New Hampshire in the Morning

M – As our WZID crew was preparing to set up our broadcast gear Monday morning for our Tuesday 6 a.m. N.H. Primary broadcast, former CBS News reporter and anchor, Dan Rather, sat down for breakfast at the table we’d be using  the next morning for our live remote. While Pete and Shannon connected and tested our digital equipment off to the side, it was interesting to watch so many people approach Rather, who was sitting, presumable with staff members of his show on HDNet. Even though he was at a breakfast meeting, he graciously stood up, shook hands and chatted with fans who recognized him at the Cafe near the lobby of the Radisson-Center of New Hampshire.

“I always enjoy having my picture taken with such a good-looking woman,” he said, obliging an 80-something woman (he’s 80). “Thank you for  your service to our country,” I heard him say to a marine seated at the next table.

It’s nice to see a celebrity news personality, who must get bugged all the time in public, treat every admirer with charm and sincerity. Makes me glad I watched CBS for the many years he succeded another gentleman, Walter Cronkite. And that’s the way it was, this morning, January 9, 2012.
