Libel Lawsuit Between WCMH Meteorologists Settled

A libel lawsuit between two meteorologists at WCMH in Columbus has been settled, according to the Columbus Dispatch.

Bob Nunnally sued chief meteorologist Jym Ganahl earlier this month, alleging 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.”

The Dispatch reports that court records state a settlement has been reached, but do not offer further details. Both meteorologists are veterans of the Columbus NBC affiliate: Ganahl joined the station in 1979 and Nunnally joined the station in 1996.
