Reporter and “colorful character” Deborah Sherman’s contract has not been renewed at KUSA, the Denver Post reports.
Sherman is “said to have great contacts but not the easiest professional temperament,” Denver Post TV critic Joanne Ostrow said. Ostrow also called Sherman a “colorful character when she was part of the investigative team at Channel 9.”
It’s possible, Ostrow says, that Sherman’s dismissal is related to the story she became involved in after meeting a doctor on a swinger site. That encounter “resulted in her winning a permanent restraining order against him, his arrest on drug charges, his firing and loss of a medical license, and her being catapulted to the center of a widely reported, rather unseemly news story.”
KUSA could have been trying to distance itself from Sherman since.
