The Good Day Philadelphia co-host’s suspension comes after Jerrick blurted out an expletive during a live broadcast this week while discussing White House counselor Kellyanne Conway.
Jerrick’s suspension will reportedly last a week, according to industry news site FTVLive. Representatives at Fox have not yet responded to a request for comment.
According to philly.com, the longtime Fox 29 anchor on Tuesday noted that Conway is “good at bulls-” when discussing the White House advisor’s “alternative facts” comments made Sunday to Chuck Todd on Meet the Press. In that interview, Conway defended White House press secretary Sean Spicer’s assertion that the crowd for President Donald Trump’s inauguration was the “largest audience to ever witness an inauguration.”
“We’re sorry about that,” co-host Alex Holley said following Jerrick’s comment.
“I apologize for that,” Jerrick added at the time.
