Wow. Penny Crone, the love-her-or-hate-her but totally in-your-face local news reporter (she put the crone in "Crone!"), is now a agent at Prudential Douglas Elliman! We were upset when she was fired from WNYW Fox 5 in 2005.

With her 2-pack-of-smokes-and-Scotch voice and fearlessness to get into a scrum, Crone is a New York institution; as the Diary of the Contemporary Dandy put it, "No assignment was beneath [her] dignity." Which is why we might have to go apartment hunting if only to meet her! [Via FishbowlNY who thought Crone's career change was "just some dada stunt"]


Back in 2002, New York interviewed Crone; she thought Bloomberg would quit and said her worst faux-pas was when she called Yogi Berra "Yogi Bear."
