Jericka Duncan, the CBS News correspondent who received the threatening text that led to CBS firing 60 Minutes chief Jeff Fager this week, came to the network five years ago from Philadelphia's CBS3, where she had been an award-winning reporter.

Fager's firing, which came before the completion of the company's investigation into allegations raised in a New Yorker piece by Ronan Farrow, was attributed to a violation of company policy, but didn't specify the violation. Fager, in a statement released on Wednesday, described the text message he said was responsible for his ouster as "harsh," but on Wednesday night, in an appearance on the CBS Evening News, Duncan revealed the content of the text, received after she contacted him for comment regarding Farrow's reporting:

"If you repeat these false accusations without any of your own reporting to back them up, you will be responsible for harming me. Be careful. There are people who lost their jobs trying to harm me and if you pass on these damaging claims without your own reporting to back them up that will become a serious problem."

Here's what Duncan's CBS biography has to say about her time in Philadelphia:

"Before joining CBS News in 2013, Duncan spent three years at KYW, the CBS-owned TV station in Philadelphia. At KYW, she earned first place from the Associated Press for a series of reports on disabled adults who were held captive in a Social Security scam. She was also nominated for an Emmy. Duncan covered Hurricane Irene in 2011 and Superstorm Sandy in 2012. The Philadelphia Association of Black Journalists honored her in 2012 with the Journalist of the Year Award."
