Susannah Collins fired after ‘sex’ slip up

Comcast SportsNet reporter Susannah Collins, who’s been covering the Blackhawks, was fired Thursday night. This comes just days after she mistakenly used the word “sex” in place of “success” during a live broadcast outside the team’s locker room.

That blunder earned lots of attention on late-night television and on the Internet where it went viral. Viewers there also found a series of her earlier, more risque work as a co-host of Sports Nutz, a sexually explicit sports talk show.

But in an official statement, Comcast said Collins was let go for “circumstances unrelated to her on-air remarks Tuesday night.”
