Topic One – Direct to my Desk - Most Fascinating People of 2009
Barbara Walters thinks this year’s roster of fascinating people is a little edgier, more current, and less obvious than usual. Of course, the fact that she’s compiling a new list is no surprise. Airing last night on ABC, Barbara Walters Presented her 17th edition of “The 10 Most Fascinating People of the Year.” The surprise #1 was Michelle Obama. Others included Lady Gaga, Adam Lambert, Tyler Perry, Kate Gosselin, Brett Favre, Glenn Beck, Sarah Palin and the Jackson kids. We think the listeners of “Kresta in the Afternoon” may have very different people in mind. We create our own list of the most fascinating people of 2009.
