I would assume theres some form of exit clause in his contract, perhaps he made it so air tight that they have to pay him his complete salary no matter if he's on the air or not.
I'm sorry I wasn't more clear. The vibes I was referring to wasn't anything he said on air. I haven't listened to him for yrs. It was this:
We’re starting something new today. A PODCAST! Some of the show will be prerecorded and some live. The live portion will stream at 11:00am cdt (noon Cincinnati EDT) and your calls are welcome.
The phone number is WGN’s old number 312-591-7200. When you call you will go directly on hold and hear the stream. There is no call screener and for now I’m experimenting with how to best put it together. The show will then stream in it’s entirerty at 3:00pm cdt (4pm EDT).
I typed this whole damn thing myself believe it or not. Just part of my commitment to the listening public. Talk to you later. Mike Mc
Chicagoradioandmedia says WGN-AM made the move “after months and years of rumors and unfavorable comments from listeners.” The WGN-2 stream ”is the same, rarely used stream that WGN Radio utilizes when it has a two live sporting events or programming conflicts happening simultaneously. It can be heard via the WGN website, via the updated WGN Radio mobile app, or by calling the station and asking to be put on hold. However, sometimes clicking on the WGN-2 stream will still bring up the main WGN-AM stream, making hearing the WGN-2 programming difficult.”
Tell me what you think...
