JOHNSTOWN, CAMBRIA COUNTY--- Former Rocky 99 and Froggy 95 radio personality Nancy Lane was fired, she says because of her estranged husband.

“It has been a traumatic week,” said Lane.

Lane known to the public as “Daisy or Lexi” was on two radio stations owned by Forever Broadcasting.  On Tuesday she says she was terminated because of things her soon to be ex- husband George Lane did.

“The papers clearly state because of my estranged husband,” said Lane.

Nancy left George Lane last summer after he allegedly burnt the couples Portage home down.  Since then he has been supposedly terrorizing her, sending threats to her and her station in Westmont.  He even allegedly hired someone to slash the tires of employees and company cars.  Lane said she endured years of abuse.

“I never understood what women who are abused go through until I went through it,” said Lane.  “You wonder every day of your life what’s next?”

George was arrested again in January after impersonating a police chief and remains in the Cambria County Jail.

Officials with the District Attorney’s Office said they could not comment on the case because it is still an active investigation.

Lane said coming forward to the public about everything is not easy, but she hopes her story will help someone else.

‘Yes, I am going through the worse time of my entire life,” said Lane.  “But if this story can help make another employer understand what it’s like for someone in an abusive situation – and not fire them because over it, then it’s worth it.”

WTAJ News reporter Danielle Krout asked Lane if she had anything to say to the company that fired her; she said “no comment.”

Forever Broadcasting was contacted for a statement but never returned any messages.

A Facebook group in support of Lane and against her being fired was created, thousands have joined.

“It means a lot to see all of these people come forward and show support- more than they know.”
