Hearing held in former KODE personality's lawsuit

Associated Press reported earlier this week that the age discrimination lawsuit filed by former KODE weekend weathercaster Marny Stanier may be decided by whether the Weather Channel is news or entertainment.
Ms. Stanier claims she was fired at age 41 in 2003 because the Weather Channel wanted younger, sexier on-air personalities.
Weather Channel officials apparently believe viewers will not tune in to their programming if they have older women reporting the weather. The same viewpoint apparently does not apply to older men.
