SAN FRANCISCO media blogger RICH LIEBERMAN is reporting that CUMULUS Talk KNBR-A/SAN FRANCISCO and morning co-host RALPH BARBIERI have reached agreement on a new deal that will keep "THE RAZOR" on the station for an undisclosed term.
BARBIERI told LIEBERMAN that his contract expited NOVEMBER 1st and that "I'm happy it's done." He also said that his disclosure in OCTOBER (NET NEWS 10/6) that he is battling Parkinson's disease, released through an interview with the SAN FRANCISCO CHRONICLE's SCOTT OSTLER, was intended to "get it out and in the open. I didn't want it to become rumor fodder."
