Bounced Columbus Anchor Goes to Court

Earlier Today, FTVLive told you that former WBNS Kurt Ludlow, who  was pushed out at the Columbus station, was fighting his old station in court. A legal fund has been set up in his name.

Ludlow had a job offer across the street at Sinclair's WSYX, but WBNS blocked the move with a non-compete clause. 

Today Ludlow had round one in court.

Sources tell FTVLive that WBNS GM John Cardenas, and News Director Elbert Tucker testified today on behalf of WBNS.

WSYX News Director Mitch Jacob was also in court, telling the judge that he gave Ludlow a job offer on July 17 but rescinded it after WBNS sent a letter to the station. 

The hearing is expected to continue.
