EVEN CELEBS HAVE NON-COMPETES

Don’t you just love one local news anchor? Isn’t it usually the case that we pick favorites and watch their news cast? I know I do.

Well, your local TV personality likely has a non-compete agreement. If he or she leaves, you the viewer may follow which the network clearly does not want.

One Washington State based anchor tried to move from TV to radio with a few TV appearances and she is being sued for breach of her agreement. Her response? Sue the network right back for discrimination.

We will see how this news making lawsuit plays out.

Now, you really want to follow a “CELEB” non-compete? (and if you do – don’t admit it) – you can follow the fav Jon and Kate plus 8 as Jon is currently in litigation for breaching his contract with TLC. Non-competes even apply to reality stars.
