WHP News Director David Baer Arrested in Prostitution Sting, Former Reporter Says

WHP news director David Baer was arrested for allegedly soliciting prostitution, former WHP reporter Kirk Wilson confirms to the Patriot News.

Baer, 63, was one of three arrested in a prostitution sting in Swatara Township, Penn., Thursday night. Two women were also arrested on prostitution charges in an “ongoing investigation” led by Swatara Township police and agents from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s Human Trafficking Taskforce, according to the Patriot News.

Wilson, who resigned from the Harrisburg CBS affiliate in May after a contentious meeting with station management, is the first to publicly identify the man involved in the prostitution sting as the station’s news director.

WHP has reported briefly on the arrests but made no mention of Baer’s employment with the station. He has held the news director position since April; as of Sunday afternoon, he remains listed on WHP’s website as the station’s news director.

WHP general manager Arthur Hasson has not responded to TVSpy’s request for comment.
