Joey Boots was a popular American radio personality and a member of the Wack Pack on the 'Howard Stern Show'.
His real name was Joseph Bassolino, and he soared to fame for the catchphrase, 'Baba Booey.' During live news broadcasts across NYC and on the 'Howard Stern Show', he would scream this catchphrase behind the reporters.
Joey Boots was the frequent call-in personality on the 'Howard Stern Show' and eventually became a member of the Wack Packers. He rose to fame in his rights and appeared in several TV shows such as 'Howard Stern On Demand', the TV series 'Newsreaders', a minor role in a film, and a documentary. Also, according to one Howard Stern biography, this radio personality was considered an odd collection of exceptions.
But sadly, on December 23, 2016, when the radio host did not show up for a Friday night live podcast, his fellow Wack Packer entered his Bronx apartment only to find Joey Boots collapsed on his chair. Emotionally shaken fans and colleagues took to social media to express their grief. The Stern show channel producer Brent Hatley also tweeted about the sudden demise of the famous radio host of his show.
Joey Boots had earned a net worth of $1.5 million through his primary profession as a radio host.
Unfortunately, information on how much Joey Boots earned annually, is not available.
Joey Boots stood 5 ft 9 in (175 cm) tall with brown eyes and black hair.
Joey Boots was 49 years old when he expired on December 23, 2016.
Joey Boots came into the world on May 24, 1967, as Joseph Bassolino in The Bronx, New York City, NY, USA, and was raised on Long Island. All his family life details are concealed, so not much information is available regarding his personal life and education credentials.
Sources claim that Joey Boots was in a relationship with Lisa Lampanelli in 1999.
Before fame, Joey Boots served in the military from 1992-1998 and had the rank of corporal. He served in the second Battalion, 67th Armored Division.
Eventually, he became a regular caller to the comedy talk show, Howard Stern, and from 2001-2002, he appeared in two episodes of the show. Subsequently, he became a member of Wack Pack: name was given to non-professional radio guests who appeared on the Howard Stern show.
But the reason for Joey Boots being so famous on the show was his catchline, 'Baba Booey', that he pointed at the Howard Stern Show's show producer, Gary Dell'Abate.
Besides, he also tried his hand at acting and got prominent for his role in the 2012 film, 'Being Flynn', the TV series 'Newsreaders' in 2013, and 'All The Kings Men: A Wack Pack Documentary' in 2017.
In addition, Joey hosted 'The Joey Boots Show' podcast. But, on December 23, 2016, when Joey Boots failed to show up for the podcast, one of his fellow members Erik 'High Pitch' Bleaman, went to his Bronx home apartment, with the help of the building manager, to check on him. But sadly, the radio host was found dead. Howard Stern channel's senior producer posted on Sirius XM about the sudden passing of the prominent radio host on Twitter. He was 49 years old then.
