Former Fox anchor Jim Walker quits 23-year TV news career to become a gay porn star

By on

Talk about a complete career change. After a 23-year career in the news industry, Jim Walker, a former Fox and CBS anchorman and reporter, has fallen out of love with the news industry and pursues a very different career path.

The revelations came from the NSFW porn blog Titan Men, according to PinkNewsUK which reported that the former TV news anchorman is now a gay porn star and a male escort. He has also adopted a new monicker, Dallas Steele, as it is more “career appropriate” given his new job.

The 44-year-old Walker, originally from California, had an illustrious career as a TV news anchor. He had won many awards for reading news on local Fox, CBS and NBC stations and had a clean cut image. Apparently, it was not enough as the stress of the job was too much that he decided to reinvent himself.

Needless to say, it was quite a leap for the now-known Steele as he has made a solid vertical career move, which he now spends his time earning hardcore adult film titles who now has 11 titles, than sitting behind a news desk.

The former TV anchor recently left the news industry after his last stint as an anchorman in South Florida did not work well. He was told by the network that the South Florida TV viewers simply did not like him. His move to the porn industry was also due to the passing of his long-time partner, and triggered him to make the life-changing career decision.

“I left the business in 2013 after my boss in Southwest Florida told me that research had shown people here just don’t like you,” Walker said in an interview with the Gaily Grind. “You know, I loved telling news, I loved breaking news and I loved telling good stories. But I didn’t like the continuous bulls––t that management put you through and the constant pressure to sensationalize and exaggerate what was really true just to boost ratings.”

Despite the career change, Walker admits that he has greatly benefited from his previous life as a former TV news anchor. While he claims to have interviewed every still-living US president, his previous work experience sets him apart from his gay porn colleagues.

With a physically fit and imposing physique, gay adult film star Jim Walker says that being in the porn industry is a bridge to something bigger and better.
