According to The Mercury News, KTVU newscaster Frank Somerville was taken off the air.

After a disagreement over continued coverage of the Gabby Petito missing and murder case, Somerville, 63, was reportedly taken by Channel 2 management “Suspended indefinitely”.

Petito’s body was discovered earlier this week in Wyoming after being reported missing while on a camping trip with her boyfriend off-road, which escalated the conflict.

The hunt for Petito sparked national media hype, while some journalists, led by MSNBC’s Joy Reid, claimed the coverage was excessive. Reid is one of those who believe that media coverage of Petito’s disappearance is an example of what the late journalist and broadcaster Gwen Ifill called “missing white women syndrome,” in which the media disproportionately focuses on missing white women and girls focus while ignoring similar cases. Missing women of color.

Somerville, the father of a black adoptive daughter, is believed to have shared these ideas and wanted to include a short slogan at the end of a scheduled news broadcast updating the circumstances of the case in received criticism of the unprecedented media coverage of Petito’s story. His request apparently met resistance from KTVU news director Amber Eikel, who claimed the sentence was offensive. The next day, the station reportedly announced Somerville’s “indefinite suspension”.

The news comes just weeks after Somerville was on KTVU after a mysterious nine-week hiatus from the station’s “The Ten O’Clock News” -Radio has returned. Somerville kept mumbling and tripping over his words as he read on a teleprompter on a May 30 news bulletin just before his summer break.
