‘Today’ Superfan Linny Boyette Dies At 71

“Today” superfan Linny Boyette has died of complications from a heart attack at age 71. He was described as “gravely ill” by Al Roker late last week.

A staple on Rockefeller Plaza, Boyette was known not only be the entire “Today” team of anchors, producers and crew, but by fans as well, many of whom came early to stand next to him on the plaza. Boyette received a full obituary from “Today” this morning, looking back on his 20+ year history with the program, and his past in the U.S. military.
