Jason Carr’s firing from WDIV-TV (Channel 4) earlier this month came after multiple clashes with colleagues and management, station insiders told the Detroit Free Press.

Carr, who co-hosted “Live in the D,” was fired after the Dec. 6 broadcast of “Jason Carr Live” on the station’s streaming channel, Local 4+. His biography was quietly scrubbed from the station’s website and he was edited out of the “Live in the D” intro.

WDIV confirmed Carr’s termination but did not provide further details. The Live in the D Facebook page confirmed his departure in a statement Tuesday.

“WDIV is very fortunate to have viewers who are deeply passionate about our programs and our people,” the message said. “Many of you are asking what happened to Jason Carr. As you can imagine, we do not comment on questions from station staff. As for Jason, he and the station parted ways last week. Jason’s impact at WDIV has been significant and we wish him much success and happiness in the future.”

Carr did not respond to a request for comment.

Employees told the Free Press that Curry was counseled by management a half-dozen times before his last show, where he described unnamed co-workers as unfriendly. In one previous incident, employees said, he left the set during a commercial break to assault someone working in the control room.
