West coast radio personality Big Boy is trying to leave his homestead Power 106.1 but its parent company, Emmis Communications, isn’t having it.

Big Boy has been with Emmis over two decades but his contract will be ending soon. Emmis said they would be more than happy to renew it but it turns out that Big Boy wants to jump ship and work for their competitor, iHeartMedia.

While hosting his Big Boy’s Neighborhood morning show, he was reportedly making $1.45 million a year and received bonuses and a car, but iHeartMedia is offering to pay him $3.5 million and spoil him with more perks, including access to a private jet. Emmis matched their offer in efforts to keep him, but Big told them that he’s leaving anyway.

Emmis is now taking this matter to the courts and has asked a judge for an order to prevent Big Boy from leaving. They are also suing him for $5 million.

You can't force someone to sign a contract. I'm not sure where Emmis thinks they are going with this.

They should just let him go. It would be so awkward if they won & then have to see the guy every morning.

On top of that, they would eventually have to let him go anyways from a business perspective. Assuming Big Boy is coerced into going back to work each morning, what are they going to do when he remains silent during a broadcast? Are they going to put a gun to his head and force him to talk?

 

Emmis would lose a lot of money if Big Boy remained silent or spoke in a monotone voice. It makes little sense to go through that, other than to temporarily draw in attention. In the long term though, it could be a big mistake.
