A lot of media coverage has gone to Stephen Colbert’s move to another network.
When NBC’s Frank Blair retired, he returned to his roots in South Carolina. As we were leaving a restaurant, I saw him sitting alone at his table and wanted to see how he could handle a put-down. I stopped and asked him, “Excuse me sir, aren’t you Walter Cronkite?”
He replied “No, I’m Frank Blair. I recently retired from NBC.” He did not know I was kidding.
Other media people with South Carolina ties include Douglas Kiker and Bret Baier, one of the best. I realize Colbert is not real news, but many people think that his program is.
Never miss a local story.
