If you recall, Collins was fired from her job as the Blackhawks sideline reporter for Comcast Sports Net Chicago in May. An unfortunate slip of the tongue put the spotlight on racy videos she previously did for a sports site. Even though Collins never hid from doing those videos–in fact, they helped launch her career–the Blackhawks objected to her presence on the telecasts. Hence, she was gone.
The fallout was considerable, leaving Collins to rebuild her career. According to a CBS Sports Network spokesman, Saturday’s assignment is a one-time deal for now. However, there could be more, as the network hires free lancers on an as-needed basis depending on the number of games they air.
