Brian Collins’ Waco Job Has Gone Boom

From Deadspin

Just two days after Bob Costas used Brian Collins’ signature catch phrase, Busted Coverage published an item pointing out that Collins’ days as a Waco newscaster might be over. We can confirm that Collins’ gig has, indeed, been dynamited.

Collins’ “Meet The Team” biography was taken down at KXXV-TV, the ABC affiliate where he worked, and the link to it is no longer active. Collins’ last report is datelined May 15, and it was about six Texas car dealerships losing their Chrysler franchises.

When we called the station’s newsroom and asked to speak with Collins, we were told that he “no longer works here.” The polite woman who answered our call didn’t know when he had left the station and had no further information about his future plans. (If you know anything more, please send it in to lewpatt@gmail.com.)

Here’s to hoping Collins lands on his feet, and soon. We’re confident that with just a little more publicity, he’ll be looking for a measure of revenge against the New Jersey Nets and to strengthen his playoff hopes before we know it.
