Finally: Reporter Fired For Being a Stripper Lands New Journalism Gig

Posted by on Jan 17, 2013 at 5:50 pm

Our favorite media heroine has finally landed herself a new gig. We guess you could say she landed on her stilettos.

A reporter who was fired last year from the Houston Chronicle after she was outed as a stripper has landed a new journalism job.

Sarah Tressler, 30, was fired in April as a society reporter for the newspaper after failing to inform her supervisors of her after-hours career, which she chronicled on her blog, “Diary of an Angry Stripper.” Tressler’s second job was revealed by Houston Press’ Richard Connelly in a blog posting in March.

She’s now a reporter for the San Antonio Express-News, covering “cops, crime and general mayhem,” according to her Twitter account, which has more than 1,500 followers.

Unfortunately she had to drag the loathsome Gloria Allred into it.

After hiring celebrity attorney Gloria Allred, Tressler sued her former employer’s parent company, the Hearst Corp., which also owns the Express-News, alleging that the firing was unfair.

Considering the sorry state of journalism, her past credentials should serve her well.

“In order to support herself, Sarah started performing as an exotic dancer beginning when she was 22 years old,” Allred said in a statement in May. “Her only other job at that time was as a barista at Starbucks earning $7.25 an hour. She needed the extra money to help pay for college and other expenses.”

A shame she couldn’t find herself a sugar daddy like a lot of the girls are doing nowadays.
Well, at least the guys in the newsroom have something to stimulate them. Heck, maybe even the ladies.

    I might start reading newspapers again if Sarah was reporting … especially dressed as above.

    The Houston Chronicle and the San Antonio Express-News are alsmot identical and share many resources. Quite often in their e-edition in Houston they link the local SA news and scene. Don’t know if its deliberate or not.
