Long-time producer of The Howard Stern Show, Brent Hatley left the show after a series of heated events involving his wife, Katelyn.
Brent Hatley served as the senior producer of The Howard Stern Show for nearly six years. Brent took to Instagram on Wednesday, 11 March 2020, to announce that he would be leaving SiriusXM Radio.
Brent stated, “After six great years, I’ve decided to leave SiriusXM Pandora. I’d like to thank Howard Stern for his kindness and for the opportunity to work on his show and channels on two different occasions. Some of the best work of my career was done there. The staff on-air and behind the scenes at The Howard Stern Channels are people that work and perform at the highest level every single day. It was an honor to work alongside each and every one of them. I will miss them all dearly.”
Although the reason why Brent left the show was not clarified, fans speculated that it was because of a few heated exchanges he had. This pertained to his spouse’s alleged sexual relationship with a porn star named Jackhammer.
Another rumor came to light as fans thought his decision to leave the show had something to do with his health, as he has struggled with migraines from an early age. Brent previously shared on the show, “I’ve gotten these debilitating headaches since I was 14. They’ve been infrequent my whole life, but now they’re up to the point where they’re there every day.”
Brent later revealed that he would be launching his own television channel in April 2020, featuring a handful of “specialty shows” which included his wife, Katelyn. The show airs on the livestreaming service, Twitch. Brent currently has 9 300 followers on his channel. His show, The Brent Hartley Show, airs live every Monday to Friday.
