Fired Fox radio reporter sues, claiming retaliation

Posted May 06, 2017

What is even more dumbfounding, however, is that Fox Radio's Vice President and General Manager, who conducted the termination in question was, according to media reports, fired from his prior job at ABC, after ABC learned of his improper use of on-line material that included a sexually explicit photograph that was turned over to the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

She says less than 24 hours after she reached out to Michele Hirshman, the lawyer hired by Fox News' parent company 21st Century Fox to investigate claims of harassment by the network's female employees, she received notice that her contract would not be renewed due to budgetary constraints. She said, for instance, that she was essentially forced to work as an assistant to a male colleague covering the 2014 Winter Olympics in Russian Federation. In 2013, she was informed that Fox News had assigned Simon Owen as lead reporter to cover the winter games. She said she was instructed to act as his translator.

A spokesperson for Fox News, a unit of Twenty-First Century Fox Inc FOXA.O , said Golloher's claims were baseless.

A person familiar with the case refuted that account, saying that Golloher's managers were unaware of the email and that the decision to cut her position was made independent of the complaints. "Indeed, while recently on vacation, Fox paid two separate individuals to cover for her despite their purported claim that she is not going to be replaced and that they have no money in the budget to keep Ms. Golloher".

A Jerusalem-based Fox News employee is suing the network for discrimination and retaliation, following up on a statement made to European regulators that more litigation was coming by an attorney who is representing more than a dozen clients against the network.

Golloher says she was berated by producer Dave Anthony, who would dictate word-for-word what she should say in her reports.

During the Olympics, Weinbloom ordered Golloher to shift her reporting to a recent ban by Moscow on lacy underwear imports, and she was sent to spent time covering "ridiculous and frivolous 'panty protests, " according to the complaint.

A radio reporter based in Israel, Golloher said in a lawsuit that she had complained previously that her NY bosses treated her poorly in comparison to male counterparts.

He said that all four of the wounded people he personally saw were Black, but noted that more people were injured and ran away. The San Diego police chief tells the Union-Tribune that police received reports of a man shooting people by the swimming pool.

Golloher claims she reached out to an independent investigator probing other allegations of misconduct at the network, and that a day later she was sacked.

In April, after news broke about the multiple sexual harassment complaints against O'Reilly, Fox News sent out a company-wide email telling employees to contact the Paul Weiss law firm with any workplace complaints 'so that we can attempt to address your concerns promptly and confidentially'. "We will vigorously defend the matter", the company said. Golloher is seeking unspecified damages.

The lawsuit claims Golloher routinely faced gender discrimination, and when she complained she was told to just 'fly under the radar'.
