LOS ANGELES (AP) — TV personality Colleen Dominguez alleges that Fox Sports 1, her employer for more than a year, was guilty of age and gender discrimination when it withheld assignments and refused to air those she initiated on her own.

In a complaint filed Wednesday in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California, Dominguez claims she was hired as a key sports personality with experience in most major sports.

Fox Sports 1, in an email from Vice President Dan Bell, said the company was declining comment.

Dominguez, 54, worked for NBC Network News from 1996 to 2003, for ESPN from 2003 to 2014. Ten months before her contract with ESPN expired, she said she was recruited by Fox and she signed a contract with them on March 1, 2014.
