For God sake, "multimedia journalist"? Give me a break. When these people start these sites, they really have to be careful to avoid overinflating their importance.
He''s got that David Muir look
I do hear a little gay voice creeping out now and again.
wh ocares he looks like a latina dyke
She''s studying Arabic. That sort of says it all. "Studying Arabic" is right behind "being in speech therapy as a kid" for Big Mo Flags.
David Tyler Muir
The majority of weathermen are gay. Chances are good he''s one too.
I hope he honors his heritage and doesn''t pronounce the ''g.''
Adorable. He seems gay to me.
LOL I came across this post as I was searching for info on him being gay as well. LOL
We should have more hurricanes, seeing him wet makes me horny
he looks like a mix between david muir and jfk jr.
Any pics of him in flip flops?
Any pics of his socked feet?
He annunciates quite well. I''d say he''s guilty.
Saw him again today He looks good in red He kinda sounds like David Muir.
R7, is Willard Scott gay???!!!
think i remember his dad from meadowlands sports complex over 13 years ago very nice people remember sammy as well they were partners on the job
janet martin barr
I've heard from my friends at WNBC that yes he is gay.
So is he definitely gay? He is super hot!!
If someone keeps their eye on the house 4's weather guy, Raphi Miranda and his partner own in New Jersey, Ben Aaron and Jonathan (both from Rockland County, NY) are likely to show up to visit.
Major gay face.
He's not up to Richard Simons yet but he's past Jim J Bullock
A friend is an openly gay reporter in the Southeast. Jonathan Vigliotti is among his FB friends. Most of my friend's male TV news connections are also gay. FWIW.
Yup, he's gay.
Shows up at the NLGJA (National Lesbian & Gay Journalists' Assn - NY/NJ chapter) mixers and meetings.
Sometimes with his very good friend (and another NY TV gay reporter), Dan Mannarino of WPIX.
Looks like Zachary Quinto, and of course both are gay...
Apparently in some circles, he's been confirmed gay for a while.
And when I googled his name, the browser automatically filled in the word gay before I even finished typing his name (the true tell-tale sign).
That's the disease Michael Jackson had
"JV is definitely gay: saw him dancing with who appeared to be his bf at a club in the pines."
I also saw him in the pines. His BF is Will McGinn. He friend's with my group. They're super hot together. A LOT of people were talking about them. John can't dance btw. Which makes him sexier in my eyes.
Does anyone know if Jeff Ranieri Chief Meteorologist on the NBC affilioate in the Bay Area is a 'mo? They've been trying to tame him down recently - but he'
s having a hard time hiding his "'mo-ness"
Don't Rain on My Parade
I live in Miami Beach and was friends with Johnathan. He is low key but has no problem going out to hangout with his buds at a gay bar. We used to go toTwist where I still live by. I miss Johnathan but I'm happy for him that his career took him to New York City. Good luck with your TV reporting taking you to bigger and better things for you Johnathan!!
Hah. I Googled his name after seeing him on the street in Soho and found this blog. I guess I'm in good company. I sure hope he's gay and single. He was hot on his bike. By the way, I think he looks like JFK Jr. and that guy from Political Animals.
The new weather guy on NBC's local NYC affiliate, Steve something, who used to be on WPIX in the morning, reminds of Ross Mathews, Jay Leno's correspondent.
Is Steve str8?! I noticed he wears a wedding ring. IIRC, when he was on WPIX, he, and the rest of the reporters, discussed his kids.
The first time I saw him, and heard him, I thought of Ross Mathews!
Jeff Ranieri - BIG QUEEN.
When he and (now out) Dan Kloeffler used to do EARLY TODAY, it was the gayest show on TV.
Steve Villanueva - straight. Hard to believe, I know, but he is.
Vigliotti is a hottie. Would love to see him hook up with fellow NBC hottie Chris Glorioso.
Again, Jon is openly gay. He attends the gay journalists' conventions and is friends with a gay reporter friend of mine who is now in Miami and whose name I will not mention, but he lurks here.
R52, if your friend in Miami is also out, why won't you name him?
We need to feel PRIDE, not SHAME.
Steve Villanueva might be married but in no way is he a straight man.
Watching Raphael Miranda do the hurricane reports.
He is one adorable bottom.
"For God sake, "multimedia journalist"? Give me a break. When these people start these sites, they really have to be careful to avoid overinflating their importance."
Um, what would you have him call himself? He does reporting in multiple medias - that's what a multimedia journalist is. In fact, it's the common term for a modern reporter who works in, you know, multiple medias.
"Again, Jon is openly gay. He attends the gay journalists' conventions and is friends with a gay reporter friend of mine who is now in Miami and whose name I will not mention, but he lurks here."
What conventions and where? I am a journalist and attend all of them and have yet to see him at any. If he is gay, he not open about it. And if the writer of the post above is telling the truth, then I'd like some official sources as I plan to marry Jon (in my dreams), hehe.
OK, it's Ross P. in Miami who is the FB friend.
Oh Ross Palumbo!
I used to hook up with him when he was with CBS Newspath in NYC, before he moved to Miami....
Out journalists? I only recently found out about Steve Kornacki.
He's on WNBC every morning when I get up at 6 for work. Seriously, I get a boner every time I hear his voice. I want to fuck his hairy little ass so bad. What a cute little fucker!!
He's on NOW, covering storm preparations.
I hope to see him soaking wet at some point in the next few days - those khakis he wears should show us the goods when they're soaked.
R62, I doubt that Jon's packing much downstairs, but he does strike me as someone who knows what to do with a big hard cock, as well as being a compliant and appreciative bottom.
r59, Russ Columbo - Didn't he die in a plane crash? Never mind.
Jonathan's all bundled up in a parka (What?) and dark corduroy pants today - no chance of wet khakis, alas...
Jon (or his BF) must be reading DataLounge. LOL
Looking at lovely Jonathan right now. Even dripping wet, he's eminently fuckable!!
Hope the b/f's home feeding him hot soup right now. Gotta keep cute Jonathan well!!
Will McGinn's sliding his hard cock into Jon's hot hairy hole as we speak. I'm sure Jon's feeling much better now.
That must be one tasty hole. Sexy little imp.
Vigliotti looks great in his new glasses
Jonathan has a very hairy wet hole
Vigliotti said on the air that he has been sleeping on his cameraman's couch during the SANDY assignment, because he couldn't get home from Long Island. His exact words were " I need to thank my cameraman for his helping hand."
Yeah, I bet.
"He annunciates quite well."
Is he the angel Gabriel?
I want to know if Jon and his camerman had to share a shower...
I knew I could count on DL to have a thread going on his guy lol
I dont even live in NY and came across this video online. Where has this adorable little Jonathan man been hiding all my life?! He has such a beautiful speaking voice and perfect elocution. I would gladly keep him warm this weekend by fucking him nonstop.
His elocution isn't great (he pronounces the word "godden" instead of "gotten" - he de-dentalizes his Ts and nasalizes too many of his vowels) and his ability to speak extemporaneously is weak (too many uses of the word "themselves" and incorrectly).
But he's a hot little guido.
Terrible enunciation, but who cares? He drives me wild every time I hear his voice. My dick is like Pavlov's dog -- he wakes up at the sound of Vigliotti's voice!!
While I also noticed "themselves", I actually think his ability to speak extemporaneously is impressive. That video had me watching the entire time. It sort of sounded like he discovered the dumpster and immediately went on tv. I I just discovered him this week and he is by far one of the best and most compassionate reporters who covered this storm.
Reminds me of Zachary Quinto...
He would sound professional by pronouncing his name correctly, not saying vig-lee-AH-tee.
That's how NY Italians pronounce the name. In Italy, they would say "veal-yoat-tee," but we're not in Italy, are we? I think we should pronounce people's names the way they want them pronounced.
This guy is hot
i wish someone had dived into his bung hole live on camera!
r83, Jonathan is an Olive Garden Italian who's ashamed of his heritage.
Bullshit, R86. He just pronounces the way his family does and the way all his friends do. Changing it to the more "correct" pronunciation would just be an affectation at this point. He's a much more down-to-earth guy and is not worried about appearing "correct" to assholes who would criticize him for something so insignificant.
I agree r87. r86 and r78 need to leave John alone before I kick their asses.
Good grief [r2] multi-media simply means he works in more than one medium
Broadway superstar manager Jeremy Katz is friends with him!!!
Giada D. already has the market cornered on excruciatingly correct Italian pronunciations.
Hispanic TV reporters have pride, they don't Americanize their names. Carolina Leid and Jeff Pegues of WABC are two examples.
Well, I think you should start a thread devoted to people who pronounce their names in a way you deem correct, and see how many people respond.
Personally, I don't give a shit how he pronounces his name. I still want to fuck his sexy little ass.
r93, a name pronounced in its original language is always correct.
In that case, everything Americans say is mispronounced.
Wonder his hot hairy hole is up to tonight?
I think he's just a mama's boy. He has a fem dialect but I think that's the result of having overbearing women in his life.
His "mama's boy" ass would feel just fine wrapped around my big Polish kielbasa.
fem dialect r97?
He's definitely a hottie. I enjoy watching him on WNBC every morning. He's better than a cup of coffee to perk me up!!
Got himself in big trouble for filming a report about dumpster divers in the East Village after Sandy that turned out to be inaccurate...
I volunteer to spank him until his asscheeks turn red for the dumpster diving report!
Inaccurate how, 101?
Im curious to know what closeted, jealous reporter wrote post #101. I work at a paper and can say that was accurate. Because of that report I found several other similar scenes. Brian Williams even used it. More importantly, is Jonathon gay? He's very approachable in the field.
Hehe! I just saw him on the news and was hoping I'd find a fun site devoted to him. He's been the talk at my office since Sandy. Everyone thinks he should be an anchor. He doesn't seem uptight like a lot of news people.
[quote] He's very approachable in the field.
That's what they say on Fire Island...
I've never been more interested in the Gaza Strip than when he talks about it. LOL. I hope he goes to the war zone. Duz anyone else think he sounds like Matt Lauer?
Sorry guys, but I know Jonathan. Very gay friendly, and a super nice guy, but not gay. He has a girlfriend.
Bitch please. If Jonathan has a girlfriend then I have one too!
JV may have a gurlllll-friend or two, but he's still gay as a pink hairnet.
Straight as an arrow. His girlfriend has no complaints.
I watch him every morning!
His girlfriend's name is Jose.
His boyfriend's name is Will and they have been spotted at Fire Island, as reported here, behaving in a *very* non-heterosexual manner.
Will is a very lucky guy. I would love to sample that hot hairy ass.
I heard a rumor about Mr. Vigliotti. He won't be at NBC for long. My sources tell CBS Network is trying to steal him. CBS can certainly
use some hot new blood!
anything new on the vigliotti front?
Looks mideastern to me.
NY1's John Schiumo, 41 and never married, also has a girlfriend :)
John Schulbmo pings to high heaven and always did. Can't see how he even got on TV with that voice and those looks!
NY1 is full of fugly people who shouldn't be on television. Schumo is one of the better-looking ones on that channel. Bobby Cuza looks like he's been on the losing end of too many fights, and Michael Scotto looks like somebody hit his face with a frying pan. Next to them Vigliotti indeed looks like JFK Jr.
Schumo is from Staten Island, so even if he is gay, he's so far into the closet he thinks he's straight.
Frank DiLella, only out gay at NY1
Isn't Michael Scotto related Rosanna on 5?
The fugliest at NY1 is Roger Clark, on this morning filling-in for Kristen O'Shahgnessy (sp?). He's was referred to as a "schlub" in a newspaper article.
r122 Patrick Pacecho of "On Stage" is out, as is former NY1 host Paul Lombardi.
R125 - Lombardi is long gone from NY1 (over 10 years now) and Pacheco is not a NY1 employee - he's a guest on ON STAGE.
I am the ONLY OUT NY1 ON-AIR PERSONALITY.
Come join us in 2013, why don't you?
