NBC Boston fired reporter Karen Hensel for not disclosing her relationship with a local police chief, Andrew Sluckis Jr., the Boston Globe reported.
Hensel’s Twitter account appears to be deactivated. iMediaEthics has written to Hensel as well as NBC Boston and Sluckis, the chief for Auburn.
According to MassLive, Hensel sent a memo to co-workers saying, “I did not do any stories while I dated him, and thought self-policing myself was sufficient. I did not disclose the relationship, even though we are not doing any stories together.”
