Barrett Tyron, who made headlines over the summer when he was suspended for posting a comment about his employer on Facebook, has joined FOX4 as a techonology reporter and interactive producer, TVSPy reports.
In June, Tyron, then a reporter for the Colorado Springs Gazette, posted a link to a Los Angeles Times story about the sale of Freedom Communications – the Gazette’s owners – to billionaire Jared Kushner. It noted that the new ownership plannned on spinning off smaller papers. The Gazette suspended Tyron after he refused to remove the link.
He was eventually offered reinstatement at the paper, but declined.
Prior to working for the Gazette, he worked for KRDO, an ABC affiliate in Colorado Springs.
