Spokane Anchorman Sues Station That Fired Him

A popular Spokane, WA anchorman has indicated he will wage an all-out battle to fight his ouster from station KHQ, charging in a complaint that management of the station conspired to "destroy" him. Seventeen-year veteran Randy Shaw was fired last month following "a claim of harassment by a co-worker," believed to be Shaw's former co-anchor, Penny Daniels. As reported in Friday's Spokane Spokesman Review, Shaw's lawyers are demanding that the station produce all written complaints against him by station staff members, including Daniels. They are also demanding to see employee gripes "regarding Daniels and her reporting on former Spokane Police Chief Alan Chertok while she was dating him."
