Simmons will go down as a lioness for black anchors because few people of color, especially women, were featured in major television markets during the 1980s when she assumed her primetime anchor role for WNBC/Channel 4.

She will leave the desk as the highest paid local news reporter in the United States, according to the New York Post. (The New York Daily News lists her annual salary at $3 million) While Simmons has plenty of professional accolades that define her legacy, she gained national YouTube attention for dropping the f-bomb on air. She apologized later on during the broadcast.

Some insiders at her station feel that Simmons was thrown under the bus, while others felt it is her time to go. The New York Daily News has more:

Insiders at the station are split. Some think a legend has been wronged, and pushed out on the company’s schedule, not hers.

Others say it’s time.

“Sue is beloved,” said one newsroom insider upset with the move. “The ratings have been growing significantly at 11. Why change things by ousting her? It feels like a blow to the kneecap.”

“Shock is a good word,” another said, describing the mood at Ch. 4.

On the other hand, said another: “She’s had a great run and made a ton of bucks … so it’s time to turn over the reins.”
