    ESPN anchor Sage Steele is suing the network for violating her free-speech rights after she was benched for publicly criticizing her employer's COVID-19 vaccine mandate and former President Barack Obama's decision to call himself black.  Steele, who is bi-racial, claims ESPN temporarily benched her and forced her to issue an apology after her comments. They were made last September on former NFL player Jay Cutler's Uncut podcast, sparked controversy online and in the press. The suit, which was reviewed by The Wall Street Journal, alleged ESPN retaliated against Steele by taking away 'prime assignments' and failing to put and end to bullying and harassment from her colleagues.

    Her post began, "My father has always taught me: Integrity is doing the right thing, even when no one is watching.' I've always lived by it, but in this particular instance, there are a lot of people watching. That's why I feel compelled to relay the truth and explain why you won't be seeing me anymore on WLOX. I am not vaccinated and therefore, I am no longer eligible for employment with Gray Television or any of their stations. Before I go any further, let me make it clear — I'm not here to spark debate over the vaccine. I respect an individual's decision to get vaccinated. I believe one of the greatest things about being an American is enjoying certain rights, including those pertaining to personal health decisions." She added, "Before GrayTV mandated this vaccination policy, I made an informed and prayerful decision not to get the vaccine," and admitted that she'd previously contracted — and successfully beat — a coronavirus infection. "[I]n my opinion, a forced decision to decide between a vaccination and...

Last Thursday, Meggan Gray, 40, signed off from Good Morning Mississippi by saying she wanted 'to take a moment and let you know that I honestly do not know what the future holds for me as far as my career here at WLOX. 'And I just felt that I owed it to you... to take a moment while I had an opportunity to say thank you for allowing me into your homes for the past several years,' she said, visibly choking up as she spoke. 'I've had a wonderful 18 year career here, and I'm very grateful for every moment of it. Thank you so much.'

She then described that the shot was painful, and joked that the nurse intentionally hurt her because she mistook Steele for black conservative political commentator Candace Owens, who she "respects the hell out of."

Lucia is moving to Chicago with her 5-month-old daughter, Vivian, and her husband, Drew, who earned a promotion that prompted the relocation. “I’ve certainly been feeling so many mixed emotions the last few weeks as I have loved my time in my ‘hometown’ and broadcasting the news that matters to our community,” she wrote on Instagram. “Some days I find myself beaming with excitement for the opportunity ahead, other days I am wiping tears away as I think about the family, friends and colleagues we are leaving behind.” A native of Alaska, Lucia graduated from Wayzata High School and the University of Minnesota.
