Since Scott Van Pelt felt the wratch of Captain Janks last night, as highlighted in today's A.M. Hot Clicks, I figured it would be interesting to get the anchor's reaction. Van Pelt, who revealed he's a Howard Stern fan and grew up listening to the legendary radio host on Washington's D.C. 101 station, said, "Many of the most respected anchors in the business, folks far more respected than me, have been on the wrong end of Howard's loyal following. Here's a little-known fact. I was on the receiving end [of a prank call] back in the day at The Golf Channel. So, I believe this places me in rarified air. How many people have twice on live TV heard the dreaded words 'Howard Stern'? I'm just bummed that my 'Hi, YouTube' comment was not caught on camera, because I knew that's where this moment was headed."
UPDATE, 4:57 p.m.: DVDs are gone. Thanks for playing.
