WPGC's DJ RANE files a sex discrimination lawsuit against CBS Radio.
WPGC personality Ranelle "DJ Rane" Sykes is suing her employer, CBS Radio, for discrimination. The lawsuit alleges sex discrimination and a violation of the Maryland Equal Pay Act.
According to a posting at dcrtv.com, Sykes, who holds a bachelor's degree in broadcast journalism, says she's paid less than her male "Home Team" co-host, who holds a high school diploma.
The lawsuit requests more than $200,000 in back pay and damages from Lanham-based CBS's DC operations.
