First Openly Gay News Anchor Put Out to Pasture?

randypriceRandy Price, an anchor at Boston’s WHDH for twelve year and the country’s first openly gay news anchor is leaving, but conflicting accounts between him and the station on to who decided to say, “Goodbye”, leaves us (and others) thinking he was given the old heave-ho.

The Boston Herald reports that while the station said this:

“This is what he wanted to do…It was his decision. He’s been a terrific newscaster and he’s a good friend of mine and all I can do is wish him well.”

Prince’s take was this:

“Obviously, it’s their decision. While I was certainly a little stunned, I understood it very well. Am I disappointed? Yeah.”

Which doesn’t sound much like a guy who made his own decision, does it?
