I was covering the story of the Jet Blue pilot incident in 2012. So I was honored to have her as a guest on The Women’s Eye Radio Show recently to talk about her own personal recovery…: No, I’m usually reporting the news, but this time I was part of the news.It was just a bizarre incident, and the pilot was actually released from the treatment that he had been undergoing for several months.On tonight’s Glenn Beck Program, Glenn sat down with veteran broadcast journalist Laurie Dhue to talk about her decades long struggle with alcoholism and her ongoing recovery.Laurie began working with The Blaze in March as the host of For The Record and she recently joined the team full time.Ailes was ousted by 21st Century Fox, the parent company of Fox News, last summer.O'Reilly - the top-rated attraction on cable news for many years - generated lurid headlines in 2004 for his dispute with Andrea Mackris, who alleged that he had harassed her repeatedly while she was a producer of his program "The O'Reilly Factor." Macris settled her claims for a reported payout of million in 2004.
The settlements, three of which had been previously undisclosed, were in exchange for the women's agreement not to sue the company, which has been beset by allegations of sexual harassment by its co-founder and former chairman, Roger Ailes, the Times found.Laurie had an addiction to alcohol, and when she came clean in 2011, she found herself the new face for recovery.The first time I met Laurie was under very scary circumstances. Before the day started with a breakfast talk by Tim, who wrote “Drunk on Sports,” he autographed books and talked with friends (Jim Lites, Scott Murray and Jon Daniels) and fans like Caron Texas President of the Board Robin Bagwell. On Friday, September 27, Tim and Laurie were the keynote speakers at Caron Cares: A Day of Discovery & Recovery at the Omni Dallas Hotel chaired by Kalita and Ed Blessing with Honorary Chairs Charlotte and Fred Ball.
