Carr Loses Bid To Work At WTKK While Appeals Pend
October 29, 2007 at 1:58 PM (PT)
HOWIE CARR has lost yet another round in court in his quest to leave ENTERCOM Talk WRKO-A/BOSTON to join crosstown GREATER MEDIA Talk WTKK, this time losing a bid to work at WTKK while his appeals make their way through the court. In addition, Judge ANDREW GRAINGER stopped CARR from appealing his case to the full Appeals Court, calling CARR's case "not one of those extraordinary cases that warrant appellate consideration prior to full judgment. ... In these circumstances, there is no good reason for opening the door to mulitiple appeals when the issues may all be argued together as the conclusion of the case." ENTERCOM has won every round of the case so far, with the courts upholding a right-to-match clause in CARR's contract.
GREATER MEDIA issued a statement saying, "We respect the Court's decision, but we continue to believe that HOWIE CARR should be able to work for the station he chooses. We are keeping all options open as we decide how to move forward."
