New York Radio Personality Shaila Scott Sues Former Operators of 107.5 WBLS for Age and Gender Discrimination

Law.com/Radar reports- Radio personality Shaila Scott sued the current and former operators of WBLS radio station in New York City on (last) Friday over alleged employment discrimination. The lawsuit, filed by Wigdor LLP in New York Southern District Court, accuses MediaCo Holdings Inc. and Emmis Communications of discriminating against Scott based on age and gender.

The suit claims that Scott was paid less than male colleagues and ridiculed because of her age before she was fired in May 2022 and replaced with a younger radio host. Counsel have not yet appeared for the defendants. The case is 1:22-cv-05860, Cattouse v. MediaCo Holding Inc. et al.

Scott told the New York Daily News, “I am shocked and saddened that WBLS decided that when I reached 59, it was time to discard me,” Scott, identified in the legal documents as Amilee Cattouse, shared. “I dedicated my career to radio and to the fans that listen, who I will miss greatly. I hope my decision to speak up will shine a light on the realities that women still get paid less than men for the same job and at a certain age, they are no longer valued.”
