It's been less than 48 hours since EMMIS RADIO filed a breach of contract lawsuit against KURT "BIG BOY" ALEXANDER, morning host at EMMIS Top 40/Rhythmic KPWR (POWER 106)/LOS ANGELES (NET NEWS, 2/3). The suit seeks millions of dollars in damages as well as preliminary and permanent injunctions to block BIG BOY from joining competitor iHEARTMEDIA, and EMMIS has requested a hearing on the motions before BIG BOY's contract expires on FEBRUARY 28th.
ALEXANDER had been quiet on the matter, but has now publically commented on his FACEBOOK page, writing, "God knows I LOVE YOU ALL!!!! Real talk. I MEAN IT! When I can speak, I will speak to YOU. I'm crushed and I do care for you guys. Y'all have shown me so much love and respect throughout the years. We have grown together. Many of you were there when my Mom died, when my babies were born, my marriage, my FAT days, my health scare, just everything. We have laughed and cried together. My LOVE for you isn't just words or ratings. This is bigger than a radio logo. You're my Family. I NEED y'all to survive and be happy. I'm hurt. I'll be able to tell the real ... soon. God bless you all."
