The birth of "Jerry Rello"

As for Jerry Rello....It all started when I was filling in with Boomer & Carton sometime during the 2008 summer, while Chris Carlin was the morning anchor.  While doing night updates, following a Mets game, Wayne Hagin threw to me for the update and had no idea who I was.  He mistaked the C's in my name for L's and proceeded to call me Jerry Rello.  The sound bite was found, and when I worked with B&C a few days later, they used the soundbyte to introduce me.  Alas, the nickname was born!
