Well that didn't take long... The producer that was fired from KDKA-TV for creating the 'Tom Brady, Known Cheater' graphic is already getting interviews. Deadspin had a talk with him earlier today:
Can you walk me through what happened since the segment aired on Monday evening?
So, I’m a producer, I write the news and decide the order, choose what graphics show up, etc. For the 4 p.m. news, the kicker is usually soft and sweet. We get these packages that come down from corporate and it was just like, Here are the two teams in the Super Bowl , pretty boring. So I wrote the intro about the six rings and then changed it up. I mean, it’s Pittsburgh, we hate the Patriots, we hate Tom Brady, so it was a little wink for fans. Then I kept going on with my day. After the news, I left at 5 p.m.

There was even a Go Fund Me set up in his name . But, according to the page he is refusing the money and instead asking for it to be donated to a charity in Brady's name.
