In OCTOBER (NET NEWS 11/11/11) UNITED STATIONS RADIO NETWORKS' syndicated LEX AND TERRY show was dropped by SEVEN BRIDGES RADIO Sports WJXL (1010 XL)/JACKSONVILLE. Now, the duo have filed suit, claiming that the station improperly canceled the contract that would have paid them hundreds of thousands of dollars.
JACKSONVILLE.COM reports "the contract called for the station to pay about $800,000 plus bonuses for the right to air the show. The payment was to be $12,500 every two weeks throughout 2012 and 2013. The contract also included bonuses for ratings and half of all advertising dollars above the $1 million mark this year."
There was nothing in the contract that allowed the station to break it, attorney JOHN PHILLIPS told JACKSONVILLE.COM. "I don’t know what they were thinking, They won’t return my calls. They said listeners wanted to hear sports rather than a shock jock sort of thing, but they knew what LEX AND TERRY's show was. If you buy a car, you can't take it back three months later because you don't like the color."
