To Catch A Predator Host Chris Hansen May Have Lost Dateline Anchor Job Due To Scandal!

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├óΓé¼Γäós embroiled in a sleazy sex scandal ├óΓé¼ΓÇ£ 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?
