If you tuned in last week to hear Michael Savage here on News Talk 1230 you might have noticed he wasn't on the air. As it turns out, it wasn't a vacation for him.
As Savage noted on his website, he and his former employer have parted ways after a two year legal battle:
AFTER A GRUELING LEGAL BATTLE THAT COST HIM AND HIS FAMILY DEARLY, MICHAEL SAVAGE CAN ANNOUNCE HE WON! HE IS FREE AT LAST. FREE TO WORK WITH WHOMEVER HE WISHES IN THE RADIO INDUSTRY FROM TODAY FORWARD. MICHAEL WILL NOT BE HEARD ON THE RADIO FOR SOME TIME
What that means for you is that Savage is off the air here at News Talk 1230, and everywhere for that matter, until further notice. We don't know when or if he'll be back on and in what form.
For the time being, Jerry Doyle, who's been a part of the Saturday night lineup at News Talk 1230 for quite some time, will take over Savage's slot. Jerry is an outstanding talent and was most recently the 6th most listened to talk show in the country.
Once we have a permanent solution to our lineup changes we'll let you know. Thanks for your patience and please understand this was all out of our control and was not a decision made locally or by the company.
