The economic savings of offloading big-name talent may now carry an unexpected pricetag: the lawsuits. Former KPRC/Houston anchor Wendy Corona’s filed suit, according to the entertainingly-titled Houston Press blog “Hair Balls: “Former KPRC Channel 2 anchorwoman Wendy Corona is suing her former news station, alleging breach of contract and defamation.”
Corona, who arrived at the Post-Newsweek station from sister station WPLG in Miami, claims she was “blindsided,” Corona’s attorney, Jan Fox, tells Hair Balls. “One day she was on the air and the next day she wasn’t, without notice. It’s terrific damage to your public reputation to suddenly be jerked off the air due to circumstances beyond your control.”
Corona’s asking for lost wages, benefits and undetermined payment for damage to her reputation.
