ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – The former KMOV news anchor, Larry Conners, gave an update on his job search and legal status through a Facebook post on Sunday.
In the post Conners says he was offered a job in the St. Louis area, but Channel 4 and KMOV news director Sean McLaughlin insists Conners is still under a non-compete clause, keeping him from working in St. Louis for one year.
He says his attorney Merle Silverstein, however, has filed to stop KMOV from enforcing the non-compete.
The details of the job offer were not included in his post.
Conners added that he is moving forward with his claim that he was fired because of his age with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.
Conners also says he testified in front of the National Labor Relations Board, claiming he did not violate KMOV’s Facebook policy. Conners claims that he never saw the policy before his posting that led to his termination and that KMOV did not negotiate the policy, which is required by the union’s Collective Bargaining Agreement.
Conners says according to the CBA, KMOV’s Facebook policy technically does not exist and therefore cannot be enforced. The NLRB is waiting for a response from KMOV, he says.
