CNN Anchor: I Am Sad That I’ll Never See Bruce Jenner Again (VIDEO)

June 2, 2015 11:12 a.m.

CNN anchor Carol Costello weighed in with her personal feelings on Tuesday about Caitlyn Jenner’s post-transition debut on the cover of Vanity Fair this week.

Costello picked up on a point made by E! Entertainment correspondent Ken Baker, who noted that some who remember Bruce Jenner as an Olympian in the 1970s will take some time to get her new identity as Caitlyn.

“I grew up in that generation,” Costello said. “I remember the Olympics — right, where Bruce Jenner was?”

“There is a bit of sadness in me that I’ll never see him again,” she continued. “And I’ve heard that from several people.”

CNN’s Brian Stelter pointed out that this was likely a “generational difference,” and that older people had more “complicated feelings” about Jenner’s transition.
