ERIC PATE AND I NEVER FOUGHT
I want to get one thing straight. I never had a fist fight with Eric Pate when I worked at WDFN.Pate and I got into heated arguments during and after shows. We did not see eye to eye on many issues and we both bring passion to the table and do not back down.But I never fought the dude. One day we screamed each other on the air and it carried over to the break. We got in each others face and I wanted to hit him. But I am a professional. You do not settle things with fists in the office.The argument we had was so heated and so loud that people in the office swore we were fighting. I told them we did not throw any blows. That is the honest to God truth.I just think they refused to believe us.And even if we did fight no one saw it.I have been in the media 24 years and I have never gotten into a physical altercation with a fellow journalist.Now have I wanted to bust somebody?Yes.But you know the old saying. I am a lover, not a fighter.
