CSN Reporter fired after ‘tremendous amount of sex” slip on TV


CSN Chicago reporter Susannah Collins has been fired after an on air slip. Collins accidentally said on live TV that the Blackhawks had “a tremendous amount of sex” during the NHL season.

Collins meant to say that the Blackhawks had success and quickly corrected herself but it was not enough to save her job.

“Due to circumstances unrelated to her on-air remarks Tuesday night, Susannah Collins and Comcast SportsNet Chicago have parted ways,” Phil Bedella, vice president and general manager of CSN Chicago said in a statement. “We appreciate everything Susannah has contributed to our network over the past year and wish her the best in her future endeavors.”

According to the Chicago Tribune:

the mistake put a spotlight on Collins, and that quickly refocused attention on a series of  raunchy YouTube videos uploaded between 2009 and 2010.  As co-host of Sports Nutz, Collins pushed the boundaries of sports journalism — and good taste — with sexually explicit reports and potentially offensive racial stereotypes.

Collins began reporting for CSN in September of 2012.

Here is one of the questionable YouTube Videos.
