Court papers filed Friday allege longtime Channel 4 news reporter Dennis Ferrier was terminated after he “fabricated key details in a local news story he reported," according to The Tennessean. The allegation comes from Channel 4 owner, Meredith Corporation, in response to an age discrimination lawsuit filed by Ferrier and fellow WSMV personalities, Jennifer Johnson and Nancy Van Camp. Ferrier released a statement Monday saying he made a “simple misstatement on the air based on information given to me by the desk” and that he has “never fabricated a story in any way, shape or form."
