GARY, BENJY EXCHANGE BARBS
The tension was high in the Wrap Up Show Friday morning as Stern Show writer Benjy Bronk and Executive Producer Gary Dell’Abate faced off in a very heated argument. Benjy pushing the limits as he cursed at his boss and Gary telling Benjy he has some things to tell him off the air that will be brutally honest. Howard 100 News was outside the Wrap Up Show as the two exited and has Stern staff reaction.
THIS DATE IN HOWARD HISTORY
It was a normal morning commute on Dec. 7, 1994, until Emilio Bonilla threatened to jump off the George Washington Bridge and made a call into the Howard Stern Show. A passerby saw what was happening and tuned into Howard as well. Helen Trimble, that passerby, speaks to Howard 100 News about that fateful day. “I slammed on the brakes, jumped over the bridge, and held him.” Helen remembers Bonilla wasn’t thrilled she stopped. “He wasn’t very happy. He did call me a fat cow.” Howard 100 News has more with Helen on this historic Howard moment.
SOMEDAY MAYBE LISTS
Howard mentioned earlier this week he has a “someday maybe” list – what most people call a bucket list. Howard 100 News has been speaking with Stern staffers to see what’s on their “someday maybe” list. Stern Show producer Will Murray is very certain of what he’d like to do. “I want to travel the world. There’s a whole series of [golf] courses on the eastern coast of Scotland. That would be an awesome trip.” Will, ever the sports enthusiast, has another travel idea too. “I’d love to do one of those cool summer tours where you go to every baseball stadium.” Will says he feels he’s lived a fortunate life and would also like to do some volunteer work and give back.
