The Post quotes insiders at the station who say Wallace was targeted by news director Camille Edwards because of her age.
One insider said: “There are plenty of male journalists who have been there just as long and who don’t have the awards Sarah Wallace has. But Camille was hostile to Sarah, they butted heads, and Sarah was forced out in late February.”
The source added, “Camille Edwards is so tough that her nickname at WABC is ‘Camevil.’ Newsroom morale is at a huge low following Sarah’s departure.”
Wallace has since hired top New York attorney Joe Tacopina, who declined to comment to Page Six on Thursday night.
