Sports Reporter Fired: Susannah Collins Let Go Over "Sex" Snafu, Controversy

by at . Comments

Comcast SportsNet Chicago reporter Susannah Collins has been fired after making an epic gaffe the other night that led to revelations about her past.

"Due to circumstances unrelated to her on-air remarks Tuesday, Susannah Collins and Comcast SportsNet Chicago have parted ways," CSN Chicago said.

"We appreciate everything that Susannah has contributed to our network over the past year and wish her the best in her future endeavors."  

Tuesday, the Chicago Blackhawks reporter said that the NHL hockey team had a "tremendous amount of sex during the regular season."

She meant to say "success."

The mistake went viral, landing everywhere from news web sites to the Tonight Show, which was expected, but unfortunately for Collins, it didn't end there.

Susannah's slip of the tongue quickly refocused the Internet's attention on a series of raunchy YouTube videos uploaded between 2009 and 2010.

As co-host of Sports Nutz, Collins pushed the boundaries of journalism (and tact) with sexually explicit reports and potentially offensive racial stereotypes.

It was all too much for CSN, which cut Collins loose with the above statement ... and probably sent Barstool Sports scrambling for her contact info.
