My comments are not a reflection on the newsroom as a whole or on any individual employee of the newsroom or this television station.

Anyone who knows me, knows I don't have a biased bone in my body. I was flustered during the interview process and expressed myself poorly.

I regret my comments and apologize to anyone I have offended."
