TAMPA -- A former employee of Clear Channel Communications Inc. has sued, alleging sexual harassment by radio talk-show host Tedd Webb.
April Yerger, who worked as a traffic manager and promotions assistant for stations WFLA-AM 970 and WDAE-AM 620, contends Webb harassed her with unwelcome comments and sexual innuendos. She also says supervisors retaliated after she complained.
Webb is named in the suit but is not a defendant. He declined to comment Wednesday. Sue Treccase, operations manager for the stations, also declined to comment.
Yerger, who quit her job, is seeking back pay and damages from Clear Channel, the owner of the stations. She could not be reached Wednesday.
Webb was named with others in a 1991 lawsuit filed against Jacor, the company that owned WFLA before before it was acquired by Clear Channel. On-air personality Liz Richards accused Webb and other men at WFLA of sexually harassing and demeaning her both on and off the air.
Richards and the station reached an undisclosed settlement in 1995.
