Former radio host fired after estranged husband threatens company

Radio Host Fired After Estranged Husband Threatens Company

A popular radio host in Pennsylvania is making headlines after she says her company fired her because of her dangerous estranged husband.

Nancy Lane was the well-known DJ on two Forever Broadcasting shows until she received a letter last Tuesday that explained recent events involving George Lucas Lane had caused 'severe disruption' to the business.

Nancy told reporters she left George last summer after he allegedly burned down their home in Portage. He has made headlines multiple times for threatening her, her family and her co-workers. Last year, Nancy says he even went as far as slashing tires of several company cars.

Forever Broadcasting has not commented on Lane's firing, but took action to dismiss her after George began threatening the company.

George is currently in jail for impersonating a police officer last month which is still under investigation. Nancy told WJAC she doesn't know what's next for her, but said her main priority is focusing on her children.

Wow, seriously? This is oh so wrong in oh so many ways... Everything seems to be documented, the perp is in jail, and yet innocent people (I'd sad this if it were a man being harassed by his ex-wife too) are made to suffer severe consequences.

And what would you be saying if when this guy gets out of jail he comes to the station and kills anyone that is there?

and who is to say he won't still show-up as the place where she used to work. the corporation needs to place security around or control entrance into the building or both. he already proven he is a madman, even before she was fired, but yet had they the corp done anything probably not. so it was just cheaper to fire than protect

No, what would be illegal is if they did nothing and someone got hurt! Horrible?? Most definitely. Wish there was an easy answer, but there is not.

This is a classic illustration of a mentally disturbed individual being able to walk the streets until he finally acts on his threats. We see it every single day & unfortunately, law enforcement can't act until a criminal action has happened. It's a catch 22 where we value our individual freedoms but when a threat is apparent & there's evidence to back it up, a person needs to serve jail time for his defacto capacity to make good on those threats. Two yrs. minimum with psychological evaluations & strict probation terms upon release should be the minimum. This woman or company shouldn't have to suffer due to the obvious sickness of a deranged individual. This is a red flag waving for all to see..

Arson is a first degree felony. Why isn't he in jail for arson?

The real question here is why wasn't this guy in jail...PERMANENTLY! Everyone is being punished...the woman who has lost her job, the children whose mother now has no job and the business who has to choose between the woman and their other employees. Everyone except the person who SHOULD be paying the price. In situations like this, when it's very obvious this person is a menace to society in general they shouldn't be released to perpetuate their villainy.

I suspect he's one of the 'Silver Tongued' monsters that gets away with ANYTHING. He's the one who affects the puzzled look, and says, 'Who, ME?' when accused, and does it so well that he is believed. Not just once, but time after time. Those in authority believe him, no matter what anyone else says.

Isn't this a little like punishing an attacker by burning the baseball bat he used?

and at what point were the police and the prosecutor's office going to do something with this lunatic? after he blew up the station or worse, murdered his wife. he should be held without bond in a psyco hospital in a straight jacket until his court appearance

The cure is to strongly turn the tables.... Capone style. That's the only thing certain people understand.

UUUUUH ! Methinks that wouldn't go down well with the management at the station. PLUS, the old 'Tommy Guns' are hard to get nowadays. Give it more thought, something needs doing, but 'Capone Style' is very, very messy requiring days of cleanup.

Kenny 19826 wants the cops to murder this mentally disturbed person? And a numb ber of other readers agree (thumbs up )with that posting? Hmmmm, I don't think I want to be around that group of people when any of them have had a bad day...actually, I made a left hand turn without signaling the other day and heard a couple of what I thought were backfires, do you think it might have been one of them behind me? Maybe it was Kenny...lol..let's hope the legal system does the right thing here short of putting the guy to death...

Should we just wait until he kills her? Aren't there a few subtle and discreet members of the community that can deal with this SOB?
