LGBTQ+ News Personalities

Post by Detroiter071196 » Sun Feb 02, 2020 5:08 pm

I really, really hope this doesn't violate the posting or content terms of this forum, but I was wondering outside of the obvious ones like (Hank Winchester), I wonder who considers themselves apart of the LGBTQ+ Community? I was thinking maybe the new reporter on Local 4, Victor Williams? Rudy Harper from Channel 7?

Isn’t Hank Winchester married to a woman as I recall?

No, his life partner is male.

Fox 2's Josh Landon has always "pinged" for me.

Among former Detroiters, there's Mike Huckman and John Klekamp, both formerly of WXYZ. Huckman went on to CNBC and is a PR man today, while Klekamp worked for News 12 New Jersey until 2015. They married in 2004 and live in North Carolina last I heard. I had a major crush on Huckman when he worked at Circle 7 but had no clue he was "family." Huckman did describe enduring some harassment when he worked in Detroit such as someone leaving gay porn on his desk.

Yeah, I seen this thread after it was started, with zero replies.
I left it alone. And quite frankly I was expecting everyone else to also.
The sort of thread that brings out the true trolls.

Is Jennifer Hammond married to a man? She looks like quite the softball catcher.

There were two years ago: Gerald Fitzpatrick and Patrick Fitzgerald.

There was also a part-time reporter, Hugh Janus, that used to be at Circle Seven. He and Ben Dover would work together nightside, whether on the clock or not. They had a give and take relationship. Lots of leap frog, taking turns, sharing, great team!

They would swap stories and everything else!

Wonder whatever happened to them. Someone said they became assistants or aids.

It was great to see them work their way up. They had been going down for years.

Annnnnnd right on cue, lovinlife comes out to play if the theme is gay! He is just obsessed with gays! Your jokes are so funny! Did you learn all that in 5th or 6th grade? :rollin

Oh boomers!

I think we should speculate on who might be heterosexual since everyone's sexuality clearly is our business.

Detroiter071196, unless your intention was to encourage diversity on the airwaves, I suggest you delete this stupid thread. Otherwise, I seriously question you motives.

Jokes?

Nothing funny about it.

Probably best to invite three of your best friends over, sit on your upside down stool, and think about it.
