Reid had talked about the challenge on the radio and publicly accepted the service’s offer.
“I’m not desperate to get married,’’ said Jacque Reid, who co-hosts the “New York Live” lifestyle show on WNBC-TV News Channel 4, serves as a correspondent for the nationally syndicated “Tom Joyner Morning Show” on the radio, and is the editor in chief of Singleand Living I’ve met some bad men and dated very bad men,” laughed Reid, a fitness enthusiast and never-married Atlanta, Ga., native who lives in Manhattan with her pet Shih Tzus — a boy named Sugar-Shane and a girl named Zoe.
“I’m happy being single,” said Reid, who declined to give her age.
She said, “I’m excited about” the Web-based matchup service.
