Thank you for explaining in more detail. It still seems like RKO is cutting off their nose to spite their face, but worse management decisions have been made. I would love to have been a fly on the wall when Howie confronted the lawyer who wrote such a contract. I hope RKO either decides to give him more support or else lets him go ahead of time. This is not the way a talented person should be forced to work.
Sadly, WRKO will do neither, 1) they will NEVER let him out of his contract early... they need the money he brings in and 2) They will continue to rub Howies nose in it because they are ticked that he wants to bail from their onerous management and habitual hiring of felons to do their talk shows... Felon Finneran is a real life sleezy politician/convict and yet he has his own show giving advice and commentary on a daily basis... BLECH.
