A Ch. 7 news producer has been fired after a neighbor shot video of her using a racial slur in a parking dispute in Fort Lauderdale.
The producer, Robin Cross, used the N-word to refer to her neighbor’s son’s girlfriend last week, the video shows. On Monday, WSVN released a statement that Cross is no longer employed at the North Bay Village station.
“After conducting a thorough investigation, WSVN has terminated a 7 News producer who was caught on cellphone video using a racial slur,” said Lily Pardo, a station spokeswoman. “WSVN will not tolerate any kind of discriminatory language or behavior.”
Cross, 49, has worked at WSVN for two years as an investigative producer. She’s also worked as a producer at WPEC-Ch. 12 in West Palm Beach, as an editor at WTVJ-Ch. 6 in Miramar and as an assignment editor at WFOR-Ch. 4 in Doral, according to her Linkedin profile.
