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.

She must not have done a background check on him! This company should be supporting her, its just cheaper to fire her!

I Hope nobody listens to the station until she gets her job back, it is people like them that get the women killed that have stalkers or crazy exes.

If you worked at this business and your life was in danger because of some nut job ex of another employee you wouldnt want to be there if this guy came gunning for her. Her ex is certainly capable of killing whoever to get to her. The station made the right move for the safety of the other workers. However once her ex is in jail for a long time they should rehire her.

The action of her company is despicable. It is morally reprehensible.

And in the meantime, and as per usual, the cops REALLY CAN'T DO ANYTHING, 'CAUSE HE REALLY HASN'T KILLED HER YET.

Damn. What a country we live in. 'Rule of Law' my ass.

You know you have too many damne3d lawyers when a jerk like George Lane can intimidate , not just a person, but a Company with impunity. She needs to get herself armed and be prepared to defend herself by any means necessary.

This sounds like a bad police call. He wasn't even arrested. Obviously, someone is protecting him; someone with a lot of power.

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.

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

He must have a bad case of affluenza. In any case he needs to be put down.

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
