I watched Bobbie Battista religiously on CNN Headline News back in the day. You see, it was my job. The weekend producer at WLWT had me, their intern, logging CNN newscasts for any video we could use from CNN on our shows. OMG! Lynne Russell, Lynn Vaughn, Gordon Graham, that anchorman with one leg, Toria, Chuck Roberts! I watched them all but Bobbie was always my favorite!
Many years later, I finally met Bobbie in Los Angeles and we actually pitched a bunch of TV shows to the networks. I love this woman. And seeing this late 1980’s newscast makes me feel like I’m right back in the basement of Channel 5 down there on 9th Street.
