“How do you bring together staffers across America’s largest local TV station owner?” tweeted Ted Nesi, an editor and reporter at WPRI 12 in Rhode Island. “Accidentally blast your sick-call email to the entire company #PrayersForNick.”
Vasos’s colleagues even put up a shrine on his desk, complete with candles and flowers. According to reports, the email thread was later shut down by Nexstar, the parent company of Fox 4.
In an interview with Fox 4, Vasos explained what happened .He had an oral surgery last week that required him to fast and abstain from water for seven hours. He sent a text message to his manager to tell her he wasn’t well, but did not receive a reply.
He said, “So I went to the email, which was a mistake.”
