KEDM’s Sunny Meriwether Fired

07/22/2009

Lincoln Parish News Online has learned that KEDM’s award winning News Director Sunny Merriweather has been fired.

The Word On The Street weblog first broke the news last Friday evening.

When contacted by LPNO, Station Manager Joel Willer said he could not discuss the firing as it was a personnel issue. Asked if the termination could be construed as a First Amendment issue (government officials firing news reporters), he said that was not the case.

In point of fact, the station is owned by the University Of Louisiana at Monroe – a taxpayer supported government entity.

Keep an eye on this story. Lots more to come in the next few days.
