I noticed a spike in page views today regarding my story about Gurvir Dhindsa leaving Fox 5’s “Good Day Atlanta” earlier this year. It took a Google News search for me to figure out why:

When given the opportunity to get more personal about her life in a Fox 5 sanctioned podcast called “I Still Have a Key Card,” D.C. anchor Holly Morris decided to spill the beans about how her former co-anchor hooked up with her then husband.

She didn’t name names but the Washington Post said it was obvious she was referencing Gurvir Dhindsa, who left Fox 5 Atlanta earlier this year without any clear explanation. Dhindsa worked side by side with Morris for several years at the D.C. Fox affiliate as fellow morning co-anchors. For quite awhile, Morris said she had no idea her then husband Tom Sater, now a meteorologist at CNN International in Atlanta, was cheating on her with Dhindsa.

Morris, who has been at the station for 18 years, said people knew about the affair before she did. She has no regrets offering her story via podcast, telling the Post’s Emily Heil: “This was a way to tell the story in its entirety — not chopped up and parts left out.”

Once she found out about the affair, she and Sater divorced. Morris and Dhindsa worked side by side for years even after Morris divorced Sater. Awkward!

Sater and Dhindsa eventually got married. Dhindsa left D.C. in 2011 and came back to “Good Day Atlanta” where she was a host for five years. Sater came to Atlanta freelancing at first but eventually nabbed his CNN job.

I left Dhindsa a message on her personal Facebook page seeking comment. I also left a message with CNN to find out if Sater wanted to say anything. I can’t imagine either would want to.

The podcast is available on iTunes and Google Play.

This is trash - not even worthy of tabloid magazines.  Definitely not news. This is not what I pay a monthly fee for.

Unfortunately, the news media has put people's personal lives on public display without any sense or realization that we all live in glass houses.

I don't understand why talk about it now. What did she get out of it now especially after being divorced for years. What does it do to Gharvir? To me she has embarrased herself because no one knew about it outside of their circle. Now she tells the world she was blind and let another woman take her man.

While this story is disappointing, there is a bit of irony. Our news reporters/casters spend their days reporting others who lives littered with infedelities and other chaos worthy of public notification find their lives now getting the same attention. What is true, maybe we all should try walking in someone else's shoes before we put them on blast.

When a person becomes a high profile and doing good in the public, the media want to see if they can find dirt on them and expose them and destroy their reputation.

I am sure she is telling because she is still hurt. Just move on. Maybe he was not getting attention at home so he got it elsewhere. Most people cheat because of shortfall in gs in their relationship. If you on top of your game then won't get cheated on.
