Susannah Collins of Comcast SportsNet Chicago has been let go, but not for her Freudian slip up on April 30th where she said Blackhawks players “had such a tremendous amount of sex” during the regular season, the network claims.
Collins was released because of prior job that featured her in a series of YouTube videos that included sexual innuendo, racial stereotypes, coarse language.
The network released the following statement regarding her release:
“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.”
The network apparently has not heard of Google. These videos are not bootleg copies of a tremendous amount of sex tape. The series of 16 videos, released by Middlebrow Media, includes such titles as “Douchebag Nation” where Susanna and co-host Sam Raddock report outside of Madison Square Garden on “douchebaggery” in college hoops, “Bedtime Reading” which includes quite a bit of sexual innuendo, and “Chocolate Thunder” that includes just about everything you need to get fired from a reporting job.
