Eyewitness News Staffer Files Complaint Against His Boss

By Stephanie Tsoflias Siegel 

A WABC news manager is suing his boss, news director Camille Edwards.

According to the NY Daily News, Matthew Lamattina filed a complaint with the New York State Division of Human Rights claiming racial and gender discrimination.

The report says Lamattina believes Edwards favors non-white females in the newsroom.


The complaint says Edwards would not cut Lamattina a break when he needed to stay home with his children.

“It’s more or less because (Lamattina) is a white dad that she has a problem with him,” Rosenberg claimed. “My client is from a dual-working home. His wife works too.”
Lamattina says his mistreatment started in March, when he refused to spend the night in a hotel during a snow storm.

The News reached out to Edwards for comment but didn’t get a response.

Lamattina still works for WABC. He is seeking unspecified damages.
