Longtime WNBC anchor Sue Simmons delivered her final newscast on Friday night.

She did not get to make a farewell speech but did make a couple of references to her exit. After a report on Nik Wallenda's high-wire walk  Niagara Falls, Simmons cracked that she felt like she was ready to do that herself.

She was the subject of a a  six-minute montage of Channel 4 highlights interspersed with tributes from friends, colleagues and admirers from Dwight Gooden to Mayor Bloomberg. It included clips of her first night with Scarborough in 1980 and then moved through her interviews with folks like Lena Horne and Jimmy Carter.

As tears welled in Simmons’ eyes, Scarborough called their tenure together “as close as we’re going to get to forever,” and a video of Simmons’ highlights – and some of her lowlights – played.

The video included clips of Simmons’ interviews, on-air F-bomb and her groundhog impressions.

It also included all of her hairstyles through the years as well. Bloomberg also declared Friday to be "Sue Simmons Day" in New York.

WNBC declined to renew Simmons' contract in March.
