   This morning at 9:20 AM, WBZ morning news anchor Gary LaPierre closed his 
microphone for the last time, wrapping up his 42 year run at 1170 Soldiers 
Field Road. It was not a typical Friday in the WBZ studios, as most of the 
morning was devoted to guests calling in to congratulate Gary, such as 
retired WBZ personality Dave Maynard, Governor Romney, and former Governor 
Dukakis, along with recorded greetings from Charles Laquidera, Dale Dorman, 
and Tom Bergeron. Plus, we heard a Jess Cain bit from the past with Cain 
impersonating Mel Brooks poking fun at Gary during one of his WHDH radio 
morning shows.

  Here's a link to an article on the Boston Globe website about Gary 
LaPierre's final day on WBZ:
