FARGO, N.D. (AP) — An attorney representing a Fargo TV station being sued by a former anchorwoman says a settlement has been reached.
Attorney Gina Janeiro tells The Forum that details will be released jointly later Thursday.
Robin Huebner was 49 when she was removed from the 10 p.m. KXJB-KVLY newscast and replaced with a woman about half her age. In a federal lawsuit, she accused station parent Hoak Media of age discrimination, saying the demotion was an attempt to get her to quit.
Hoak maintained the station had a right to make programming changes to stay competitive.
U.S. District Judge Ralph Erickson recently entered a ruling in favor of Hoak and dismissed part of the case that based on federal claims. The suit remained active on claims based on state law.
