Has anyone heard from from former 25-66 anchor Sadie Hughes?

Proves once again if you sue Sinclair Broadcasting, they will go all out to ruin your career.

So, just because she hasn’t called you means Sinclair ruined her career?

Sinclair doesn’t have the power to gag someone. Stop giving corporations the power they don’t have.

It is interesting to see she uploaded two resume’ videos on YouTube February 2019. The next month, after getting no response, she filed a lawsuit:

https://dockets.justia.com/docket/michi ... 659/336720

Maybe she refused to go along with praising police blindly, printing their PR spin verbatim (look it up) without any second thought, like Mr. Conflict-of-Interest Harris. Maybe she thought people shouldn’t be hired just because their dad works there. Maybe she spoke out against the lack of diversity. Maybe she was frustrated by the place being ran by amateurs (that’s putting it graciously).

Whatever the reason(s), and like I’ve always said, the only money in broadcasting is suing your former employer. GOOD FOR HER!!!

Just ask Leslie Toldo who sued ABC12 because she claimed black men were being treated better than white women :rollin :rollin :rollin

Or Kimberly Russell who sued TV5 because she said downtown Flint is dangerous.

Or Kelly Miner who sued TV5 because they fired her for sucking at her job.

And how could Sinclair “ruin her career”? Forbidding her from working at other Sinclair stations? They did her a favor!

Good thing about Sadie’s lawsuit is it exposes Sinclair’s/In Over Her Head News Director’s/HR Director-Party Planner’s reliance on unfair practices and intimidation to “keep employees in line”. The mandatory signing of contracts with non-competes, damages, non-disclosures needs to be thrown out by a judge.

Are you saying you are too stupid to read and understand a contract before you sign it..??? You need a Judge to hold your hand before you sign a contract ..?? Maybe YOU should put on some Adult Pants, accept the responsibility of what YOU signed, and stop this childish Whine & Cry story.

Can someone tell Lovin and R how the “foe” setting works so they can understand why their incoherent ramblings are falling on deaf ears?

I'm not familiar with this person and have never watched the station as it's outside my viewing range.

Seriously, how does this distinguish Sinclair from any other broadcast owner?

Vic: Sinclair will tell you (over and over again) how they are one of the largest local broadcasters in America and as a result of their size can force employees to sign these legally questionable clauses because potential employees can’t afford to be banned from working in about 40-percent of TV markets where Sinclair and its sidecar operations do business. It’s a racket that a judge or the FCC needs to break up.

Perhaps I didn't make myself clear. Wouldn't virtually any broadcaster try to deep six any employee or former employee who sued them? How is Sinclair different from all the others?

The lawsuit was filed by Sadie AFTER Sinclair fired her.

Sinclair apparently doesn’t mind picking up people like Leslie Toldo who have sued other broadcasters (ABC12), but doesn’t like it when it happens to them. Sounds like a double standard.

Plus if you don’t want Sadie or others to work for you, that’s fine. That’s a business decision. But to keep them from seeking other employment in market after you fired them is just not OK. If I were to work at Meijer then got a better offer at Kroger, Meijer doesn’t employ legally questionable non-compete employment clauses

Nobody is forced to sign anything.

Here is Sadie’s resume:

Here is her demo reel:

Let’s all help find Sadie a new job to show Sinclair that you can’t keep a good journalist down!

Amazing that you are telling people you are too stupid to read and understand a contract.
