The Internet search engine accompanied the radio personality after his final day on the FM airwaves. From next year, Stern will be hosting a show with satellite radio group Sirius.

Yahoo! captured footage of Stern on a double-decker bus in New York and followed him to a party at the Hard Rock Café in Times Square.
