Over the last few years I’ve seen a bunch of news reporters in Bethesda. Ok, it’s not Hollywood, but we do get a bunch of TV news people here.
Here’s an incomplete list:
Howard Fineman, Huffington Post reporter and MNSBC regular – the Apple Store
John King, CNN, the Apple Store
Mike Viqueira, MSNBC – Fitness First
David Gregory, Meet the Press, MSNBC – Starbucks and Bethesda Avenue.
Tony Kornheiser, PTI – Bethesda Avenue, going to Landmark movies?
Lisa Sylvester, CNN – Bethesda Avenue
Greta Van Susteren, FOX – Capital Crescent Trail
Chris Matthews, Hardball, MSNBC – Landmark Theaters
Cokie Roberts, NPR – Regal Theaters
Wolf Blitzer, CNN – the Pines of Rome restaurant
George Smith, ESPN – Bethesda Avenue
Michael Wilbon, ESPN – Cafe Deluxe
David DuPree, sportswriter – Bethesda Avenue
Chris Gordon, local TV reporter – Bethesda Avenue
Tim Brandt, sports reporter – Bethesda Avenue
Years ago, not in Bethesda:
George Stephanopoulos, Austin Grill, Glover Park
Tim Russert, Cafe Deluxe, Glover Park
Chick Hernandez, Comcast Sportsnet – Chadwick’s in Chevy Chase
Laura Evans, FOX 5 News – Clyde’s in Chevy Chase
the list is pretty thin – all I can think of is Sandra Bullock, 2000, Atomic Billiards, Cleveland Park, and another bar in D.C. around the same time, and Gary Sinese, Old Ebbitt Grill, 2011.
I guess our celebrities are the news people. Next – sports figures.
