Bishop Eddie Long has returned to the public eye. In his first interview since the sexual misconduct allegations were levied against him, Long spoke to Channel 2 News in Atlanta. Of course the media was told that Long would not answer questions about the allegations, but hearing him speak in public was a media attraction nonetheless.
The event was the Trumpet Awards prayer breakfast at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Atlanta. When answering questions, Long only spoke about hope, the future and other relatively vague, light-hearted issues. The mood appeared to be positive, and Long was given an optimistic reception from those in the audience, as well as Corey “CoCo Brother” Condrey, the radio personality whointroduced Long to the crowd.
