OJ Simpson Phone Prank is Main Reason Why We Remember Peter Jennings

1 month ago

Imagine spending over forty years of your life in the news business, including anchoring ABC World News Tonight for twenty years, yet the thing you are best remembered for is being easily pranked on live TV. Such was the sad yet hilarious fate of Peter Jennings who in 1994 got pranked at the tail end of OJ Simpson's infamous slow speed White Bronco chase. If the absurd voice of the pranker didn't immediately set off alarm bells for any normal person then the final "BABA BOOEY!" would have revealed the caller as a Howard Stern fan. Poor Peter didn't have a clue until Al Michaels cut in to give Jennings a reality check. BABA BOEY!
