Johnstown PA Radio: Fired DJ Sues Broadcasting Co.

Nancy Lane
A popular radio personality who claimed she was unfairly fired a year ago as a result of criminal actions by her ex-husband filed a federal lawsuit in U.S. District Court in Johnstown alleging wrongful termination and gender discrimination.

According to, former WRKW Rocky 99 FM (Ebensburg, PA) and WFGI Froggy 95.5 FM (Johnstown)  radio personality Nancy Lane, who broadcast under the names “Daisy” and “Lexi,” filed the lawsuit this week seeking unspecified damages against her former employer, Forever of PA Inc. in Hollidaysburg.

Lane claims she was fired because of the actions of her ex-husband, George Lane, 36, who is serving a 50-month prison sentence for his conviction last year in Cambria County on multiple counts of stalking.

According to the 10-page lawsuit, Lane's employer began working with her through the domestic ordeal that was being investigated by multiple police departments and that county's district attorney's office.

“On or about Jan. 31, 2014, Ms. Lane received a call from the Cambria County District Attorney's office in which Ms. Lane was informed that (George) Lane was soliciting her murder and that it was prudent for Ms. Lane and her male co-worker, Boss Frog (another on-air personality), to leave town for the weekend,” the lawsuit states.

In response, Forever General Manager Terry Deitz told Nancy Lane that she would be granted paid leave from work.

“On Feb. 4, 2014, effective Feb. 3, 2014, Forever fired Ms. Lane for the following reason, ‘Regrettably, recent events involving your former husband have caused severe disruption to our business and made this decision necessary,' ” the lawsuit alleges.

Lane said she was escorted from the radio station building Feb. 3, 2014.
