4:30ET: Openly gay television newsperson Charles Perez, former anchor of WPLG-10 in Miami, Florida, will join me to talk about his recent firing and why he believes it is discriminatory and due to his being too open about his sexual orientation, in a story that has received headlines across the country.
UPDATE: Charles Perez didn't answer the phone when we called at the confirmed time for the interview -- on both his landline and his cell --though we'd spoken to him earlier several times and had confirmed the interview.
UPDATE II: Apparently Perez was called into court and didn't have our studio line; a judge issued a restraining order against his former partner. We will reschedule for Monday.
