Maybe two weeks ago, I predicted with TRN losing a big chunk of revenue with Cumulus Radio dropping most of their TRN programs, TRN might be very receptive now to ending their contract. Reverend Moon dying may also dry up funding for the ARN news programs.
Despite Savage characterizing it as a historic legal decision, it was nothing of the kind – it was settled in arbitration – two lawyers at a table doing “let’s make a deal” and the arbitrator (who is not a judge) not letting them leave until they have a deal.
What syndicators are left to employ him?
Clear Channel – home of the “hemmeroid with glasses”, “The Golfer” and “the Wall Banger” – only if Bob Pittman has realized Michael Wiener’s real purpose
Cumulus Media – Home of Mark Levin – only if Savage will work for minimum wage and let Mr Dickey control what he says
Dial Global – a pretty good match if Savage stops trying to pretend he’s a Conservative. Look for Thom Hartmann to have a Coming Out Party if this happens.
CBS – possible but unlikely. CBS likes safe.
Radio America – maybe, but he would only be on a few stations
Genesis – the Alex Jones conspiracy network – hmmmm
Savage mentioned in vague terms a few days about having a “scare” but he wouldn’t go into details.
Barring a miracle, it seems unlikely he’ll have a network show before the election. I think the future of TRN without Savage is also not so good. Laura Ingraham can’t carry the network by herself.
A way out of left field possibility is the Masters family (or whoever owns the network would sell it to someone Savage would work for – maybe his son.
