as possible. It was not until his mother remarried that Norris found stability at home. In 1979, Norris was still a college student when he began working the overnight shifts at Hartford Connecticut based radio station WCCC, where he met Howard Stern. Norris began his long career with Stern when he followed the "shock jock" to WWDC in Washington D.C. and has been part of The Howard Stern show ever since. Primarily in charge of sound effects and sound bytes, Norris also contributes with jokes and other written humor content and cuing commercial breaks, Norris is also the focus of the segment Win Fred's Money where listeners are pit against Norris in a game of broad trivia. He met his wife, Allison, through Dial-A-Date, a segment on The Howard Stern Show back in the early 1990s. Norris has had minor roles in a smattering of films including Cruel Intentions, Everything's Jake, and Lulu on the Bridge. Norris founded the band King Norris, for which he also plays guitar. For a time, a weekly segment entitled The Best of Fred could be heard on the Best of Friday Show.
