A weather reporter at a Detroit CBS affiliate interrupted her live broadcast to drop a bombshell announcement that she is going to Project Veritas.
Midway through her weather forecast on Sunday, Moss stopped talking about the warm temperatures and said: “Speaking of a brand new week, I will be sitting down this week with Project Veritas to discuss the discrimination that CBS is enforcing on its employees. Tune in to Project Veritas for my full story.”

Project Veritas is a far-right group claiming to “investigate and expose corruption.”
It’s unclear whether Moss still works for CBS 62, but the network currently lists her as a weather forecaster. According to her profile on CBS 62’s website, Moss joined the station’s weather team in 2012 and is their weekend weather anchor.
CBS 62 Detroit did not immediately respond to a request for comment from Insider on Hecker’s employment status.
A spokesman for Project Veritas said Moss’s sit-down interview with Project Veritas will likely be broadcast on Tuesday night.
When asked if more reporters have reached out to the group, the spokesman said: “We are observing a movement of inspired media insiders coming forward, and more insiders will be compelled to speak out against corruption and wrongdoing in the very near future.”
Moss is the second journalist this week to pull an on-air stunt and announce that they’re going to Project Veritas with information on their employers.
Last Monday, local Fox reporter Ivory Hecker also made a surprise announcement during a live TV report, saying she was going to Project Veritas with secret recordings.
“I want to let you the viewers know that Fox Corp. has been muzzling me to keep certain information from you,” said Ivory Hecker, who was a general assignment reporter and fill-in anchor with Fox affiliate Fox 26 Houston until she was fired last Tuesday.
