Reporter fired by Houston Chronicle for stripping lands at San Antonio Express-News



Sarah Tressler, who was fired by Hearst’s Houston Chronicle last March after it was reported that she was moonlighting as a stripper, is back in the newsroom. She’s now at Hearst’s San Antonio Express-News. (Her Twitter feed says she’s a “reporter covering cops, crime and general mayhem.”)

Express-News editor Michael Leary tells Romenesko readers: “The Go Team, to which Sarah is assigned, covers breaking news, primarily for our Website. I have no comment otherwise.” (I asked if she got the job as a part of a settlement with Hearst.)

Tressler writes in an email: “I haven’t any comment; sorry.”

She started the Express-News job last Friday.
