NewsRadio ran for 97 episodes, and sadly, the cast had to say goodbye to their beloved castmate Phil Hartman when he was murdered by his wife in May 1998. They honored Hartman and his character, news anchor Bill McNeal, in the season five premiere, “Bill Moves On,” and Root said of the episode, “We read it once on the day that we usually do, on a Monday. We all cried through it and we all decided, unilaterally that we weren’t going to rehearse this show… And it was pretty tearful to shoot, but it was cathartic that we did something within the fictional structure that was real, because we really hurt that he was no longer there.”

Personal Life

Stephen married Laura Joan Hase in 1984, and they welcomed son Cody before divorcing in 1997. Root wed actress Romy Rosemont on December 14, 2008, and they have co-starred on “Fringe,” “Hot in Cleveland,” and “Masters of Sex.” Romy has appeared in more than 150 film and television projects, and she is probably best known for playing Carole Hudson, the mother of Finn Hudson, on the Fox musical series “Glee.” In April 2021, the couple adopted a puppy, Archie, from Tobie’s Small Dog Rescue in Los Angeles.
