I Love Sue Simmons!

She's always been charming to me--funny, available, and one of NYC's reliable delights.

I've always loved her cool and knowing way on the air, and the quick banter she's flung with Chuck Scarborough on WNBC/Channel 4 news shows.

And I'm horrified that after more than three decades of turning it out, Sue is not being renewed as of June.

How many other anchors have spotted me at a restaurant and had the waiter send over a Diet Coke?

How many other anchors could I call on her home phone and get quotes about the latest gossip phenomenon?

Even Sue's f-bomb incident was perfectly understandable. She didn't think they were filming!

Anyway, I'm screeching the f-bomb over her dismissal after all these years.

Not fair!

I'm sorry she's leaving, but she was getting a reported $5 million a year, so it's not like she'll be panhandling for nickels. I do wonder if she's going to come out, though, since it's been alleged she's on the labrys team.

Agree, she reps old school NYC, back when NYC was interesting and fun. Too bad most of you missed it.I wanted to know who she swore at so forcefully, she sounded MAD.

It's a done deal, alas. Sue will be gone from the channel as of June.

I can't tell you how sad this news makes me...I think she always reminded me of Susan and Maria from Sesame Street...is there any way we can use the Internet to undue this awful corporate decision?

She's the only real person on TV these days  [damn you Comcast!]...and although I didn't  "meet" her, I was in an elevator with her, Liz Smith and Strichie!...talk about the trifecta!  And they were dishing up a storm! A perfect "fly on the wall" moment.

Now what will be the replacement? Vacuous "hotties" who can't speak w/o a teleprompter...if then...they've already done it with most of the male correspondents...revolving young'uns where only the hipster glasses stay the same.

Although we cry, I'm sure Sue has seen the writing on the wall....can't blame her for not wanting to be a part of it...Chuckie will stay to be the "Cronkite" of the channel...second banana makes good.

I agree that she's the essence of NYC cool. She can never be replaced.
