“You know what? I used to say, every day, ‘I am so sick and tired of shaving.’ I had to shave every day, every day, for 33 years,” he explained. “And even before that when I was working on local TV. And I just thought, the first thing I will do when I am not on TV is stop shaving. And everybody hates it. My wife hates it. My son hates it,” he explains. “But it’s interesting. I’ve kind of developed a real creepy look with it that I’m sort of enjoying. I can tell that people are off-put by it.
