Jen Royle suing WNST for $800,000

Jen Royle suing WNST for $800,000

PostPost #1 by 2131andBeyond » March 30th, 2011, 2:16 pm

News came out today or yesterday (unsure of exact time) that Jen Royle of 105.7 (formerly also of MASN) is suing radio station WNST and its owner Nestor Aparicio for $800,000.

Baltimore Business Journal has more info:

Royle’s lawsuit, filed March 10 in Circuit Court for Baltimore City, alleges that the 105.7-FM “The Fan” sports reporter was defamed by statements made on air and online by Aparicio and WNST staffers, Glenn Clark and Drew Forrester.

The suit alleges that Aparicio, Clark and Forrester made statements that Royle isn’t qualified for her job, lied on her resume, had “personal, sexual and/or inappropriate relationships” with multiple pro athletes and “that she looks like a stripper.” Those statements were false and made with the intention of hurting Royle’s professional reputation, according to the suit.

The lawsuit alleges that Royle was so upset by those comments she had to seek mental health treatment and take prescription medication to treat what the suit called, “severe emotional distress.” Royle seeks $500,000 in compensatory damages and $300,000 in punitive damages.

Nestor also posted a long piece on WNST.net explaining a bit of his side of things.

I personally cant stand Jen Royle and hope she is gone soon. But for a media member to make accusations such as those, they probably ought to have some proof. If none of the lying or sexual accusations are true she probably has a right to defend herself
