WNBC’s Gus Rosendale Invaded By Howard Stern Fan During Live Shot

There is no keeping those Howard Stern uber-fans from getting their few seconds of “fame.” Last night on WNBC’s 11pm news, Gus Rosendale was doing a live shot in front of a Long Island home that exploded.

Rosendale tweeted moments later, “Security! Still hit my roll cue.”

“The last several months from March to June was pretty much a nightmare for me,” Simmons admits. “Because after you’ve worked with your teams and your friends for that long it’s very difficult to come to terms with the fact that it’s not going to be anymore.”

Simmons adds that there was no bitterness as she began the “farewell tour” at WNBC.
