Picture of Lilly

Lenslinger and Liljegren
Early readers of this site may remember my lamenting the loss of a certain reporter last December. Well, HE'S BACK!...if only for a day or two. Erik Liljegren, the man with the most misspelled name in the news business, has spent the past year traversing the country as a Fox News Channel correspondent. From the Michael Jackson trial in L.A. to Katrina-ravaged Mississippi, Lilly has flashed his pearly whites in every time-zone in the contiguous U.S. Now, he's back in the Piedmont on 'special assignment' (a phrase that sounds a whole lot sexier when it means something other than counting pick-up trucks on I-40). Last night he took time from his allegedly busy schedule to break bread with a group of ex-colleagues who still don't give him any respect, even though he's the epitome of a class act. More cognac!

There's a reason some of the people in the TV news business are in front of the camera and others are not, huh Slinger?

Stew, even the crazy ladies at the desk at News Corp in New York City had to ask me and E.B. how to spell his name like 6 times. I really enjoyed working with this professional newsman. Gives me flashbax of working with him in King, eating at a Subway and being asked if we were detectives. Me being the smart arse I am says "yeah he's Starskey and I'm Hutch." Good times great oldies! -CMO
