I guess Feinburg is still doing the chump line but someone else doing the Chump Line is like getting a 10 year old
kid to pitch for the Sox in place of Josh Beckett. Just
not the same, folks.
Is there something so utterly different about employment law in the radio world that prohibits a no-longer-contracted person from working for whomever he wants? I am not an attorney (although I did go to law school many years ago), and perhaps someone will shed some light on this subject. If an employment contract contains a contingent clause allowing the employer a right of first refusal and/or the right to match an external offer, why isn't the employee free to accept or reject such an offer at will?
This makes utterly no sense to me. I can understand why WKRO wanted a right to match another company's future offer to Carr, but why would he be bound to accept it? If he explicitly agreed to do so at the time the original employment contract was negotiated, then perhaps he ought to get a new attorney.
