A newsreader in Texas had an unwelcome surprise during her report as the news station accidentally cut to a sex clip mid-program.
The X-rated clip aired during KRIS-TV’s 9pm news broadcast, leaving newsreader Stephania Jimenez completely stunned.
In the clip, a male voice can be heard panting and asking the secondary participant to “f*** it, lick it, smell it”.
The culprits were found to be two KRIS-TV newsroom employees, one of which has been fired, and the other suspended.
The station’s communications news director Paul Alexander has since made a statement apologising for the the lewd content, pinning the issue down to “human error”.
“We learned that a series of technical and human errors lead to the mistake.”
“We have taken swift and appropriate action with the employees who were involved in the broadcast in accordance with our company policies.”
“We have also modified our editing workflow and procedures to ensure that mistakes like this cannot happen again.”
Alexander added that an investigation is also underway.
