TV reporter Hummel quits ABC6 news

Jim Hummel, an ABC6 news reporter for the past 13 years who is known for the “You Paid for It” investigative segments, resigned yesterday morning, saying he was disturbed by the sensational direction the station has been taking.

Hummel said there was pressure to sensationalize news and use slang –– such as “lowlife” and “thug” to describe defendants –– in an effort to increase ratings for the third-place local news station. 

I love the craziness of the news,” Hummel said yesterday, before going on The Dan Yorke Show on WPRO (630-AM). “But I think there comes a point where you have to take a stand.”

TVNL Comment: Bravo, Mr. Hummel!
