    Scott Shannon, who brought top-40 radio back to New York 30 years ago and has since become a morning institution himself, is leaving the WPLJ (95.5 FM) morning show.

    Shannon made the announcement on the air Friday, ending a 23-year run at WPLJ. His partner, Todd Pettengill, will continue solo at the station with the renamed "The Todd Show."

    Shannon, 66, did not announce his future plans except to say he might "drop by" on occasion to have Pettengill play "a Rascals record or two."

    "I'm not retiring," he told The News after the show. "No way. This is just a change.".................

    FM fun and funny Howard always made fun of morning zoo radio.
    Stern always pointed out the fakeness of it, from the terrible phony phone calls, to the use of scripted fake bits purchased from a service.

    Howard is above all that. He has a right to call out all those fake stuff. He is all about Honesty in Radio!

    Yes...
    Howard attacks others for doing things that he wants to do or is doing already.

    Howard will prank Sirius into another 5 year deal.
    Robin will suffocate in a tub of turkey hill and expire.
    Beth will replace Robin.
    65 year old Howard will announce his retirement.
    Upon hearing that Gary will have a stroke.
    DJ Lucas will wheel his dad around to card shows to pay the bills.
    :facepalm:

    The funny thing is I heard on Howard 101 this morning on the way into work the replay of the guy who had sex with dolphins. Not sure if it was Electric Eel entertainment, but listening to it now with the knowledge of the fact that he was a paid actor by Howard it is easy to see how it was clearly fake and everyone in the studio was in on the bit. I never thought the guy was real to begin with, but when I heard it live in 97 I didn't realize Howard and Robin were in on the joke.

    If Beth ended up taking over for Beth, they definitely could get sponsors for honey based companies.
