An off-color social media statement has landed a local media personality in the dog house.
Prominent Milwaukee news anchor Ted Perry has been suspended by the Fox-owned station WITI-TV, sources told the New York Post, following a Facebook post in which the weeknight host seemed to suggest that he wished Republican Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell had died over the weekend rather than beloved “Jeopardy!” host Alex Trebek.
Perry wrote on his personal Facebook account: “2020 takes Alex Trebek but leaves Mitch McConnell?
“Just end already.”
