Joe Gumm to Join WTSP as Morning Anchor

Joe Gumm is joining WTSP, the CBS affiliate in Tampa, as the weekday morning anchor.

The news was announced to WTSP staffers Tuesday  in an internal memo from news director Peter Roghaar, who writes that Gumm will begin on October 15. Gumm revealed the news on Twitter Monday, saying he is “honored to start working with such a great team.”

Gumm was most recently the morning anchor at KOKH, the Fox affiliate in Oklahoma City. Earlier this summer, he issued an on-air apology to Howard Stern for an impromptu remark calling the radio host ugly on KOKH.

Video: Howard Stern Fan Ruins WNYW Live Shot

“We love Howard Stern too but, come on, we have serious stuff going on here,” WNYW morning anchor Greg Kelly said after some guy ruined a live shot from reporter Antwan Lewis, who was covering the aftermath of the NYPD’s Zuccotti Park raid Tuesday morning (video above).

While reporting in lower Manhattan, Lewis was repeatedly interrupted by a guy yelling “Howard Stern’s penis.”  Lewis tried to ignore the man and continue but WNYW eventually conceded defeat, cutting back to the studio.

“Every now and then you get a nut that comes in when you’re trying to do your job,” Lewis told viewers. [h/t Mediaite]
