WPLJ’s ‘Scott and Todd’ Make Inappropriate Comment to Traffic Reporter

This morning on WPLJ/95.5, hosts Scott Shannon and Todd Pettengill had their usual banter with traffic reporter Joe Nolan just like any other day.

However, in the 8 a.m. hour, the veteran team may have pushed the envelope too far.

Shannon and Pettengirl got into a brief discussion with Nolan, who they praised for on-air training of WNYW/Fox 5 morning traffic anchor Ines Rosales.

The tone immediately shifted, despite clearly teasing, referring to Rosales’ “body.”

Moments later, the show hosts went off-color on Nolan, saying he was using Rosales’ “ass as a pillow.”

Shadow Traffic, which employs Rosales and Nolan, had no comment.

FishbowlNY also attempted to reach a spokesman for Scott and Todd in the Morning.
