A number of women that work in TV news and get married, like to keep their maiden name and not use their married name.
It makes sense for a couple of reasons. One, this is the name the person is best known by and second, it helps for security reasons.
Yet, there are some idiots that think it is wrong if a TV newswomen does not take on her husband’s name on air.
The Today Show’s Dylan Dreyer and Sheinelle Jones who both still use their maiden name on air weighed in on this.
A meteorologist is standing up for herself after receiving a letter criticizing her for not using her married name, "I'm sorry you felt the need to write such a malicious note without ever considering I may have thought about this decision very carefully," she said. pic.twitter.com/6Fk0LDBR9z— TODAY (@TODAYshow) March 22, 2019
