Former 9News reporter storyteller Kevin Torres – who may or may not have been fired for a traffic citation that occurred in a station-owned vehicle – has landed a try-out with Fox31, according to The Denver Post’s Joanne Ostrow. From Torres’ Facebook page:

EXCITING NEWS to share: I will be staying in Colorado and joining the amazing news team over at FOX31 and Colorado’s Own Channel 2! To say I’m ecstatic would be an understatement. FOX31 was just named ‘Best Newscast’ by the Colorado Broadcasters Association this past weekend. The legacy both stations hold in this market can’t be matched.

Her lede:

Question: According to journalism ethics, when is it proper for a TV station employee to serve as a spokesperson on a news story the TV station is covering?

Answer: After that employee leaves the media job.

9News entertainment reporter Kirk Montgomery wasn’t offered a full, one-year contract and is leaving for Lansing, Mich.’s WILX. And former 9News sports anchor and Fox31 news anchor Ron Zappolo is returning to 9News in a move that may give Drew Soicher nightmare flashbacks from when he was unceremoniously drummed out of the San Francisco market.

Fox31 and reporter Hendrik Sybrandy may be playing a little defense after 9News fact-checked a recent Fox31 story about an Italian gun manufacturer executive being mistaken for a terrorist and determined the whole thing was a “hoax.
