A Detroit TV meteorologist announced Sunday during a story on her local CBS News outlet that later this week she will be revealing with investigative organization Project Veritas "discrimination" against company employees.

"I will be sitting down this week with Project Veritas to discuss the discrimination that CBS is enforcing upon its employees," reporter April Moss said in the middle of a weather report. "Tune into Project Veritas for my full story."

Moss is the latest whistleblower to come forward on air against a news organization.

A TV news reporter for a Fox affiliate in Houston said last week the station's parent company is "muzzling" her and that she is sharing secret recordings with the undercover news operation Project Veritas.

"I want to let you, the viewers, know that Fox Corp. has been muzzling me to keep certain information from you, the viewers," KRIV reporter Ivory Hecker said when she was supposed to be doing a story on a local heatwave.

Hecker was reportedly fired for her on-air actions.
