'Today' Hosts Pay Tribute To Superfan, Linny Boyette

NEW YORK (AP) - The "Today" show is remembering its biggest fan.

Its hosts paid tribute Monday to the late "superfan" Linny Boyette, who for nearly 20 years was on hand in the Rockefeller Center plaza to watch the show in person.

Matt Lauer said he was "part of the show." Al Roker called him "a good luck charm."

Boyette was a familiar face to viewers as the cameras panned the throng that gathers for the NBC morning show outside its studio in New York.

Rain or shine, he would reserve his spot by 5:30 a.m. after taking the subway from home in the Bronx.

The show says Boyette died Sunday at age 71 of complications following a heart attack. Boyette was a military veteran born in England.
