CBS Atlanta’s Joe Avary sent me this Friday:
Fox 5 reporter Kaitlyn Pratt became engaged to CBS Atlanta photojournalist Joe Avary over the Thanksgiving holiday. They met on the job last December in the Old 4th Ward, surrounded by flashing blue lights and yellow crime scene tape. Soon after that, the couple had their first date at Ria’s Bluebird in Grant Park and fell in love on subsequent dates.
“It’s the toughest question I’ve ever asked,” quipped Avary on popping the question. “I wanted to propose on a romantic moonlight walk in Candler Park, but in light of Monday night’s fatal shooting in Virginia Highland, Kaitlyn wasn’t going anywhere with me after dark.”
