Brother Wease Negotiations Breaking Down?
January 11, 2008 at 5:43 AM (PT)
It's looking less and less like BROTHER WEASE will return to the airwaves on ENTERCOM Classic Rock WCMF/ROCHESTER, NY, reports WHEC-TV (NEWS 10). WEASE has been off the air since last month in a contract dispute with WCMF'S new owners (NET NEWS 1/3).
Last week both WEASE and the management at ENTERCOM said they were "90%" sure they could agree on a new contract.
Things took an unprecedented turn today after a management level executive from ENTERCOM went on the "Radio Free WEASE Show" this morning and cast doubt on inking a new deal. Phone calls to ENTERCOM's local offices for comment were not returned.
When reached for comment, WEASE told NEWS10 he was "stunned" to hear the comments on the radio, then refused to comment further on the advice of his agent and legal counsel.
