Redmond update

WPXI 11 p.m. anchor Gina Redmond is expected to return to the Channel 11 airwaves tonight. She was taken off the air Monday after she was accused of slapping a former colleague, WTAE producer Roberta Petterson, at a party over the weekend. Promos featuring Redmond continued to air Monday and Tuesday.

"We've concluded our preliminary consideration of the issues surrounding this matter and believe it's one for the courts to address," said WPXI news director Pat Maday in a prepared statement. "While this moves through the legal system, Gina will continue in her duties. We're concerned for both Gina and Roberta and hope this comes to a proper and positive resolution."
