MELBOURNE Demons great David Schwarz is reportedly taking legal action against former employer SEN over the radio station’s summer of carnage.
The Herald Sun reports the 45-year-old has launched a legal claim against the new-look Pacific Star Network — SEN’s parent company — over lost wages and damages to his character.
Schwarz was the highest-profile casualty in the merger between Craig Hutchison’s Crocmedia’s and Pacific Star Network.
After 12 years on radio, Schwarz and his The Run Home co-host Mark Allen were told in December their contracts would not be renewed as part of Hutchison’s bloody clean out of the iconic radio station.
Schwarz said at the time the decision left him “numb”.
Under the direction of Hutchison, SEN replaced Allen and Schwarz with Richmond legend Kevin Bartlett in the afternoon drive-time shift as part of the move to pinch popular broadcaster Gerard Whateley from the ABC.
