Sue Manteris Breaks Silence on Lawsuit

Sue Manteris is speaking out about the discrimination lawsuit she filed against KSNV.

Manteris, who had been with the NBC Las Vegas affiliate for 22 years before her final broadcast on Thursday, claims that KSNV’s decision not to renew her contract was based on racial, age, and gender discrimination. She called the lawsuit “a fight I could not run away from.”

“Cost-cutting measures cannot target all minority workers in a department, and women over 40 only; not in this millennium, not in this country,” Manteris said. “Unfortunately, some businesses still need to learn that.”

The lawsuit, which was filed with the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, names Valley Broadcasting Co., the owner of KSNV. It also names news director Bob Stoldal, general manager Lisa Howfield, and KSNV attorney Douglas Roman Hill.
