I noticed a spike in page views today regarding my story about Gurvir Dhindsa leaving Fox 5’s “Good Day Atlanta” earlier this year. It took a Google News search for me to figure out why:

When given the opportunity to get more personal about her life in a Fox 5 sanctioned podcast called “I Still Have a Key Card,” D.C. anchor Holly Morris decided to spill the beans about how her former co-anchor hooked up with her then husband.

She didn’t name names but the Washington Post said it was obvious she was referencing Gurvir Dhindsa, who left Fox 5 Atlanta earlier this year without any clear explanation. Dhindsa worked side by side with Morris for several years at the D.C. Fox affiliate as fellow morning co-anchors. For quite awhile, Morris said she had no idea her then husband Tom Sater, now a meteorologist at CNN International in Atlanta, was cheating on her with Dhindsa.

Morris, who has been at the station for 18 years, said people knew about the affair before she did. She has no regrets offering her story via podcast, telling the Post’s Emily Heil: “This was a way to tell the story in its entirety — not chopped up and parts left out.”

Once she found out about the affair, she and Sater divorced. Morris and Dhindsa worked side by side for years even after Morris divorced Sater. Awkward!

Sater and Dhindsa eventually got married. Dhindsa left D.C. in 2011 and came back to “Good Day Atlanta” where she was a host for five years. Sater came to Atlanta freelancing at first but eventually nabbed his CNN job.

I left Dhindsa a message on her personal Facebook page seeking comment. I also left a message with CNN to find out if Sater wanted to say anything. I can’t imagine either would want to.

The podcast is available on iTunes and Google Play.
