Although she's been on WNBC/Channel 4 for more than 30 years, local anchorwoman Sue Simmons will always be best remembered for her angry on-air F-bomb, which has been viewed on YouTube nearly 3 million times. Last night, a live microphone caught another classic slip from Simmons, whose contract with the network will not be renewed next month. "Well, it took a bad hop. It hit me in my breast," she matter-of-factly told her longtime co-host Chuck Scarborough, presumably on the subject of softball or something similar. "Are we on?" he responded. Thankfully yes, although not for much longer. The Internet, though, will cherish the clips forevermore.
