WCMH’s Bob Nunnally Files Libel Lawsuit Against Fellow Meteorologist Jym Ganahl

WCMH meteorologist Bob Nunnally (left) has filed a libel lawsuit against Jym Ganahl (right), the station’s chief meteorologist, in Franklin County Common Pleas Court.

The Columbus Dispatch reports the complaint was filed on November 5 and alleges that Ganahl and “an unknown individual or individuals” made false statements that hurt Nunnally professionally and caused him to be exposed to “ridicule, hatred or contempt.”

Attorneys for both parties would not detail what was allegedly said. The suit seeks damages of more than $25,000.

Ganahl has worked at the Columbus NBC affiliate since 1979, appearing on the 5, 6 and 11 p.m. newscasts. Nunnally is the station’s morning meteorologist.

The case was randomly assigned to Judge Daniel Hogan, who subsequently recused himself because he is married to Gail Hogan, an anchor at WCMH.
