CBS Miami Station Sued For Age/Gender Discrimination

September 17, 2018

Michele Gillen, a veteran reporter, is one of a handful of women in male-dominated industry who has held sway as a hard news reporter. She was voted Miami New Times Best TV Reporter in 2014, and lauded for “the kind of boundary-pushing broadcast journalism that has made Gillen among the most decorated reporters in Miami history.”

In the age and gender discrimination awsuit, Gillen alleges that Jim DeFede, another reporter at the station, hurtled “false and humiliating accusations” at her in a 2014 staff meeting — a witness describes Gillen as being “cannibalized.” DeFede also allegedly said that he was done trying to figure out which stories might appeal to “women who are menstruating and watching Blue Bloods.”
