Public Apology

With my recent promotion to this position as head news correspondent for The Robin, certain situations have been made public from my past as a result of a thorough history check.

I am speaking specifically to the series of slip-ups while on-air in 2005. While covering features stories for Metro News 1, I said, “You could get [a hot dog] for only a nipple” and “I’m a dirty, dirty girl” and then spanked myself.

I recognize that the frequency of occurrence was too high to claim accidental “slip-ups”. I do admit that the word choice was intentional and I said those on a bet.

I would like to take this opportunity to sincerely apologize to the 14 dedicated viewers of Metro News 1 for my unprofessional and immature behaviors and to thank them for their patience and understanding while I resolve this issue.

And now, my friend who was involved in the bet, Barney Stenson, would like to share a few words with you all:

“Hahahahahahahahaha! You said ‘nipple’!”

Thank you very much, Barney. I appreciate your willingness to publicly vouch for me.

Again, I would like to apologize for my previous immature behaviors and ensure all of you that from this point forward, I pledge the utmost professionalism and promise nothing but my breast work.
