Los Angeles radio personality Big Boy will launch his new morning show on iHeartMedia’s Real 92.3 next Monday, March 9. He’ll be joined by veteran Vick One, who will serve as the show’s official DJ.
The longtime host is currently engaged in a legal battle with Emmis Radio, the owner of his former station, Power 106. The company filed a breach of contract suit on February 3, seeking no less than $5 million in damages, as well as preliminary and permanent injunctions.
Big Boy had been barred from working at Real 92.3 after the Los Angeles County Superior Court granted Emmis a temporary restraining order. However, the court denied Emmis a preliminary injunction on Tuesday (March 3) to prevent Big Boy from joining Real 92.3 until a trial on the matter ends.
Following Tuesday’s ruling, Emmis issued this statement: “While Emmis is disappointed with the Court’s ruling and will evaluate our legal options, we are pleased with the Court’s indication that damages are an available remedy at trial. Emmis remains resolute in continuing to protect our legal rights and committed to the continued success of Power 106.”
Big Boy also issued a statement: “You can’t imagine how psyched and ready I am to show my listeners — my family — what we’ve got planned at Real 92.3. iHeartMedia 100 percent gets what I’ve been doing for over 20 years and together we’re going to take it to the next level. Love and gratitude to my listeners. You all mean everything to me, and I’ll see you real soon.”
