Reports: Nashville sports anchor fired for profane rant, not Prince references

The story of WZTV (Fox 17) Nashville anchor Dan Phillips being fired for his sportscast full of Prince references seemed “too crazy to be true,” and while that’s the story Phillips gave on Facebook for his termination, there’s now growing evidence that other factors may have led to his dismissal.
