April Moss lost her job after halting her weather report to say she's talking to Project Veritas.
Her employer told Insider she objected to its policies on COVID-19 testing and mask-wearing.
Last week, a different reporter interrupted a broadcast to accuse her network of muzzling her.
The weekend weather anchor April Moss is no longer employed at CBS 62 Detroit after she interrupted her live broadcast on Sunday to announce that she was going to be a source for Project Veritas.
"April Moss objected to WWJ-TV's policies regarding COVID-19 testing and wearing masks inside our station, which are based on CDC, state, and local guidelines," a spokesman from CBS 62 Detroit told Insider.
The spokesman added: "Any suggestion that she was in any way a victim of 'discrimination' due to her concerns about these policies is completely false. In fact, we allowed April to perform her weather anchor duties from home as we explored her concerns."
He went on to say the station respected and supported employees' freedom to have their own opinions but would not allow them "to use our station news broadcasts as a platform for sharing personal views."
"Ms. Moss is no longer with our station," the person said.
Moss stopped in the middle of her weather forecast to announce she would be sitting down this week with Project Veritas to "discuss the discrimination that CBS is enforcing on its employees."
Project Veritas is a far-right group claiming to investigate and expose corruption. Its founder, James O'Keefe, is best known for releasing edited sting-style videos.
O'Keefe told Newsweek that CBS 62 Detroit "failed to address any of the major issues raised by April Moss' recordings."
"No mention of company-wide efforts to push vaccinations on employees and the public. Instead, CBS aimed its focus at her personally in an effort to divert attention from the findings she presented to our organization," O'Keefe told Newsweek.
Before her employment at the station ended, Moss had been an employee at CBS 62 Detroit since 2012 and was the channel's weekend weather anchor.
She is the second journalist in the past week to announce on live TV that she is acting as a source for Project Veritas.
Last week, Ivory Hecker, a reporter and fill-in anchor for Fox 26 Houston, made a surprise announcement during a live broadcast that she was going to Project Veritas with secret recordings. Hecker was fired last Tuesday.
