I think Amy Jacobson’s Wikipedia entry sums it all up nicely:
Amy Jacobson was a general assignment reporter for WMAQ, the NBC television affiliate in Chicago, Illinois, USA, from 1996 to 2007.
On July 6, 2007, a videotape of Jacobson, clad in a bikini, and her children at the home of Craig Stebic, husband of Lisa Stebic, a missing woman, was made public by WBBM, the local CBS affiliate. Ms. Jacobson had been covering the story of Ms. Stebic’s unexplained disappearance.
On July 10, 2007, Jacobson and WMAQ negotiated her exit, following an investigation by the station.
On Monday, July 7, 2008, the Chicago Sun-Times reported “On Monday, Jacobson filed a multimillion-dollar lawsuit against CBS-owned WBBM-Channel 2 for airing the tape of her at the home of Craig Stebic, the southwest suburban Plainfield man whose estranged wife, Lisa, has been missing since April 2007.”
