For those who missed the 10pm news on KTVZ last night, you weren't alone. News Manager and Anchor Lee Anderson was conspicuously absent from last night's broadcast along with his co-anchor Molly Hendrickson.
Station Manager Chris Gallu wouldn't comment if the two were being disciplined for off color remarks that aired during a technical snafu that interrupted Wednesday night's American Idol broadcast on the local Fox network.
Gallu said the subject of discipline was a private personnel matter. When asked when viewers would again see Anderson, who inadvertently expounded on his practice of hiring attractive young female reporters, other things, during the accidental broadcast, Gallu said, "I don't know."
"We're aware of what happened following Idol," said Gallu "It's an incident we wish didn't happen and appropriate measures have been taken to make sure it doesn't happen again."
Gallu said the comments that aired don't reflect the general tenor of the newsroom.
