It’s early 2015, and on WXIA the camera cuts to the news desk after a particularly moving feature. The piece is so poignant, in fact, that Vinnie Politan – a host on the show – seemingly struggles to keep his emotions in check. And as the anchor visibly begins to break down, his colleagues and viewers alike are equally touched. But just what is it about the reported story that has affected him so strongly?
After all, Politan just cannot rein in his reactions to the moving tale; the anchorman is clearly completely overcome. And all of his colleagues are a little emotional too. So what is going on? Because Politan is no rookie; he’s been in the profession for a number of years.
That being said, however, Politan had at first pursued a career in law. You see, he was born Vincent Politan in New Jersey, and his father, Nicholas H. Politan, had served as a judge. So it’s likely that he had an understanding of life working in the legal field from a young age.
