Former NPR’s Bob Edwards: Quite a Sex Pot

A good rule of thumb to live by: Never let a jealous fiancé anywhere near a computer. Social media is an obvious no-no. Case in point: WRTI news anchor Windsor Johnston, who apparently seethed with jealousy when adoring female fans of her future husband, Sirius XM Radio host and former NPR Host of “Morning Edition”  Bob Edwards, began complimenting him. Windsor, who didn’t turn into a green-eyed monster, claims it was a friend who shot off nasty emails to a woman in Ohio. Phili.com’s Dan Gross had the scoop Wednesday.

One of the missives that Windsor didn’t write: “Are you unaware that Bob Edwards is engaged to be married? If you EVER post on his page again – well, you’d be smarter than you look.” She also didn’t accuse the woman of being in menopause even though the woman is just a few years older than Windsor, who is 34.

Edwards, 64 and obviously sexy, was NPR’s first host of “Morning Edition.” He held the job from 1979 to 2004. Despite high ratings, in 2004 NPR removed Edwards and brought in Steve Inskeep and Renée Montaigne to replace him. Colleagues like Cokie Roberts were none too pleased.
