Will Rover Roll Over -- Across The Street?
February 19, 2008 at 3:16 PM (PT)
ALL ACCESS hipped you MONDAY (2/18) that CBS Alternative WKRK (92.3 K-ROCK)/CLEVELAND morning man ROVER has disappeared from the station's website (NET NEWS 2/18).
TODAY, ROVER posted the following on his personal blog:
"Many people have been emailing me wondering why we haven't posted any info about what's going on or what the future holds for the show.
At this time the show is still under contract to CBS. They've told us we can't talk about it, nor can we discuss what the future holds, or we'll be in breach of contract.
They're also holding the website hostage, saying we can't post anything here in regards to what's going on (who knows, they may even demand this post be removed).
Hang in there. You'll be hearing a lot more of us very soon."
OHIO MEDIA WATCH is reporting unconfirmed, but strongly sourced rumblings, that ROVER has accepted an offer from a competing station. Apparently, he wasn't under the provisions of a non-compete -- as the folks at CBS hoped to sign him to a new contract.
More details as they happen on ALL ACCESS.
