Ohio anchor files age-discrimination suit

Longtime Columbus, Ohio, anchor Pete Scovill is suing his former employers,
WSYX(TV) and WTTE(TV), charging age discrimination and harassment.

The 56-year-old Scovill claimed that after he was rejected as a candidate for
news director in favor of the younger David Silverstein, Silverstein then
harassed him to get him to leave the station.

Scovill left the station in February, reportedly on medical leave.

Silverstein could not be reached for comment.
