WSB-TV's Monica Pearson worship: too much? or not nearly enough?

Posted By on Thu, Jul 12, 2012 at 1:00 PM

Did you know Monica keeps a diary of everything she wears? Do you feel happier and better informed now that you know?

The former question — a rhetorical one, really — is posed under the "Nelson's News" section on WSB-TV's homepage today; the Monica in question is, of course, veteran anchor Monica Pearson (formerly Kaufman) who'll end her 37-year-long career at the station on July 25.

Thirty seven years is nothing to scoff at. Pearson has spent the better part of four decades bringing the news into Atlanta's living rooms, and during that time she's become part of the fabric of the city. The community seems genuinely saddened by the prospect of her impending departure.

Still, it's been awfully easy to scoff at WSB's recent enthusiasm for offering us video glimpses into Pearson's life — which have mostly just been glimpses inside her closet ...


There's a video of Monica in her closet showing off her boots. One of her trying on her collection of hats. One of her discussing the aforementioned clothing diary.

Reverence for a 40-year career seems in order, but this seems like a totally dorky way to go about it. Still, I'm looking forward to scoffing at videos for the rest of the month
