CBS Sports broadcaster Greg Gumbel is alleging in a lawsuit that a television producer tricked him into appearing on Internet informercials, the Associated Press reports. Filed Tuesday in U.S. District Court in Fort Lauderdale, the suit alleges Encore Television Group owner Paul Douglas Scott told Gumbel he’d be introducing educational programming, the news agency says. The introductions instead were used in informercials for magnet therapy and time-share arrangements, Gumbel alleges, the news service reports.
