CSN Chicago parts ways with Collins
Comcast SportsNet Chicago has parted ways with reporter Susannah Collins, although it wasn't because of a miscue during a live shot that made national headlines, a station executive said in a statement.
During the station's pregame show from the United Center on Tuesday, Collins was doing a shot from outside the Hawks' dressing room when she inadvertently said the Blackhawks had "a tremendous amount of sex" during the regular season. She immediately corrected herself by saying "success," but the error spread rapidly and even made it onto "The Tonight Show."
"Due to circumstances unrelated to her on-air remarks Tuesday night, Susannah Collins and Comcast SportsNet Chicago have parted ways," CSN Chicago vice president and general manager Phil Bedella said in a statement. "We appreciate everything Susannah has contributed to our network over the past year and wish her the best in her future endeavors."
