I’ve known Gayle King for many years (not personally, but I’ve known of her). I was born and raised in Connecticut, specifically around the Hartford area. Gayle was a newscaster on our local CBS station, WFSB in Hartford. I never really thought all that much of her one way or the other. At one point I lived in the same town as her; Glastonbury, Connecticut. I saw her in my local supermarket one day and she actually seemed kind of rude or aloof. But maybe she was just having a bad day.
I saw her on The View this morning and I was impressed. She is intelligent, well spoken, and while somewhat opinionated, it is not to the level that it is annoying. Who among us isn’t opinionated. I guess I should have know that anyone who was a good friend of Oprah’s is probably someone who could be a friend of mine.
I just want to state that I was wrong about Gayle. I’m not indifferent about her; I really like her.
