Providence Reporter is Fighting her Firing


FTVLive told you back on Feb. 12th that WJAR had parted ways with Reporter Julie Tremmel. We wrote that seems that WJAR has finally figured out that Tremmel might not be cut out to be a Reporter in Providence. The station has sent Tremmel packing.

Now Tremmel says she was fired for no reason and she is fighting back.

"I was terminated without cause from WJAR and my Union and I are fighting it through the grievance and arbitration process in our Contract with the Station,”Tremmel told GoLocal Prov in an email. “That is all I'm prepared to say at this time.”

A petition has been launched to bring Tremmel back to the station. The goal of the petition is to garner 1000 signatures, when we checked this morning it had 159.

So yeah.....she's not coming back.
