WLNE-TV Hit With Lawsuit

Apr 13, 2009  •  Post A Comment

WLNE-TV in Providence, R.I., and reporter Parker Gavigan have been named in a lawsuit seeking at least $5 million that was filed by entertainment company Edge 1 Productions, Broadcasting & Cable reports. The company accuses WLNE of “falsely labeling [Edge 1’s] operations as, and comparing them to, a fraudulent or criminal enterprise” for a report called “The Dream Makers” that suggested parents were charged large sums even though their kids stood little chance for success in auditions, the trade paper says. WLNE station manager Steve Doerr said the station stands by the story and will fight the charge, the publication says.
