This evening I saw them -- yes, fantacists -- together. They were leaving work, and they waited together for their shared ride. %0D\
Wragge, for the record, is quite tall, while Quinn is quite short. How does that work in bed?
It works very well, thank you!
Did you see the news last night (Thursday) when Wragge said on air that Lonnie was 50 years old & Katie Couric (visiting the studio) believed it. Lonnie fled the studio in embarrassment.
Lonnie strikes as a VERY hungry, bossy bottom,(DON''T TOUCH THE HAIR!!) which is funny, because Miss Wragge hardly strikes me as a TOP.\
I wonder if they were going to a hotel room to change into drag?
They both live in the West 80s, sharing a ride sounds logical to me.
R5 = frau in denial.
OP, your post is timed at 10:02 pm - yet they were both on the air at 11 pm.\
So how could you have seen them LEAVING work, when they were still working less than an hour later???\
I smell a false post.....
They did a quickie in the back of the cab?
R7: They both work on the local evening until the network news comes on at 6:30. They return for the late-night local news at 11. I doubt they stay at the studio for four and a half hours. That said, I doubt they''re fucking. Although they''re both attractive in an airbrushed sort of way (Chris Wragge actually has a somewhat odd-looking face), is there the slightest evidence that even one of them fucks guys? That''s not an entirely rhetorical question.
While I want Wragge to be gay, has anyone had him in bed? We have many reports of his drag appearances, but what about fucking? He has a gorgeous ass. Just curious.
When Sue and Chuck did early and late evening news they had dinner together almost every night, but never the same cab home.

R7, they were leaving the studio around 7 pm. The talent doesn''t hang out between shows. In a big market, they don''t do any of the writing or other prep work. There''s a meteorologist who writes "Lonnie''s forecast."%0D\
Did they look rumpled at 11 pm?
Chris Wragge can''t pass as a woman when he''s in drag -- pretty, but too tall.%0D\
However, Lonnie Quinn does make a believable and beautiful woman.
And Bill and Liz also go out to dinner between newscasts, but don''t go home. Their contractual hours are 3:30-11:30 or so, with a dinner break. That''s how it is at all stations with a 6 and 11 newscast.%0D\
So this sighting of Chris and Lonnie leaving the studio at 10 is highly suspect.
R14, you cover the news? I clearly stated it was at 7pm. They were leaving the CBS Broadcast Center.
OP post was time-stamped at 10:02 PM, which is why there is so much confusion.
So sue me, I didn''t post it the second I saw it. I didn''t get to the computer until much later.%0D\
This is why people don''t share scoop here -- every time you do, people question your veracity.%0D\
I also heard the rumor that in his later years, Peter Jennings was a crossdresser (under the name, "Jenifer Peters." Did you ever hear that?%0D\
Do you think he crossdressed with david Muir in that room at the Empire Hotel?%0D\
Chris Wragge''s speech is terrible. He swallows his words. How did ever get this job?
The thought of horse-faced David Muir in drag is disturbing. I can only imagine he''d look like a bad drag version of Julia Roberts.
Missed you lots,WABC Insider! Tell us-what is Steve Bartelstein up to since he quit WCBS? Surely he has SOME friends who keep in contact with him...Is he dating? Has he retired completely from the news business?
Actually, I think David Muir would look pretty in drag. He already has that effeminate speech pattern.
While the Jennings/Muir/Empire Hotel room story is pretty common knowledge around ABC (which makes me think it''s really true), I''ve never heard that Peter was into cross-dressing. As I''ve said, we at local don''t mix regularly or hear all the network dirt, but I checked with some people I know at network and they''ve never heard that rumor either; sounds like a fantasy of yours alone, R18.%0D\
As for Bartelstein - he''s not well-remembered around here and it has been quite a while since he overslept and left us. I don''t know of anyone here who still keeps in touch with him - or will admit to doing so, anyway. Maybe someone over at CBS, where he went next. I too would like to know where he is and what he''s up to; last we heard, he was leaving NYC and broadcasting and going somewhere to work with kids (which is a frightening thought). I just hope he got the help he clearly so badly needed.
Ms. Quinn has a new do on today''s newscast. Wragge had a new look when he came back from vacation a couple of weeks ago. Maybe Lonnie was jealous...
Seeing them on CBS Saturday Morning today - it is really hot in NYC and for the last half-hour Wragge shed his coat and tie and unbuttoned 3 buttons on his shirt - no tee shirt underneath, just a nice hairy chest.\
Lonnie kept his tie on and you could see the outline of the tee shirt sleeves, despite the heat.\
Clearly Wragge is the top in this relationship...
I remember when Quinn was engaged to Jensen Buchanan (Sara, OLTL).\
She''s on her 2nd marriage now.
Does DL really believe that Chris and Lonnie are lovers, let alone drag queens?%0D\
I just don''t see it.
Where did you hear that, r28?
I never liked Sara any way.
Anyone watching the queens this morning?
They don''t work on Sundays. Probably off "frolicking" together somewhere, although Lonnie did have his wedding ring on during yesterday''s Early Show.
Lonnie''s Botox or plastic surgery (I cannot pinpoint this) has given him such a creepy, feminine look.\
He was so hot as younger guy and should have grown into a hot daddy.\
He looks plastic and feminine.
He''s trying to look as young as Chris. How old is Lonnie anyway? No birth dates listed on his bios
Anybody got any info on Brett Larson? He used to be on GDNY back in the Ron/Jodi days, vanished for a while, but recently resurfaced on CW11. Always found him strangely hot.
Lonnie Quinn''s nose job is effeminate. Too small and pinched.

Chris is 40, Lonnie almost 47.
Lonnie looks like a LONI! What a girl!\
I call him Lonnie QUIM.\
(Quim means PUSSY/CUNT/BUGINA/MUTTONCLUMP in old British)
Lonnie doesn''t need much help in the way of drag to look like a woman. He''s almost there in guy''s clothes!
Look at the difference between a real journalist Daniel Schorr and these two characters. No gravitas. Nothing special. And, yes, Chris Wragge has a terrible voice and diction.
how much gravitas do you need to interview the WIGGLES?
Why do they need a washed up soap actor to read the weather, when they can get an actual licensed meteorologist?%0D\
Do you hear that Lonnie Quinn?
I just saw Chris Wragge with his girlfriend walking down on Broadway tonight. The girlfriend is pretty and shapely. Her hair is very very blonde.\
Chris and the girl are holding hands and laughing and talking as they crossed 80th street. It seemed like they are having a good time.\
I have seen Chris a couple of times at Equinox on 76th Street. He has a great body and looks younger when he does not have his hair styled for TV. I saw him in the locker room once but too bad he was wrapped up in a towel.
[quote] The girlfriend is pretty and shapely. Her hair is very very blonde.\
Are we sure the blonde girlfriend isn''t Lonnie in drag??
Chris should be seen and not heard.%0D\
Too bad he has to open his mouth.
Chris'' "night out with the girls", but bet he goes back home to Lonnie
Chris and Lonnie are two examples of TV making insignificants rich.%0D\
Neither has any specific talent or personalty -- or voices.
Lonnie is not quite short. I''ve been in his presence more than once. He does not look worked on at all. He''s quite handsome and masculine. You are nuts. Stupid thread.
r 53 is right. %0D\
Lonnie Quinn looks like a (slightly) masculine woman.
R47 Lonnie holds a Federal Aviation Administration certificate in meteorology
so [r54] when were you with him?
But he''s not accredited by the American Meteorology Society (AMS), which is the gold standard for weathermen.
I wonder if either of them have any musical talent? I could SOOO see the 2 of them singing at Feinstein''s, culminating with a crowd pleasing tongue-in-cheek encore of "It''s Raining Men".\
Lonnie: "Humidity''s risinnnnnng".\
Lonnie: "Barometer''s getting loooooooow!"\
Chris: [italic]"DOWN LOW, Lonnie!!"[/italic]
#54, I have fallen in love with you all over again, my little plumpling.\
It''s been five years since Peter Jennings'' death.\
Tonight on World News, David Muir gives a very personal tribute to his "mentor" - will he talk about their sex life??
Lonnie''s birthday is Monday and Chris was off today so he missed the big "surprise" celebration on today''s Early Show. Lonnie must be crushed. Lover''s spat?
Chris Wragge is not gay. He dated a girl named Candace. Some yoga instructor/model. She was a very dishonest person and they broke it off in October of 2010. Lonnie is also not gay. He is married to a very cute Brazilian girl.
LONNIE LONNIE LONNIE SOOOO HOT!
I love Chris and Lonnie. Seems like a lot of people who posted on this are either sick, jealous or just miserable people. I love watching both of them on the news show. They are very professional. Lonnie is the best weatherman, and Chris was just great on the morning show. I will miss him and tune into another show until he comes back.
Why don't the rest of you just get a life, try to be kind to others, and as your punishment try to do three kind things to others every day. You'll be a lot happier!
I wonder if Lonnie Quinn and Chris Wragge still do dragge?
Back in December, I saw Chris Wragge walking down Broadway on the Upper West Side with some girl who looked like a cast member of the Jersey Shore!
They looked like they were together. A year ago, I saw him walking hand in hand with another trashy looking woman, but she was a blonde.
I guess he likes them trashy.
How can people sit behind the computer and make thes remarks. People can be and do what they want . I liked both of the Anchors and it didn"t matter what they did. I will miss them both!!!!!!!!!!!
R67 = Flyover frau.....
LONNIE QUINN AND CHRIS WRAGGE ARE THE BEST NEWS PEOPLE. KEEP THE GOOD WORK
Both are exceptionally handsome guys who earn a decent living as journalists. Give them a break and let them do their job. Enough of the personal slams. Of course, the price is always high for good looking people in the media. It goes with the territory. But these two gentlemen don't deserve the hype that is going around. I have great respect for them both. And why is it a sin that news people are good looking?
Going back to Hurricane Irene, Lonnie still hasn't learned "farther" describes distance. He's still saying "further north."
I'm a woman and believe me Mr Wragge is very much interested in women...believe me... and lonnie just had a babywith his gorgeous wife! Chris and lonnie are good friends.
Chris and Lonnie like women -- who are really each other in drag.
Chris is cuter, Lonnie looks like conan, not cute.
Is Shep Smith straight?

We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
