A former CBS46 meteorologist filed a lawsuit against his former employer accusing former co-anchor Sharon Reed of making racist and sexist statements while on the air.

In court documents Paul Ossmann claims he was subjected to racist and ageist statements by African American co-anchor, Sharon Reed, and/or Thomas Roberts, a Caucasian co-anchor, age 46.

The lawsuit was filed in federal court in Atlanta on July 12. Ossmann accused his former employer of fostering a "racially hostile work environment."

Ossmann's attorney states Reed referred to Mr. Ossmann as a "white dog" and "a POS" or "piece of shit" while on the air.

"These comments went viral and caused Plaintiff significant humiliation, pain and suffering. This created a hostile work environment for Mr. Ossmann at [CBS46], especially when Meredith took no action against Reed and/or Thomas Roberts, his co-anchors.

Further, Reed in response to a viewer complaint of Reed's race baiting, used the word 'nigger' on the air, during a broadcast, in violation of multiple [CBS46] policies and her contract. Reed's use of the word 'nigger' was broadcast to hundreds of thousands of viewers in the Atlanta."

Ossmann, 62, was employed at CBS46 first as meteorologist and then as chief meteorologist, after his promotion, according to court documents.

Ossmann was suspended in April of this year for allegedly making an inappropriate comment to a co-worker.

On April 8, 2018, Ossmann was terminated by Vice President and General Manager of CBS46, Lyle Banks, who is Black.

Ossmann had two years left on his contract when he was fired. Reed no longer works at the station.

    Sorry. I done seen too many news anchors get fired. I think she got fired. I dont think she ¨just didnt get contract renewed¨. I dont follow her. Bc I only follow my local news folks or folks with NC news ties. Nicole Carr where YA AT girl!!! Anyways... my spidey and news senses say she was sent on her way. He was too. Somewhere is some kinda truth. BUT I dont think she was dumb enough to be fooling with whitey mayo up top far as harassment or anything. She went to Georgetown. She SMART. Imma have to look into some shit

  • ihadheard

    I heard that she has a son that's the alleged child by Lebron....she doesn't show him on social media ... the boy is much younger than the daughter

  • CardiB’sAbs

    XO is a “fine dining” restaurant

  • MARILYN

    Not true the daughter is about the age of lebron’s daughter about 5ish, there’s no younger son after that little girl, she also addressed that situation and showed pictures of her daughter, the guy that own XO’s, her daughter look just like him

  • MARILYN

    A very high in restaurant downtown Cleveland, very popular as well, Lebron and other athletes hang in there

  • CookieMobster

    Black people can certainly be racists. Any time you have disparaging thoughts or make disparaging comments about a whole race of people, that is BEING RACIST. You obviously have disdain for the what race, and that friend is racist.

  • luVn_liFe…

    the lil girl,Ava looks nothing like Bron or suri and yeah she looks like she can be mixed

  • Kimberly King

    You obviously can't read. Whites are not humans. They're animals. And I said what I said. Black people cannot be racist. We don't have that type of power because in 2019 we are still being oppressed in many ways, shapes, and forms. But that's okay. The natural order will be restored one of these days. We all know who ran sh*t before those THIEVING animals came along. So eat my entire, gorgeous ass. K? Thankkkkksssss! ?

    Where's the viral videos... I wanna see those

  • Renee26

    She might bottle it for you for a $35 fee...

  • GAPeach

    It's not a matter of her being his legal parent, or having custody. It's just to stake her claim in the estate. He is an heir, and he's a minor. She has to establish the fact that she is his guardian, so that he can get what it rightfully due to him. Probate laws are not even remotely close to anything that would have to deal with custody, etc.

    Why didn't he say anything before he was fired for making inappropriate comments to another co-worker.

    As a parent she has guardianship of his person... not necessarily guardianship of his estate (finances).

    guhl, my whole house is sleep while I'm still sipping on wine... husband, two year old, and 13 year old. I have no idea if Lebron had a break baby and I'm glad Savannah is a confident women not worried about my drunk ass. Can someone confirm or deny my drunken blog comment?

    We can’t be racist????? That crakka better move on

  • T Willis

    Yep.

  • T Willis

    Discriminators and prejudice but not racists. Racism is prejudice + power. Blacks are minorities and yield no power to inflict their prejudices onto society. White ppl are also prejudicial and discriminatory, but they are the majority and yield power to enforce their discrimination into society

    Sounds about yt

  • free

    exhausting.

  • free

    that baby look like she is from a YT man although she did look like bron when she was little. i heard it was from some coach or something in the league. i notice she never showed a pic or talked about the dad so i think she was riding the lebron rumor train. i heard everybody in cleveland believes its bron's though.

  • free

    it was cray in cleveland. she was kinda forced to resign from the tv station there. when she came to atlanta, ryan cameron asked her about it and she was coy with her answer. i haven't seen the little girl in a while but she kinda came off as being from a white guy to me.

  • KLove

    I dont know about the name calling on air, but I distinctly remember her saying the "N" word on air, when addressing a viewer who referred to her as that in an email or something.

    I tried to follow this story, but either I put too my coffee in the pot this morning and my eyes are moving too fast to blink with God... or there isn't enough meat in this story. All the scrolling back and forth to see, "wait... which one is Reed again - the black lady, or the white man...?" was too much scrolling, so y'all let me know the out come, hear?

  • EasyBreezy

    Wayment! Reed DID say the n-word on the air and here's why. She was responding to a racist email she received. She READ the contents of the email on the air.... she commented on the email, stated she will continue to report the news.....and moved on.. She garnered local praise for putting it out there. What's really going on? https://media3.giphy.com/media/MmCXbxE9Hg1mo/giphy.gif

  • GAPeach

    I agree. My MIL passed 2 years ago, and we are FINALLY about to reconcile everything within the next month. Most of the delay was due to his sister doing some seriously crazy stuff, and them having to sue her though.

    Lol. I didn't notice either one was gone.

    lol I had to do a double take too, I was getting a little lost Reed is the woman.

    White are way more tribal than blacks. Look at the composition of the Republican party.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Go back and read.
    It said that Ossmann was subjected to racist and ageist comments from and/or the white anchor.
    I guess they meant ageist comments.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Because accusing a celebrity will bring you a lot of hate and heartache.

    The same reason that the friend of Jean Carroll told her not to go to the police.

    Omg hit dogs will holler. This is her belief and trying to insult her only proves her point.

    same shit in my family. had to sue one of the siblings. i think most of them reconciled with her but she did some dirty shit. i'm just a spouse and i ain't really forgive her for what she did.

  • Ryan

    Fired by a black man. I know from experience he is REAL salty about that. Most of the time they will try to sue. But almost never succeed cause HR has the receipts, LOL

  • Mz_Opinionated

    I thought I was alone...I was like "Crickets" What?

  • GAPeach

    I won't EVERRRRRR speak to her again. She was really grimy. She literally falsified documents and put my MIL's house in her name, even though their mom had a WILL stating it needed to be sold. She won't show up to court anymore, because the probate judge told her that they were going to arrest her.

    LolSharon was never afraid to speak her mind regarding topics reported on the time segment that she was on air. Personally I thought she was not only beautiful BUT unapologetic tactful with her thoughts and def was worth watching. Even when ole girl died from a massive stroke (and was a recovering alcoholic) Sharon was like, “ there are many fake people who are news anchors calling her OUR friend but they really weren’t.”

    According toThomas Roberts, the anchor Sharon Reed was trading notes with, Reed referred to him as a "white dog" and a "POS." Roberts claims POS was short for Paul Ossmann, but he didn't explain the "white dog" reference. Maybe this is behind Reed's departure.
