WFAN mid-day host Joe Benigno, made a classic blunder on Monday as he glanced at Caitlyn Jenner for the first time while live.

Joe Benigno, long-time co-host of WFAN 660’s mid-day show with Evan Roberts, is one who usually doesn’t mince words.

He’s painfully passionate about his Jets, Mets, Knicks and Rangers. The man is also passionate about backing those cheaters from New England, but I digress.

On Monday, towards the end of the Joe and Evan Show, Benigno allowed New York City, and the rest of the world for that matter, to hear his initial reaction to the bombshell Vanity Magazine cover that was released.

Oh the pain.

Among other things, Benigno called the newly created Caitlyn “cute.”

“Ooh yeah. OK. Yeah, she’s pretty good,” Benigno said after Roberts showed him new Bruce. “She’s pretty good. She’s pretty good. Her father’s a little messed up but she’s pretty good.”

Evan, being the solid partner he is, did everything in his power not to laugh out loud in hilarity, and actually stopped the comedy minute right there and then.

Had it been another guy (Craig Carton), this story would’ve built a ton more layers.

Classic Benigno.
