Chicago's NBC affiliate station severed ties with reporter Amy Jacobson after its crosstown rival, the CBS station, caught Jacobson with her tan lines showing. CBS showed video of Jacobson in a bikini top attending a pool party at the home of Craig Stebic, the husband of missing Lisa Stebic. Jacobson has been covering the story.

Her children were also caught on video at the party; the anchor said she was on the way to take them swimming when she ran into Stebic's sister, who suggested she come to the house to discuss the case.
