Erick Adame Fired
In September 2022, meteorologist Erick Adame was fired from his job for appearing on an adult webcam website. In a statement on Instagram, the former NY1 meteorologist said he was terminated after his employer learned of his involvement on the site.
Erick Adame said in a statement on Instagram: “I have recently been terminated from my job as the meteorologist at Spectrum News NY1 in NYC. I am taking this opportunity to share my truth rather than let others control the narrative of my life.
“My psychiatrist calls my actions, ‘compulsive behavior,’ others would call them reckless, stupid or brazen. I’m not in a position to argue with any of these descriptions.
“Despite being a public figure and being on television in the biggest market in the country in front of millions of people five days a week for more than a decade and a half, I secretly appeared on an adult webcam website. On this site, I acted out my compulsive behaviors, while at home, by performing on camera for other men. It was 100% consensual on both of our parts. I wasn’t paid for this, and it was absurd of as to think I could keep this private. Nonetheless, my employer found out and I was suspended and then terminated.
“First and foremost, I unequivocally apologize to my employers at Spectrum, my co-workers, my audience, my family and my friends for any embarrassment or humiliation I have caused you. You expected and deserved better from me.
“I can’t take it back, and I can’t change what I did, but I am getting the professional help I need so I can make appropriate decisions that don’t affect those I care deeply about, as well as my career, as I move forward in my life.
“As a public figure I recognize that I have certain responsibilities that come along with the privileges I enjoyed. But, let me be clear about something: I don’t apologize for being openly gay or for being sex-positive—those are gifts and I have no shame about them. Right now I’m adrift in my life for the first time in many years. I had the job of my dreams and I lost it due to my own lapse in judgment. But, I’m optimistic, and perhaps naive enough to think that I can be back on television and do this again someday. After all, the odds were against me almost two decades ago as the son of working-class Mexican immigrants who was the first in the family to go to college; the first to be on television, the first to ‘make something of himself.’
“I’d like to say something to the News Directors across the country—those who will make the ultimate decision on whether or not to hire me in the future: Please judge me on the hundreds, thousands of hours of television that I am so proud of and that my employers have always commended me for, and not the couple of minutes of salacious video that is probably going to soon define me in our ‘click-bait’ culture.
“Think about your management of the newsroom—what have you overlooked, forgiven or ignored? In the end, all talent is fallible, full of human foibles, and your job is not made easier by our antics. One thing I can promise is that I have learned a lesson and I will be an exemplary employee and the most informed and enthusiastic meteorologist you have ever seen.
“However you feel about me as a colleague, viewer or friend, I appreciate you taking the time to listen to what I have to say. It means a great deal for you to hear this from me, in my own words. And again, even at this horrible, humbling moment, I have nothing but love and gratitude for all of you and the world. I absolutely loved my job and being a part of your day for years was an absolute honor. I have been blessed and know it and will act accordingly moving forward.”
