Former San Antonio TV sports anchor arrested on prostitution charge

SAN ANTONIO (KTSA News) – A former KABB FOX 29 reporter who now works at a television station in Amarillo is out on bond after being arrested on a charge of solicitation of prostitution.

ABC 7/KVII reports Anthony Pittman was taken into custody Friday in Randall County.

“KVII regrets to report that our morning anchor, Anthony Pittman, was arrested today (Friday Jan. 24) by the Amarillo Police Department,” read the statement on the television station’s website. “An arrest is obviously not a conviction, but we will keep our viewers aware as the case progresses.”

Pittman was a sports anchor and reporter at KABB FOX29 from 2000 to 2010. His LinkedIn profile indicates he’s worked at the Amarillo TV station since 2013. He’s a graduate of John Jay High School and Texas State University.

“We promised transparency in our reporting of the arrest of our colleague Anthony Pittman,” read another statement from ABC 7.
“Anthony has been charged with Class B solicitation of prostitution. It is considered a misdemeanor and with no aggravating circumstances, which do not appear to be a factor, the punishment if convicted is up to 180 days in jail and up to a $2000 fine. We will update this story as events dictate.”
