After Los Angeles radio host Big Boy left Power 106 for iHeartMedia in early 2015, the station sued and a settlement has been reached.
Emmis Radio, Power 106’s parent company, sued the on-air personality for $5 million citing breach of contract and asked that a judge block his move to iHeartMedia. The judge didn’t block his departure, the lawsuit continued and both sides have now agreed to a settlement. Terms were unknown, but both sides paid their own legal fees.
Big Boy is currently on iHeartRadio’s Real 92.3 where he gets $3.5 million a year.
