Re-hire Susannah Collins

Susannah Collins is an extremely informative, personable and engaging TV reporter for the television station Comcast SportsNet Chicago. She has become extremely popular for her work with the NHL team the Chicago Blackhawks. She recently was unceremoniously terminated from her job due seemingly to no other reason but a simple innocent slip of the tongue during an on air report. Many have speculated that the reason for her termination was because of the national attention that she received as a result of the "flub" which brought attention to a series of risque, tongue-in-cheek sports videos that she had done starting in the year 2010 that was sports-centric but tended to shade toward rather dirty humor. These videos existed well before she got the job with CSNC and were part of the reason that she received attention and got her start on television.

Susannah is a superb reporter, and her work with the Blackhawks has been informative and entertaining. She is a breath of fresh air in a field where most of her colleagues have been hired strictly due to their good looks. Susannah, while also beautiful, stands out as a female sports reporter who actually knows what she's talking about and should be re-instated immediately.

      This is a clear overreaction to a harmless, legitimate mistake. I don't believe for one second that CSN knew nothing about her past work before hiring her. That was a transparent excuse and, I feel, unwarranted firing.
