KSAT sports director and anchor Greg Simmons has resigned from the San Antonio ABC affiliate.
The station said he submitted his resignation on Monday. This comes after he was arrested on Friday for suspicion of driving while under the influence.
“For the past 42 years, I have had the honor of working with the best in the business while sharing my passion for sports and our community with all of you,” Simmons said in a statement. “I am overwhelmed and humbled by the love and support from family, friends and viewers in light of recent events. I have resigned from my role as Sports Director at KSAT 12. I am grateful for the opportunity this brings to focus on my health and wellness, and what the future will bring.”
Simmons was reportedly driving about 20 miles an hour and drifting outside the lane of travel when he was pulled over.
He started his career at KSAT in 1980.
