WHY IS POWER 106FM BIG BOY BEING SUED?
Well here we go west coast, our very own radio station host that we all have come to know and love, “Big Boy” is being Sued By Emmis Communications For Breach of Contract. Now if you don’t know who the hell is “Emmis Communications”, they are the media company that owns Los Angeles’ Power 106 FM.
Big Boy is reportedly being sued for breach of contract according to TMZ. There stating that Big Boy had accepted a $3.5M offer from iHeartMedia, and his current contract with Power 106 is for $1.45M. Emmis is claiming that it had the right to match the offer within 60 days of it being tendered, an action which they took. In spite of this matching offer, Big Boy apparently went ahead and accepted the deal from iHeartMedia. Not only is the lawsuit looking for financial damages , but TMZ states that they are seeking for injunctions that block him from departing for iHeartMedia.
Big Boy appears to have responded to the situation on Instagram, stating the following:
“God knows I LOVE YOU ALL! Real talk. I MEAN IT! When I can speak, I will speak to YOU. I’m crushed and I do care for you guys.Y’all have shown me so much love and I respect throughout the years. We have grown together. Many of you were there when my Mom died, when my babies were born, my marriage, my FAT days, my health scare, just everything. We have laughed and cried together. MyLOVE for you isn’t just words or ratings. This is bigger than a radio logo. You’re my Family. I NEED y’all to survive and be happy. I’m hurt. I’ll be able to tell the real….soon. God bless you all.”
