Howard Stern Show Producer Gary Dell’Abate Scores Book Deal

bcbb.jpgHoward Stern Show producer Gary Dell’Abate landed “a mid-6 figure book deal” for his new book, They Call Me Baba Booey. He will co-write the autobiographical book with author Chad Millman, and it is listed in Amazon with a November 2010 release.

According to Deadline New York, the deal was negotiated by Tony Burton from Don Buchwald & Associates’ and Richard Abate from 3 Arts. The report also states that the Random House imprint Spiegel & Grau will publish the book. Dell’Abate (pictured with former President Bill Clinton) has served as a producer on Stern’s show since 1984 and maintains his own site.

Here’s more from Deadline: “I understand that Howard mentioned something about this on his Sirius show this morning — and the book has already jumped to No. 1 on Amazon’s ‘Movers And Shakers’ based on book pre-orders. So let’s see: Howard himself had 3 bestsellers, Robin Quivers had 1, Artie Lange had the most recent and now it’s obvious that Baba Booey will have one as well.”
