OK. CITY ANCHOR OUT IN SEXTING CONTROVERSY

According to The Lost Ogle blog, it’s 23 years and out for Lance “Danger” West, anchor/reporter for Tribune’s KFOR.

West suddenly stepped down Tuesday afternoon, just hours after a short-lived Twitter account named “JustaGirl35” tagged @KFOR with several screenshots showing salacious private messages that West exchanged with a woman via social media.

The tweets from JustaGirl35 were sent at 10:20am Tuesday.

They were probably online for an hour or two before the account mysteriously disappeared.

By late afternoon, just before 2:00pm, word began to trickle out that West had resigned.
West is owning his screw-up.
“I take full responsibility for a terrible lapse in judgment. I consensually exchanged inappropriate messages with one woman. This did not involve any colleague at KFOR.
Managers at News 4 have been extremely kind and supportive throughout this entire ordeal. It was my decision to resign in hopes of avoiding any additional glare on the station in which I invested a wonderful 23 years
