Goodbye, Tim Ezell: Our 7 Favorite Moments From FOX2's Goofiest Anchor

Categories: Media

The most trusted face in silly news.
It's true, St. Louis: Tim Ezell is leaving the news business -- for God.

Ezell, the human dose of amphetamine that hosts FOX 2's "AM Show", is hanging up his news anchoring spurs after sixteen years to become a full-time pastor at the The Journey church in south county. He reportedly met with his KTVI bosses Monday -- presumably while hula hooping -- to let them know he wouldn't be renewing his contract. Ezell's last show will be July 18.

It's the end of an era for FOX 2, and 9 a.m. is going to be a much duller hour without Ezell's explosive engery. We're not ready to say goodbye to the goofy gonzo journalist, so we've cobbled together a handful of our favorite (read: ridiculous) Ezell moments.

1. The time Tim Ezell rapped about having a tiny a butt.

Untold millions of Americans suffer from a booty inferiority complex, but Ezell sure as hell worked out his demons in this bonkers parody of "Apple Bottom Jeans." Our favorite part? Ezell (or DJ Nugget) pulling bags of cheese, chips and salsa from the cavernous backside of his "No Bottom Jeans."

2. The time Tim Ezell was rejected as the fifth member of The Wiggles.

For a seemingly wholesome guy, Ezell seems right at home playing Malachai, the disaffected fifth member of the whimsical children's show The Wiggles. All he needs is a trough of of cocaine and a limo full of hookers, and this becomes the greatest VH1 "Behind the Music" episode ever made.

3. The time Tim Ezell took the polar plunge.

Sure, it's a chance to glimpse the slender majesty of Ezell's shirtless bod, but the best part comes at the end, post polar plunge, when a shivering Ezell completely loses volume control -- and possibly his mind. (FOX2's embed code doesn't seem to be working, but you can watch video here.)

I had the pleasure of working with Tim for his entire FOX 2 career. You will never meet a friendlier, happier, more genuine person than Tim. He treated all his co-workers with respect and kindness. If the world was full of Tim Ezell's, we would have very few problems. And by the way, I am a left-wing liberal. I just happen to like nice people.

I didn't give you any "advice". In addition to the doctor, take another run at high school.

Learn to use the reply feature. If your Obama-phone has one. I can't chase you around all night to see your mouth-breathing ad hominems.

I don't cry, Tony Baloney. Crying is for bleeding-hearts who can't take care of themselves and start leaking from the ass whenever anyone else actually makes something of themselves. Cuz they jelly, tough guy.

Awwww. Look at all these smug, shallow, liberal d-bags hating on Tim Ezell. How cute, you phony fucks. Long successful career, plenty of money in his pocket,!moving on to brighter pastures, beloved by thousands in the community. Yeah. What a "loser" he is. Enjoy your part time jobs as baristas and your handful of disgusting pseudo-friends, you foul-smelling socialists. #getahaircut

Fox 2 ..number 1...like the whole team. Sorry to see you leave! Don't try to replace Tim because it just would not be the same. Tim you are doing a far better thing!

Of course they're are haters, but he was the only positive thing to sift through just to get a weather report while eating breakfast.  Certainly not that terribly smug a-hole John Pertzborn.  


Cheers to his future endeavors.

He was so corny. And that's exactly why I liked him. Good luck to him and to hell with all you haters. Keep watching your boring-ass daily dose of depression and week old viral videos.
