TOO OLD FOR KC TV? Karen Fuller
an Arkansas native who once anchored KATV newscasts
, has sued a Kansas City TV station for terminating her without cause after 12 years at the station. She says it's a case of age and gender discrimination.
A report in the Kansas City Star
quotes Fuller's complaint as saying “the company has created a “ceiling age” for its female anchors but not male anchors” and that “women age out in their mid-to late 40s
.” Her contract wasn't renewed in 2015,
when Fuller was 47. She has since taken a job as an anchor for a Cedar Rapids, Iowa, TV station.
