[MediaBistro] Two broadcast journos are currently living apart. Like many people, both have had complexities in their personal lives leading up to their own, now troubled union. Will they divorce? Only time will tell. For now, he has been spotted repeatedly staying at an apartment building with another woman rumored to work at the same network. Unfortunately for him, his new neighbors aren’t too thrilled about it.
This always struck us as a really odd pairing. They’ve been living apart for a while, and we’ll let them disclose the identity of the woman with whom he is now living.
BTW, John is on CNN as we’re writing this. Think he’ll include his breakup and the name of his new girlfriend as part of his news broadcast?
Separated: Dana Bash, 40, and John King, 48, after less than four years of marriage, a friend of the CNN stars confirmed to us Tuesday. The veteran political reporters — he’s the anchor of an eponymous prime-time show, she’s senior congressional correspondent — went public with their office romance in summer of 2007 and married on Cape Cod in May 2008. King, a Roman Catholic by birth, converted to Judaism before their wedding. Just last June, she gave birth to their first child, a boy named Jonah. (Both were previously wed; he has two teenagers by his first marriage.) Though still seen together in CNN reports, we’re told they’ve been living apart for the last several months. “They continue to co-parent their young son and to work together with the utmost professionalism,” their friend told us. “They ask that their privacy be respected during this difficult time.” Said another friend: “It’s been a very difficult process getting to this point, one that neither party wanted.”
Pattycakes was first with a correct guess. Well done!
