One of the stalwarts of NBC’s “Today” has been Linny Boyette. Boyette is the show’s resident “superfan,” showing up every morning, and garnering attention from its anchors. He may have popped over to “Good Morning America” during the 2012 Olympics, but even when a health scare put him out of commission earlier this year, he always seemed to return to “Today.”
Now, however, comes word that Boyette is “gravely ill,” according to Al Roker:
Our good friend Linny, always at our @TODAYshow window, is gravely ill. Thoughts and prayers go out to him and his family
