Mark Simone played "Guess The Singer" Thursday on his show. The audio Mark was played turned out to be none other than Anthony Weiner! The audio comes from a video of Weiner singing "If I Only Had A Brain” from the “Wizard Of Oz” during a political talent show at the Queens Theatre in the Park. Watch and enjoy Anthony Weiner’s singing performance below.
Tuesday evening's Anthony Weiner press conference was supposed to be about the latest sexually explicit photos and messages sent by Weiner, but instead it was WOR 710 news reporter Jeff McKinney's bobbing head that made headlines and even resulted in some parody videos. As Weiner and his wife Huma Abedin addressed the media over the latest sexting scandal, McKinney was becoming an internet sensation on Twitter as "Cubicle Guy."
At the time, no one knew who McKinney was and everyone wanted to find out more about the mystery man who was “pressbombing” Weiner and Abedin. Mark Simone talked with McKinney Wednesday about how he learned he was "Cubicle Guy," why he was standing in the cubicle, and how it feels to be an internet star!

Eliot Spitzer continued his media tour this week for his campaign in the upcoming race for city comptroller. Spitzer resigned as the governor of New York in 2008 amid a prostitution scandal, which has been catapulted back to the top of the news headlines after Spitzer announced he was attempting to get back into politics.
Mark Simone mentioned on WOR 710 Friday how Jake Tapper of CNN (the same network Spitzer hosted a show on following his resignation as governor) grilled Spitzer during a recent interview.
"I want to start back in 2008," Tapper said to begin the interview. "What you did was incredibly reckless and perhaps more importantly, it was very illegal, as you know, a class E felony, paying for sex, a law you signed, bumping it up to class E. When was the last time you broke that law? 2008?" Tapper questioned Spitzer on everything from his tax returns to rumors of Spitzer and his wife living in separate residences.
