Karl Schmid is a good-natured, Red Carpet kind of guy, reporting on stories such as the Oscars and the Vanity Fair after-Oscars party for KABC, the local Los Angeles ABC network affiliate. Unbeknownst to most of the city or celebrities he was schmoozing, Schmid had a secret that his colleagues advised him to keep in the closet.

But on March 23, he’d had enough, took to Facebook and at 9:03pm announced that he’s been HIV positive for 10 years.
