On the show's FACEBOOK page, ANDERSON's co-host MARK MASON posted, "I lost my best friend tonight. Through the many conversations I have had with DAVE about the potential for this moment, it's still difficult to accept. I can tell you his wonderful wife and loving family were with him, easing his and everyone else's burden, a beautiful sight to behold. Of course, there are lots of tears, including my own. Buddy, buddy, buddy. Rest in Peace."
