Horn told viewers on his facebook page, “So for those of you who don’t know today is “coming out day.” I have been comfortable with my sexual orientation for years. But, I’m officially making it public. Not to stir attention or anything like that; but, to let everyone know it’s okay to be you.”

Horn started at Capitol News Service in May as political reporter. In his role at Capitol News Service, he provides political reports to ten Florida stations including WTVJ in Miami, WFLA in Tampa and WEAR in Pensacola.
