About Joey Boots 

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.
