You need to replace the diverter spout. grab the spout with anything you have available. pipe wrench, strap wrench, vice grips, maybe stick something in the spout. and unscrew it. If it's been there for a while, this can be difficult. you may destroy the spout in the process but thats ok.
you'll end up with the end of a pipe nipple sticking out of the wall or sometimes the nipple will come out with the spout, leaving a female pipe thread inside the wall.
at home depot buy a new diverter spout, $5 to $25,
A diverter spout is nothing but a regular spout with a shut off valve in it. In a pinch you can just put a pipe cap on the nipple sticking out, and your shower would work fine.
