Ex-WLDR Jock Files Suit
April 14, 2009 at 7:20 AM (PT)
A former DJ at FORT BEND Country WLDR (SUNNY COUNTRY)/TRAVERSE CITY, who contends he was harassed, abused and underpaid by the station owner, has filed a lawsuit, reports THE RECORD-EAGLE, which wrote "DANIEL S. HARRELL, also known as DAN STEVENS, worked as a disc jockey, production manager and sales person for WLDR-FM 101.9 "Sunny Country" from OCTOBER 2007 until DECEMBER, according to his suit. The suit names station owner ROY HENDERSON and several radio companies that 'share authority' over the station, said HARRELL's attorney, JEFF JOCKS."
The suit alleges HENDERSON "on a regular and systematic basis, and without provocation, harassed, insulted, assaulted, battered, demeaned, enslaved and violated" HARRELL throughout his course of employment.
HARRELL seeks at least $25,000 in damages.
The RECORD-EAGLE says "HENDERSON deferred comment to his attorney, who's just beginning to review the suit and isn't ready to give detailed comment, though he called the suit's credibility into question."
"There are some factual allegations in there that are basically non-existent ... they just didn't happen," HENDERSON's attorney said.
