Mass. newsman Randy Price marries his long-time partner Mark Steffen
Mass. newsman's nuptials make a point
published Friday, January 5, 2007

Boston television news anchorman Randy Price married his longtime partner, Mark Steffen, on the steps of the Massachusetts statehouse Wednesday, the day after a proposed ban on same-sex marriage advanced in the state legislature.

"Our timing couldn't be better," WHDH-TV's Price told BostonHerald.com, referring to the marriage ban. "But actually it's pure coincidence since (today) is our 30th anniversary."

Price said he and Steffen wanted to swap vows on the capitol steps for "symbolic reasons."

"We're certainly not defiant people, but we believe that we should have the right to marry like anyone else," Price said. "Right now, it's right for us. And we've got as good a track record with vows and commitment as anyone else."

Price, an Air Force veteran and Baton Rouge, La., native, has worked for Boston's NBC affiliate since 1998. The station's Web site calls him "the country's first openly gay newscaster."
