David Lee Roth confirmed he's the man to take over shock jock Howard Stern's top-rated radio show when he appeared on air this morning (25OCT05).

The announcement ends months of speculation about Stern's successor when the DJ takes over a new satellite radio post in the new year (06).

Former VAN HALEN singer Lee Roth, currently working as a paramedic in New York, told Stern, "You've done an extraordinary job, and I hope I can honour it."
