FTVLive told you back in May that WBNS Anchor Kurt Ludlow was pushed out at the Columbus station.
Ludlow had hoped to land a job across the street at Sinclair's WSYX, but WBNS blocked the move with a non-compete clause and now Ludlow is fighting it.
To offset the legal bills to fight WBNS, a legal fund has been set up on gofundme.com in Ludlow's name.
Dr. Bill Adrion says on the page that he is a close friend of Ludlow's and says that "just as he was in the process of accepting another job at another Columbus TV station, lawyers for Channel 10 sent a letter saying they “would move swiftly” against Kurt to keep him from working."
He adds that "Kurt and his wife Laura don’t have a lot of money and the legal bills are beginning to mount. Those of us who support and love Kurt are hoping to raise $20,000 to cover the legal fees that will likely be necessary to help Kurt work in TV in Columbus again."
The page has raise nearly $5,000 in his fight against his old station.
