chris hansen may have lost dateline job due to scandal

It would be a serious shame if that's true!

Last we heard about To Catch A Predator host Chris Hansen, he'd been allegedly cheating on his wife, sending scandalous photos, and sexting with Florida news anchor Kristyn Caddell.

Now, we're hearing that Hansen may have lost a chance at landing an anchor chair position on NBC's Dateline because of the scandal.

Here's what a source had to say about it:

"…For now, plans to promote Chris to the Dateline lead anchor spot have been placed on hold. To put it bluntly, Hansen is a married man with kids who’s embroiled in a sleazy sex scandal – and that rubs against the grain of the family values image NBC is looking to project from its on-air talent."

Here's what a spokesperson for NBC News had to say about it in a statement:

"Ann Curry is the anchor of Dateline. Chris Hansen will continue to anchor when Hansen Files and his other stories air."

Whether or not he was actually up for that position, we'd say he should feel lucky that he's still got a job AT ALL! Things didn't turn out so well for our old friend Anthony Weiner

Do U think Chris Hansen was up for a Dateline anchor position? Do U think the scandal might threaten his current job?

    I would love to go down on Chris Hanson, just suck his private parts until he sprayed his white love juice all over my face as we watched porno.

    The only job this clod is qualified for is a hand job.

  4. 4

    I would imagine that could be the case
    decency, credibility, morality that made us root for him esposing the "bad guys" are no longer attributes he possesses
    and they are needed for this job in my mind
    the show may suffer if he is kept on

    how about giving the job to Lester Shoalts
    he's part of the NBC news family and definitely deserves a bigger role there
    would watch him for sure

    Chris Hansen is lucky he still has a job on NBC. Tiki Barber wasn't as lucky. He was fired from the Today Show for the same behavior.

    Ironic. Chris Hanson hosted perhaps THE most lurid, sleazy, offensive show on all television. A show about entrapment of hapless individuals who had yet to commit a crime. If they had been busted for attempting to make sexual contact with an actual minor - that may have been grounds for arrest. But these were all set ups by the police and there was no victim. Since when are we guilty of what goes on in our minds?
    Was that anyway for a grown man like Hanson to make a living? What goes around - comes around.

    Re: pipobuono – You're comment was well written and I completely agree with everything.

  9. Ofra says – reply to this


    WTF people? Hell the goddam president of the United States didn't even lose his job for blow jobs during work hours in the White House!! And Sloane, I'm pretty sure "Lester Shoalts" is available for the job!! ;)

    This story is fake. They have no hard evidence. All he did was go to dinner… Just because he is Chris Hansen this spread hit the news fast.
