DBC Top 40 WKZL/GREENSBORO and morning man JACK MURPHY are being sued by a local woman, VERLA ENGLERT, who alleges that MURPHY made defamatory statements about her on his radio show in APRIL 2005 in connection with her criminal record, which has damaged her business.
According to the WINSTON-SALEM JOURNAL, a woman called in to MURPHY's show asking about ENGLERT's background, and the suit charges that MURPHY said that "ENGLERT had been convicted eight times for assault with a deadly weapon and that the caller to the radio station should be concerned about ENGLERT because she was obviously dangerous." No comment from WKZL or MURPHY.
