Is There A Gay Anchor Quota On New York Local News?

Seems like it, because Charles Perez is leaving, right after Ron Corning is announced as the new co-anchor for Good Day New York.

NB: Eric Braate will not be joining GDNY, which is a good thing for this piece of the internet which seems to be heavily favoured amongst both the Ron Corning and Eric Braate* rabid fans.

* Who knew an ex-weatherman from Milwaukee television was so well...um..searched?

It's also somewhat of a bad thing, since I can envision heads exploding if Ron Corning, Eric Braate, and Mike Woods were on one programme. Personally, I'd enjoy seeing all the shade being thrown about as karma for the way Jim Castillo was so unceremoniously dumped.

Yes - Mike Woods is definitely GAY. He has a BOYFRIEND.

Mike needs to take a lesson from Sam Champion, who never pretends he is straight. Mike is hot and I love when I see him in Fire Island Pines...

Yes he is Gay. Met him at an event in NYC and asked him. He confirmed it. I wish he'd just come out and do his job like Sam Champion on ABC. He, Ron Corning and Anderson Cooper need to "represent".

Mr. Champion is gay...gay for Mike Woods. The two are gaying it up together, as they are a couple.

Ron Corning too?? Stop it! Mike Woods I kinda figured, but I never woulda guessed Ron was gay...

Regarding Mike Woods, I think it's easier for a white man to come out as opposed to a black man. Black men already have the obvious odd against them so coming out may make being successful more complicated. I'm NOT saying that not coming out is right but i understand why some gay black men do not out themselves in the work place.

About Ron Corning...how the hell could anyone think he was sraight ?I knew he was GAY the first time he appeared on the air.He is very feminine and has mannerisms and expressions and a voice of a true gay guy.(not that there's anything wrong with that!)I also never thought he was handsome.He has an ugly,weird shaped head and his face looks like that of a garden gnome for your lawn !
