LEX 18 parts ways with Lee Cruse

LEX 18 decided to part ways with longtime TV personality Lee Cruse, following controversial remarks Cruse made on air earlier this month.

A statement from the station:

After careful consideration, WLEX has decided to part ways with Lee Cruse.

WLEX is committed to reflecting our diverse audiences through our coverage and to upholding equitable, diverse and inclusive practices in our workplaces.

We wish Lee the best in his future endeavors.

LEX 18 general manager Pat Dalbey said, “This wasn’t a decision made lightly. LEX 18 is committed to reflecting our diverse audiences through our coverage and to upholding equitable, diverse, and inclusive practices in our workplace. We stand by our commitment to a respectful work environment and respect for all of our viewers.”

Cruse was at LEX 18 for almost 25 years.
