WCAU reporter Nefertiti Jaquez is out at the NBC owned Philadelphia station.
She hasn’t been seen on air since reporting about a Philadelphia cop who had been shot in the head last Thursday. Her bio has been removed from the station website and a spokesperson confirmed she no longer worked there.
According to TVeyes, last Thursday Jaquez reported live from Temple University Hospital, where the officer had been taken. At 5:34 p.m., she told viewers, three independent sources had confirmed the officer had died.
At 5:42, the station came back from a break and said they had confirmed the officer was in extremely critical condition, then promised to get more information from police.
During a report of the top of the 6:00 p.m., she called him “the injured officer.” The report about his death was never mentioned again.
