Don Lemon Profile…

The AP’s David Bauder profiles Don Lemon…

“I don’t always agree with you,” the person began, ominously. “But keep it up. I’m not always supposed to agree with you.”

Lemon could think of no sweeter compliment. The 48-year-old news anchor has attracted attention by adding his opinion to stories he’s telling. His bosses are rewarding him with more airtime, and his visibility has increased this spring through coverage of the missing Malaysia Airlines plane and other stories. He frequently hosts the 10 p.m. EDT news hour.

His decision to speak out traces directly to coming out publicly as gay in a memoir published three years ago.
