Savage Says He Won Lawsuit Against TRN


Michael Savage will be off the air for "some time" according to his website. He's posted a message that says, "after a grueling legal battle that cost him and his family dearly, Michael Savage can announce he won." Savage filed a lawsuit against TRN in 2010 over his contract and says he is "now free to work with whomever he wishes in the radio industry from this day forward." We've left a message with Savage's attorney to try to get more detail. Late last night Talk Radio network CEO Mark Masters told Radio Ink, “We are all looking forward to announcing a bright future; radio's October Surprise will begin on Monday, October 1st.” More details as we get them.

Late Thursday night, we've reached out to Premiere, Dial Global and Cumulus regarding the possibility of picking up Savage. Nobody had any comment at this time. reported that Savage spent more than $900,000 fighting his case but was awarded more than $1 million in arbitration. The agreement also calls for Savage to be able to obtain all archived tapes of his show. Savage was heard on nearly 400 stations. World Net Daily broke the story Thursday night and it was one of the top headlines on Drudge.

Happy for your victory, sad to not hear your voice and wisdom on the airwaves. Please hurry back! We may lose our country in your absence.
