The Stern Show’s visit to the West Coast to appear at Comic-Con was undoubtedly a major success, between live broadcasts of the Wrap Up Show and Geektime. Senior producer Jason Kaplan, who’s attended for years, said this was the best weekend of his life. “To be there working, and producing, and enjoying Comic-Con, it was a dream come true.” Jon Hein told Howard 100 News reporter Lisa G that the autograph signing with him, Gary, JD, Richard and Sal was a huge hit also. “People were really into that. They said it was one of the longest lines at the Con. Clearly the love for Howard is there.”
ZITO BATTLING CANCER
Howard 101 host Chuck Zito announced to his listeners he’s battling prostate cancer. “We did a biopsy. I get a call three days later … I said how could that be, I don’t smoke, I don’t drink. I haven’t taken a drug in my life.” Zito, host of Chuck Zito’s View on Howard 101, said it’s a wake-up call for him. Ronnie the Limo Driver, not one to show emotion often, had well wishes for his good friend and even gave him his advice. “We had a great conversation. Me and him have been friends for years. We have a good relationship and we’re able to talk about stuff like that.”
