Tony Bruno claims WIP owes him $30,000

Back in July, longtime radio host Tony Bruno resigned from hosting the afternoon drive slot with Josh Innes, claiming that he was retiring from terrestrial radio. After Bruno was replaced on Innes’ show by Spike Eskin and Hollis Thomas, the story seemed like it was in the past. Well, not according to Bruno:

Bruno spoke to Crossing Broad, and he claims that WIP operations manager Andy Bloom didn’t pay him a number one ratings bonus because they had never had a contract, just a letter of intent. Here is part of what he told Kyle Scott:

“I signed my letter of intent in February. Bloom never gave me final, executed contract. [Bloom] claims I had no deal, yet paid me everything agreed in letter of intent except ratings bonus.”

“I warned Bloom my next move was taking this public. He defers to CBS legal. Tired of taking the high road to help others succeed… guy is protecting his own butt at my expense.”
