johnthenewsking.wordpress.com was created after a group of us JK gals over at yahoo (cstkitten, bailcliff, javagirl, katnap, mebz, newssavydiva and yours truly) concluded that John more than deserves a special corner of cyberspace dedicated to his journalism work, his talent and passion for news as well as his overall appeal to those of us who have a great admiration for John, “The News King.”
We were all scratching our heads as to why our favorite CNN reporter did not have a functioning blog in his honor. Believe you me, we googled high and low for such a website, but to no avail. We decided to take the bull by its horns and voted to have one established.
Thus, this site was born. Yes, it is THE original because there is no other website to date that is taking on what we have set out to accomplish here: a fun and interesting place for John King fans to gather, relax and discuss our favorite news king. This blog is still in it’s infancy, so it may appear bare bones at the moment… but I promise to expand it with lots of great information and photos as time progresses.
I took on this task of building and running the blog because I have the desire to see a quality site available for like-minded individuals who will stop by for a visit and contribute to making this an active and lively site.
We do have a private group at yahoo — johnthenewsking — a spinoff of yahoo’s CNN’s John King Fan Club. Feel free to visit johnthenewsking and if you’re interested, please drop us a line to become a member.
In the meantime, we decided to open up this public blog for all to enjoy.
The first topic of discussion we’d like everyone to comment on is John King’s recent Special Investigations Unit Report, Battlefield Breakdown. What were your reactions to the piece? Good or bad, let your thoughts be known here!
Thanks for stopping by and I hope your visit to this website has been enjoyable and informative.
Take care everyone,
