'I want to be the gay Dan Rather'

The Orlando Sentinel profiles Josh Fountain, who will be anchor of a new show on the Q Television Network. That's Q as in queer.

"Right now, QTN is a subscription channel that's available in only a few major markets, such as New York and San Francisco. But cable companies around the nation, including Central Florida's Bright House Networks, are looking at QTN to see whether they should add it to their lineup."

Says Fountatin, "I want to be the gay Dan Rather, except better-looking."

As he explains it, his new national news show will be "the first 30-minute news about queer news."

Of course, when he worked for a Fox affiliate, the Sentinel reports that "he mostly stayed in the closet when it came to his sexuality."
