If You Ever Worked With Ex-Anchor Charlie Perez, He’s Probably Attacking You In His New Memoir

We knew Charles Perez, the gay former news anchor for Miami’s WPLG, was going to do some trash talking in his new memoir. With Confessions of a Gay Anchorman dropping Tuesday, sneak peeks at Charlie’s angst after his unceremonious removal in 2009 (for being too gay, went the reports) are here. But for now it’s just what he thinks of his old bosses and colleagues at WABC 7 in New York, where he worked for two years. He uses some pages to blast former colleagues, including anchor Sam Champion, the blonde gay now co-hosting Good Morning America, and management: “Bottom Line: WABC was by far the most overstaffed facility I’ve ever worked in; it was the slowest at doing anything. In addition, nearly everyone, including myself, was paid stupid amounts of money.” Can’t wait to see what cattiness he reserves for WPLG
