There is finally some closure in the Steven A. Smith saga.

TV host Stephen A. Smith took on a new role Friday–investigative reporter. He said he found that an assistant producer on his ESPN2 show, “Quite Frankly With Stephen A. Smith,” had deceived him about a memo relating to an episode with Dusty Baker. “He lied to everybody,” Smith said. “Then he tried to cover it up.” The aide had e-mailed an invitation to several Cubs blogs offering free tickets to the taping of the show and adding: “You guys can definitely feel free to BOO Dusty if you so please.” After learning of the memo, Baker pulled out. Smith said the assistant producer admitted Friday he had lied. “I apologize for any unethical behavior from a member of my staff,” Smith said. “He will be dealt with.”
