The former LMA operator of a LITTLE ROCK station is suing the buyer and seller of the station for booting her from the station upon the sale.
ARKANSAS BUSINESS reports that ALMA VISCARRA alleges that she had a three-year deal with then-owner DAVIDSON MEDIA to operate Spanish Variety KTUV-A (POTENCIA LATINA)/LITTLE ROCK in 2006 and spent about $250,000 on the arrangement when, in 2008, the station was sold to BIRACH BROADCASTING and the new owner sent her packing.
“She wasn’t told why,” VISCARRA’s attorney CHRIS MCNEAL told ARKANSAS BUSINESS. “She was just told the straight fact that she had to leave.”
VISCARRA is suing BIRACH and DAVIDSON for unspecified damages.
