Debbie Denmon, WFAA Anchor Fired After Suing Station, is Now Craig Watkins' Spokesperson
When Debbie Denmon parted ways with WFAA last month, it wasn't on the best of terms. The anchor/reporter had sued the station for discrimination after being passed over for a promotion in favor Shelly Slater, a thinner, white reporter. A few months after she lost, the station opted not to renew her contract.
Denmon, however, has landed on her feet. District Attorney Craig Watkins' office announced today that she will replace Jamille Bradfield as spokeswoman.
She officially starts on September 10. I'm guessing this means she won't be taking that part-time slot on The Texas Daily.
