TV Anchor Busted On Hot Mic Abusing Woman

( Last week the St. Louis Dispatch posted audio of a local radio host berating a female co-host in a profanity-laced rant.

The off-air incident occurred after Fox 2 anchor Vic Faust finished his morning radio show on 100.7 KFNS. According to the Dispatch, Faust had become frustrated with his co-host Crystal Cooper for mocking his computer abilities on air.

During his tirade, Faust claimed Cooper had a history of attacking him on the air and referred to her as fat, stupid, and nasty, telling her not to come back to the show. Both Faust and Cooper began yelling at each other, with Faust’s attacks growing more vulgar.

Faust confirmed to the Dispatch that the incident took place but declined to comment on it further.

In the audio, Cooper can be heard telling Faust that he was acting immaturely and telling him to “grow up.”

As his tirade grew increasingly profane, someone off mic could be heard urging him to stop. Eventually, a producer is heard giving a 20-second warning and telling the two screaming hosts to “chill.”

That evening, Faust did not appear at his anchor job at Fox 2 KTVI where he has worked since 2015.
