Joyner, Reach Media Sue Clear Channel

The Chicago Tribune is reporting that Reach Media has  filed a suit against Clear Channel over WVAZ cancellation of the Tom Joyner Morning Show and replacing it with the Steve Harvey Morning Show back in March. The suit filed  by Reach in Texas’ Dallas County District Court, alleges breach of contract by Clear Channel and claims that because the show was dropped without notice, Reach is owed more than $800,000 in affiliation fees and net advertising revenue lost from May until the end of this year.  After being replaced on  WVAZ, where he had been a fixture for 13 years, Joyner reached an agreement to buy time to air his syndicated radio show on Crawford Broadcasting’s WSRB Soul 106.3 where he’s been since April.
