Weatherman sues CBS stations in LA for hiring young, attractive women

Friday, March 16, 2012

imageThat’s unemployed TV weatherman Kyle Hunter. He’s filed an employment discrimination lawsuit against CBS’ two owned-and-operated stations in Los Angeles, claiming he was passed over for jobs because he wasn’t a young, good-looking woman. His lawyer is Gloria Allred, the Hollywood Reporter says. Hunter alleges “that within the past few years, KCAL 9 and KCBS 2 decided to hire young attractive women as weathercasters in prime time rather than men in order to induce more men to watch their prime time newscasts.”

Imagine that.
