Legal Fund Set Up for Former Columbus Anchor

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 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.
