Scandalous Wedding Column Puts TV News Reporter in the Headlines

Last week, NBC’s “Today” show and CBS’ “Early Show” produced stories and segments on the criminal case against local TV news personality, and “Good Morning America” fill-in, Heidi Jones. We wondered if NBC and CBS were taking a competitive swipe at a strong competitor in the New York market.

Well, another local TV news reporter is finding herself in the headlines. Carol Anne Riddell is a former reporter/anchor at WNBC. She was one of several WNBC on-air talent who lost their jobs last year.

This past weekend The New York Times featured Riddell and her husband John Partilla in their “Vows” wedding column. As our (new and improved) sister site TVSpy reports,

What makes the NYT piece on Riddell’s marriage unique is that it tells the story of how she and Partilla broke up their respective marriages to be together.

And this morning, “Today” produced a story on it. TVSpy has the video.
