Just two days following her hilarious, and totally innocent, on-air gaffe, in which she said the Chicago Blackhawks “had such a tremendous amount of sex,” reporter Susannah Collins has been fired by CSN Chicago. The network claims that Collins’ dismissal has nothing to do with her slip of the tongue during the live broadcast, but rather the attention that it brought to her from being featured on various websites and blogs, which shed light on previous sports related shows Collins was involved in, specifically a series of YouTube videos titled Sports Nutz, produced by Middlebrow Media. The videos, co-hosted by Collins, used rather “colorful” language, and sometimes pushed the boundaries of good taste. For example, here’s Collins and her co-host Sam Raddock, orchestrating a “Jew Fantasy Baseball Draft,” which probably offended Jews and Gentiles alike… The problem here is that when CSN Chicago hired Collins in September of 2012, would they have not known about her past with the Sports Nutz series? Even if she wasnt forthcoming during the interview process, it’s not like a quick Google search wouldn’t reveal her past dalliances in “sports journalism,”because the Internet never forgets. So, either CSN Chicago didn’t do their due diligence when hiring Collins, or they are using her recent on-air slip up as an excuse to part ways with the University of Illinois grad, which may actually be a worse reason for firing her than not performing a proper background check on a new employee. Luckily for Collins it seems as if she’s got the support of the public, and with her extensive resumé, endearing personality and stunning looks, she shouldn’t be out of work for too long. And hey, at least her next employer won’t be able to deny not knowing about her past work experience and Internet notoriety.
