So, after all the fuss, Bill O’Reilly accepted his Governor’s Award from the Boston/NE chapter of NATAS this weekend while tabloid nemesis Barry Nolan sat quietly and watched.
You’ll recall, Nolan (former anchor of Hard Copy) was “appalled, just appalled” that O’Reilly, (one-time host of Inside Edition, as we were all reminded yesterday) was being honored. Nolan even said he would invite Keith Olbermann to the ceremony just to stir things up.
Tabloid Baby talked with the president of the chapter about how it all went down:
Bill O’Reilly was presented the 2008 Governor’s Award. His speech was about his ties to New England and what he learned in TV here. He was humble and gracious. And he was well received by the audience. Barry Nolan attended, Keith Olbermann did not.
