Cameraman Finds Sole Black Person In Studio Audience
LINCOLN, NE—During Tuesday’s live broadcast of Mornings With Connie & Bill, Channel 8 cameraman Tom Benes managed to find Yolanda Davis, the only African-American in an otherwise all-Caucasian studio audience. “Connie [Dell] and Bill [Jordan] were chatting about Gladys Knight coming to town, and I just felt it would be nice to get a reaction shot from someone of color,” Benes said. “That’s the kind of subtle thing that makes the show more enjoyable for viewers at home.” Benes kept his camera trained on Davis during the entire discussion of the Knight concert and later got a quick shot of her during a brief mention of Halle Berry.

Okay. I warned you. If you must see the little red monkey for yourself, I can not be held responsible for the weeks of your life you might lose…
