Linny Boyette, a Today show superfan who was a fixture on the plaza at Rockefeller Center every morning, died Sunday after suffering a heart attack. The show dedicated a segment to Boyette Monday.
The 71-year-old veteran, who was born in England but lived in the Bronx, woke up every day at 3:30 a.m. to make sure he could secure his spot on the plaza by5:30 a.m., according to NBC. "It makes my day," he told Today in 2010.
However, health problems earlier this year prevented Boyette from attending the show regularly. Last week, a friend of Boyette's told the Today crew that he was gravely ill.
