August 29, 2012 at 6:34 AM (PT)
YESTERDAY (NET NEWS 8/28), TALK RADIO NETWORK filed suit in U.S. federal court for the Central district of CALIFORNIA against DIAL GLOBAL, alleging that the rival syndicator has violated anti-trust and monopoly laws.
DIAL GLOBAL has responded , with Co-CEO SPENCER BROWN saying, "Despite the comments in Mr. MASTERS' e-mail to the press distributed YESTERDAY in which he announced his company TALK RADIO NETWORKS (TRN) is suing DIAL GLOBAL, at this time, DIAL GLOBAL has not been served a complaint. We have provided outstanding service to TRN for over 10 years and continue to represent several of TRN's programs TODAY. Based on the information contained in the complaint distributed by Mr. MASTERS to the press, which complaint was filed by a law firm run by RON SEVERAID, TRN's own internal legal counsel, we believe the complaint is entirely frivolous. We are confident we will defeat these spurious claims, assuming they are ever heard in a court of law."
