Cumulus Non-Compete Fight Continues in Michigan


The ugliness between Cumulus management at WHNN and former morning hosts Johnny Burke and Blondie continued in federal court yesterday. The station is accusing Burke of violating a non-compete by starting an Internet show after the station fired him. Burke and Blondie allege age discrimination for being fired.

M-Live reports that Operations Manager Scott Stine testified that the two hosts stole bits and advertiser information from the station and broadcast an April Fools Day remote from the station parking lot. The trial has been going on since May.
