Atlanta news anchor responds on-air to being called racial slur

  • Sharon Reed on Atlanta CBS

The anchor said the email "mischaracterized" her views on race, and that "quite the contrary, we think that race is an authentic discussion to have". And that's why, behind the scenes, my colleagues and I, white and black, we decided: "'Hey, let's go for it, right?' because we do try to keep it real here, and I think we do a very good job of it".

A TV news anchor has shut down a racist viewer live on air, and the footage is one of the most satisfying things I've seen in a while.

On Tuesday night all of Atlanta was anxiously waiting out the results of the city's mayoral election, a nail-biter shot through with racial and historical implications.

"I think when arguing with somebody, you have to be careful not to mischaracterize their viewpoint", said Reed.

"That said, if you're going to write me using that word, I don't think it's appropriate for me to censor it for viewers", Reed said. I'm sure Kathy Rae was just thrilled. "But instead I'll let your words, Kathy Rae, speak for themselves", Reed added. "And that's the last word". We're talking about race. NBC10 hired Reed in December 1999, where she worked the station's evening newscasts up until 2002.

Alex Lampley tweeted "Between Keisha Lance-Bottoms as the 60th Mayor of ATL, Sharon Reed's classy clap back at Kathy Rae, & Bey presenting Colin w/ the Muhammad Ali Award, my heart is overflowing w/ joy!"

Reed read the message out loud, then set the record straight. "And here's my response", the Atlanta reporter wrote on her Facebook page.

After NBC10, Reed landed at Ohio's WOIO, a Cleveland-based CBS affiliate.

She also posted Rae's uncensored email, complete with her full name and email address, online and made it her Facebook header. During her time in Philly, however, she was spotted cozying up at New York City's Nobu with none other than Robert De Niro, according to a Daily News report, and was linked romantically to former Sixers star (and current Temple University assistant basketball coach) Aaron McKie as well as former Eagle Donovan McNabb.
