  • An attorney representing a Fargo TV station being sued by a former anchorwoman says a settlement has been reached.
    Attorney Gina Janeiro tells The Forum (http://bit.ly/XTMbVQ ) that details will be released jointly later Thursday.
    Robin Huebner was 49 when she was removed from the 10 p.m. KXJB-KVLY newscast and replaced with a woman about half her age. In a federal lawsuit, she accused station parent Hoak Media of age discrimination, saying the demotion was an attempt to get her to quit.
    Hoak maintained the station had a right to make programming changes to stay competitive.
    U.S. District Judge Ralph Erickson recently entered a ruling in favor of Hoak and dismissed part of the case that based on federal claims. The suit remained active on claims based on state law.
