San Antonio Reporter Fired After Inappropriate Video Airs

By Mark Joyella 

J.T. Street, a feature reporter at San Antonio Fox affiliate KABB, has been fired by the station after a story aired including video that was insufficiently blurred.

“I’m honestly grateful that I was able to be on as long as I was,” Street said of his dismissal. “People don’t last in this market, and to be allowed to do something as frivolous as a feature segment, and one that often went against the grain, for nearly five years, was an honor.”

The San Antonio Express News reports the story in question involved video of a local band–and a not-quite-ready-for-morning-news costume. “The lead singer reportedly was wearing a codpiece sporting a couple of prosthetic penises that weren’t sufficiently blurred, and a few seconds of that video made it onto the Fox affiliate’s early morning news Wednesday.”
