WSMV Airs Correction to Series of Reports on Missing Tennessee Girl

WSMV, the NBC affiliate in Nashville, has issued a correction to a series of reports on the disappearance of Holly Bobo that have aired over the last month.

The station reviewed the reports after the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation slammed them as “irresponsible and unprofessional journalism.” In the on-air correction (video above), anchor Tom Randles walked back much of the information provided from “Without Warning,” a nonprofit organization assisting the Bobo family with investigating the disappearance.

“Channel 4 regrets not doing a better job of seeking law enforcement reaction to these items,” Randles said. “… We’ve addressed the issues and taken steps to ensure that all of our stories uphold the standard of accuracy and fairness you’ve come to expect.”
