Skip to comments.Savage wins historic legal battle against radio syndicator (off radio for now?)
Posted on 09/27/2012 5:53:00 PM PDT by dynachrome
Top-rated talk-radio host Michael Savage announced today he has won his legal battle to free himself from his syndicator, the Talk Radio Network, and can negotiate with a new network.
He said he will not be heard on the radio for some time but will continue to update his website and produce a free daily newsletter.
As WND reported, Savage sued TRN in December 2010 regarding his contract, alleging the network used illegal and unenforceable contract provisions and other strong-armed tactics to intimidate him and force him into accepting a sub-standard agreement.
The federal case was referred to arbitration.
Savages lawyer, Daniel Horowitz, told WND that Savage was awarded money damages and complete freedom from TRN. He declined to disclose the amount but said it was seven figures.
Savage has been given ownership of his show, according to Horowitz, which means he will be off the air until he signs a contract with a new syndicator.

I want a refund, TRN!
Here’s another radio industry about Savage’s win. Also his former syndicator TRN says they’ve got an “October surprise.”
Kuhner is darn good-savage’s replacement? sounds good to me
Hope they hire Kuhner.
I agree with you wholeheartedly. His constant bashing of Rush and "the Leprechaun" were over the top for an alleged conservative. And it should be noted that neither Rush, the Leprechaun or other conservative talk show hosts ever retaliated in kind nor ever mentioned his name.
I suspect that it was the fact that they ignored him that fueled his anger towards them.......
I cannot stand Kuhner’s speech pattern. It bothers me to no end. UptherewithRitaCosby.
