Tennessee radio hire WSMV, an NBC affiliate, came under fire this week after it fired longtime anchor Demetria Kalodimos, who had been named as a declare in an age taste fit against the station.
The Tennessean reported that WSMV notified Kalodimos that she had been fired by fixation a minute on her desk.
In a statement, Kalodimos pronounced that it was “quite unhappy to finish a scarcely 34-year career the way this company chose to finish it.”
She explained that the hire chose to finish her career “with a minute left on a desk, no conversation, no face to face meeting, no thanks.”
Kalodimos pronounced that WSMV also done no genuine offer to extend her contract, which lapsed on Dec. 31. But she reported that she was invited to stay on two some-more weeks “so that the hire could create the apparition that we retired.”
Kalodimos’ ousting comes after the hire was accused in a lawsuit of “many acts of age-based taste and hostility” against her and two other reporters.
And nonetheless Kalodimos is only a declare in the age-discrimination lawsuit, which was filed by other employees, her banishment is approaching to fuel allegations against WSMV.
“Longtime and constant viewers need no reason of what’s been happening at WSMV, a once lauded ‘legacy’ radio station,” Kalodimos pronounced in her statement.
