    From Tom Brokaw to hard-core porn: Phoenix-area TV viewers get a shock

    MESA, Ariz. β€” A cable news program was temporarily replaced with hard-core pornography, shocking viewers who had been watching a health show featuring former NBC News anchor Tom Brokaw.

    The incident Monday night on KPPX-TV was β€œan act of human sabotage” at the Phoenix-area station, said ION Television, which operates the station.

    β€œWe have launched a rigorous investigation, and any implicated employees will face strict disciplinary action and termination,” ION Media Networks spokeswoman Leslie Monreal said in a statement.

    Brenda Schodt, of Chandler, said she was shocked to look up and see graphic sex acts on her television screen.

    β€œMaybe five or 10 minutes into the show there was no volume,” Schodt said. β€œI thought it was the TV, but when I looked up, there were these images.”

    ION Television, based in West Palm Beach, Fla., declined to say whether the pornography aired beyond the Phoenix market.
