I know we mainly listen to Highway 98 Country and NASH over here in Okaloosa County, but Cat Country in Pensacola is huge! They were even named the 2017 Radio Station of the Year by the Country Music Association (CMA).
Over the weekend, however, a former radio personality at the station released a video
claiming harassment at the hands of management.
That personality is Jenna Scott (real name Jordan Soto).
Soto (let’s just refer to her as her real name now) did traffic and mid-days at the station and was very active on her own “Jenna Scott” Facebook page as well as Cat Country’s other social channels. She would regularly post videos that racked up thousands and thousands of views and had amassed a fan base of her own.
On December 1, she released a new video
under her real name describing situations that allegedly went down at the radio station. On her Facebook post she writes,
A lot of you may have known me as Jenna Scott; I formerly hosted a show on a locally owned radio station. I’ve decided to no longer be afraid of the company I used to work for, move forward, make a change, and stand up against toxic working environments.
If you or someone you know returns home from work feeling worthless, angry, belittled, harassed, and like a complete wreck - you or they need to leave that environment. It is not worth pouring your soul and life into a job that does not respect you; It not only effects you but your family and friends as well.
You have a purpose in life - and it is not to serve a company that lacks leadership, abuses power, and suppresses you. It is to contribute, share your ideas, develop, and grow with a team. There are so many great leaders out there who would love for you to be part of their team - go find them and prevail.
I no longer have access to any of my social media accounts - in a last attempt to suppress me and take my voice away, they were seized from me.
I hope each and everyone of you can find your voice, stand up against toxic work environments, corrupt leadership, sexism, and not let it go unnoticed. Please share this video as it might be that final push someone needs to make a change and get their life back.
According to the Northwest Florida Daily News
, Soto, said an already uncomfortable work environment for her became even more so a month ago when she announced her intention to leave Cat Country.
She starts a morning show job Monday in Fort Collins, Colorado.
