Nashville news station WSMV has settled with three former on-air personalities who charged the station with age discrimination and harassment in a lawsuit filed 15 months ago, The Tennessean reports. No details were revealed about the settlement between WSMV and former veteran reporter Dennis Ferrier, former anchor Jennifer Johnson and former longtime weekend weathercaster Nancy Van Camp. The lawsuit said the station started "a station-wide pattern and practice of age-based employment discrimination and harassment that resulted in the reduction, removal and/or replacement of many of its veteran on-air personalities." The station still faces an age/discrimination lawsuit from former longtime anchor Demetria Kalodimos.
