Monica Parsons retires, Atlanta

For thirty seven years, Monica Pearson, the first African-American to anchor the evening news, has been bringing the news to people's frontrooms via the WSBTV network. in Atlanta And now after thirty four Emmy's Monica has decided to retire. On Monday 18th February 2012 I attended an event at Atlanta's City Council where Monica was honoured by her colleagues. In an event attended by the media and a handful of invited guests, Monica's colleagues bid her farewell. Incidentally, Monica was the woman who beat Oprah to the job of news anchor at WSBTV all those years ago. I bet Oprah is not complaining now thou?.
