John Melendez net worth and salary: John Melendez is an American television writer and former radio personality who has a net worth of $3 million. Born October 4, 1965 in Massapequa, New York, John Melendezis known for his work as a regular on-air personality on The Howard Stern Show. When Melendez' college roommate, Mitch Fatel, was on the verge of quitting his internship with The Howard Stern Show, Melendez garnered a recommendation from Fatel and was hired—hired that is 'sight unseen' by the always-controversial Howard Stern when Stern heard that Melendez had a stuttering problem. Melendez' main role in the beginning of his stint at The Howard Stern Show was answering the phones and screening callers before they were allowed on the air. This often entailed intentionally putting callers through who were willing to say something outrageous to get a reaction from the show's on-air guest. In relation to Stern's show, Melendez is best known for segments in which Melendez confronted celebrities at red carpet events and in other public arenas. The questions he asked celebs were written by Howard Stern, Fred Norris and Jackie Martling and centered around a given celebrity's private life and the concept was based on the idea that a celebrity would not want to look bad by refusing an interview from a stutterer. Melendez left The Howard Stern Show in 2004 when he was offered the announcer position at The Tonight Show starring Jay Leno, which prompted a rift between Stern and Leno. Melendez went on to become a writer on Leno's Tonight Show where he remained until Leno left the show in February of 2014.
