Rob, Arnie And Dawn Stay With Entercom, KRXQ After All

ROB, ARNIE AND DAWN aren't leaving ENTERCOM Active Rock KRXQ (98 ROCK)/SACRAMENTO after all, as the trio's syndicated morning show will remain on the station in the wake of ENTERCOM dropping its lawsuit against the show and inking a five-year renewal deal with WILLIAMS BROADCASTING, INC.
The deal follows the dispute over whether ENTERCOM properly matched a competing offer from CLEAR CHANNEL; ENTERCOM had sued and filed for a temporary restraining order, which was dismissed by U.S. District Court Judge GARLAND E. BURRELL, JR. for lack of subject-matter jurisdiction on FRIDAY (6/27). CLEAR CHANNEL offered, and ENTERCOM attempted to match, a deal that paid the show a $775,000 base plus satellite fees and arranged a custom digital channel, CLEAR CHANNEL with iHEARTRADIO and ENTERCOM with TUNEIN.
