Trial began Wednesday in Eugene in a civil lawsuit in which former KFLY-FM traffic reporter Michael Fleming says he was the victim of discrimination and hateful attacks on the afternoon “Donkey Show.”
Show hosts say the teasing and barbs were part of the raunchy format and Fleming couldn’t take a joke.
The Register-Guard reports the trial in Lane County Circuit Court is expected to last into next week.
In the lawsuit against the station and Bicoastal Media, Fleming is seeking more than $500,000 in damages.
Among other things show host Chad “Tanner” Haney called Fleming a “stupid old man.”
