Ron Corning Gay or Straight? Boyfriend Anthony Wilkinson

Is Ron Corning Gay? Is Ron Corning, co-anchor of WFAA’s Daybreak, gay or straight? He is as gay as Anderson Cooper! And, apparently, he’s been more public about his gayness than the CNN silverfox.

How do we know this? Because Shelly of Ask Shelly on confirmed Ron’s “out of the closetness” in 2011, a year earlier than Anderson’s coming out in 2012. Anyhoo, here’s Shelly answering a question about Ron:

Q: Since hiring Ron Corning, have the Daybreak News ratings fallen or risen? Or has WFAA received alot of flack for hiring him? I’m curious since we live in a very conservative area and since Mr. Corning is openly gay. Thanks.

A: The ratings are going up. No flack as far as I know!

And here’s a follow-up Q from another viewer:

Q: I did not know that Ron Corning was openly gay until I saw another person’s question. Who is his boyfriend? Was he at that More Ron party? I was. I got interviewed by Ron not knowing that he was gay! I have two moms that got married in Connecticut in 2009. I am a huge news freak! I LOVE WFAA!

A: Glad you are a Ron fan, he is awesome. He tells it like it is, which is so refreshing!
