Judge Boots Philly Reporter From Bill Cosby Trial

The Bill Cosby case is a huge trial that many Reporters have been eager to cover.

But one Reporter for NBC O&O WCAU is no longer allowed in the courtroom. 

WCAU Reporter Brian McCrone was barred from covering the remainder of the trial Tuesday after court officials caught him sending text messages while court was in session.

“One of our reporters unfortunately forgot to turn off his cellphone during the Cosby trial proceedings and answered a text during the trial,” a station spokesperson said. “Our reporter apologized to the court and the credential has been revoked.”

McCrone has been writing and editing for the TV station’s website, NBCPhiladelphia.com, since 2016.  

He did not return a request for comment.
