Bob Schimmel
Comedian and frequent guest on The Howard Stern Show, Bob Schimmel, will be remembered tonight in a special memorial broadcast on Howard 101.

Robert Schimmel was involved in a car accident and died on Friday. He was 60 years old.
Bob Schimmel, his 11-year-old son and his 19-year-old daughter, were all traveling in his daughter's car on August 26th when she swerved to avoid an oncoming car, according to reports. Schimmel's daughter is in stable condition and his son was released from the hospital shortly after the accident, reported CNN.

The regular on Stern's show subsequently died Friday night in a Phoenix hospital, according to his spokesman.

To honor Schimmel's passing, Howard Stern announced this morning that a special show in Bob's memory will air tonight, September 7th on Howard 101 at 7pm ET.

Stern spent quite a bit of time talking about the loss of Schimmel, likening it to the death of Sam Kinison. While commenting about the upcoming special, Howard mentioned that this is one of the reasons why satellite radio is such a great medium.

He survives a heart attack, cancer, and then cirrhosis just to die in a car accident...
That sucks!
