NEW YORK – CNN says Howard Kurtz will address his mistaken story on gay basketball player Jason Collins on “Reliable Sources,” the weekly media criticism show he hosts on the news network.

Kurtz also worked for website The Daily Beast, which retracted one of his stories that suggested Collins had hidden a previous engagement to a woman when the basketball player came out as gay. In fact, Collins had disclosed the engagement.

Kurtz and The Daily Beast parted ways Thursday after the retraction.

CNN had said Kurtz’s status was under review. The network was also looking into Kurtz’s ties to the media website Daily Download.

Spokeswoman Edie Emery would not say Friday whether Kurtz’s scheduled appearance Sunday indicated the network’s review was complete.
