Howie Carr Loses Appeal
October 16, 2007 at 9:08 AM (PT)
HOWIE CARR loses another round in his legal battle to jump from ENTERCOM Talk WRKO-A/BOSTON to crosstown GREATER MEDIA'S Talk WTKK, as SUFFOLK SUPERIOR COURT Judge ALLAN VAN GESTEL denied CARR's motion to reverse an earlier decision upholding a right-to-match provision in his WRKO contract.
But VAN GESTEL, in a seven-page ruling, also denied ENTERCOM'S request for a preliminary injunction to bar GREATER MEDIA from talking to CARR or to make public statements about him for five years. The ruling means that ENTERCOM's matching of GREATER MEDIA'S deal with CARR is now effective, pending appeals.
