What did she say live on air?

Ivory Hecker was supposed to be commenting on the weather on Fox 26’s live broadcast this morning.

However, instead, she directly addressed the viewer and made some accusatory comments about her employer. She claimed Fox Corp had been “muzzling” her, though she didn’t say in regards to what exactly. She added that the network were allegedly trying to “keep certain information from” the viewer.

These claims have not yet been substantiated and Fox 26 Houston have not released a comment on Hecker’s allegations.

Many people are speculating that these comments may have got Ivory Hecker fired. However, there has been no confirmation that her contract has been terminated and her Twitter bio states that she continues to be a reporter for Fox 26.
