But a substitute host showed up in his time slot this week without an explanation as to why. On his blog (which is normally dormant), Davis started firing off the equivalent of "random thoughts" this week which I thought was odd. He certainly wasn't on one of his many vacations. Then moments ago he released the above statement explaining his absence. His contract ran out and "we have been unable to reach an agreement on a renewal". What does that mean? Does he want more money and Cumulus said no? Or does the owner want to cut his salary and he's balking? Remember Belo cut Dale Hansen's salary and he gladly accepted it. And also remember that Cumulus, which owns KLIF, let go a morning talk show host on that station just two weeks ago. Throw in the fact that Mike Huckabee is about to launch a new syndicated show which is perfect for WBAP, and I don't know what to think.
The media, it is a-changin'.
