Radio station sued over computer repairs

By Justin Anderson | Mar 23, 2009

CHARLESTON – The owner of a computer repair company says a popular Charleston radio station still owes him for work on the station's computer systems.

Stacey Landrum, through his business PC Repair, filed a lawsuit against WKLC Inc. and Lynn Martin as its representative on Feb. 24 in Kanawha Circuit Court.

Landrum claims the radio station –- known as "Rock 105" –- owes him $12,152 for work he was hired to do in November 2007.

Landrum, in his complaint, says his agreement with the station called for payment plus an offer of free on-air advertising for his business for up to one-half of the charges for Landrum's services.

Landrum says he's received such free advertising through the station for political content and for charitable purposes, but he claims the station has refused to run ads touting his business.

After Landrum completed the work, he billed the station for $20,152. But he claims he was only paid $2,700 and offered up to $5,000 in free advertising.

He's seeking compensatory and punitive damages, plus legal interest and fees.

Landrum is represented by Guy R. Bucci. The case has been assigned to Kanawha Circuit Judge Jennifer Bailey Walker.
