CUMULUS Sports WRIE-A (ESPN RADIO 1260 THE SCORE)/ERIE afternoon host MIKE "CHICO" BORMANN has exited the station, and he told the ERIE TIMES-NEWS that his departure was due to the station's unwillingness to negotiate a better salary.
BORMANN told the paper he was being paid $40 a day for the show, which he had hosted for the station since moving there from crosstown WFNN-A (1330 THE FAN) in 2007. "As I told a buddy of mine," BORMANN said of $40 a day, "that's a nice name for a show on The FOOD NETWORK, but it's tough to make a living that way."
GM JIM RILEY did not comment on the salary situation but said that the station would continue to air a local show in the afternoon time slot.
