This report comes to us from Texas but the dispute could arise in Virginia or any other state. A Houston radio talk show host has filed suit against the parent company which owns his station, claiming the station has violated his contract.
The talk show host has asked a Harris County state district court to declare the contract invalid and to prevent CBS Radio from enforcing a non-compete clause that would prevent him from working on air for another station for six months after leaving his current employment (KILT Sports Radio).
At this point we are uncertain of the talk show host’s legal argument but anticipate he will assert that the non-compete provision is overly broad and unenforceable. We will try to follow the developments as this case progress.
