It’s been decades since Christine Craft first raised the issue of whether female TV anchors and reporters could be allowed to get old.
Now, a La Crosse, Wisconsin TV anchor is raising the stakes: Can they be allowed to be fat?
Jim Romenesko carries the story today of Jennifer Livingston, who got a letter from one of her viewers at WKBT in the city:
