New KABC battle one for ages

As if KABC radio didn’t have enough problems in the wake of the public outcry over Michael Jackson’s dismissal from his weekday morning time period, the L.A. station is also reportedly being investigated by the Washington, D.C.-based Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) on an alleged charge of ageism.

The charge apparently stems from a complaint filed by a disgruntled former employee. The EEOC is barred by federal regulation from discussing any ongoing investigation. It can neither confirm nor deny.

It has also been learned that KABC has an unwritten policy that forbids its on-air screeners from allowing anyone over the age of 50 on the station’s air so as to promote listenership by the desired demographic group aged 18 to 49.

Calls to KABC on Wednesday were not returned.
