US Supreme Court to Talk Radio Network: Pay Savage

The US Supreme Court has refused to hear an appeal from the Roy Masters controlled Talk Radio Network. Michael Savage had tried to leave Talk Radio Network to join Westwood One, but Talk Radio Network tried to stop him claiming it had a right to match any offer Savage might get. An arbitrator ruled that The TRN offer was not as good as the Westwood One offer, and released Savage from his contract and awarded Savage close to a million dollars in attorney fees.

TRN appealed the binding arbitration. They lost. The US Supreme Court has declined to hear the appeal.

Because of the complicated financial relationship between Roy Masters, the Foundation for Human Understanding that owns TRN according to IRS filings, and a number of different corporations designed to financially insulate TRN, the chances of Savage ever seeing a cent are small. Savage also won the right to his show archives. That TRN will have to turn over unless mysteriously they were stored on Hillary’s email server and were wiped.

    Britain’s parliament is voting whether to ban Donald Trump from Britain. That should be good material for Savage’s show this week.

    Ban Donald? What blatant stupidity. We are all God’s children. Some are more of a mystery than others, what clot in the UK thought that his/her opinion outweighs that of the Lord?
