It's merely rumor, but it's heating up and making the rounds. (UPDATE BELOW)
Ralph Barbieri to, 'perhaps', land a gig over at 95.7 FM, The Game. A few people have whispered it to me and insist they're talking.
Something is brewing because I got a whiff of info, (non radio-related) from a person very close to Barbieri earlier on Friday. The person chose not to go into specifics...on anything.
One thing is clear: If Ralphie somehow migrated to The Game, there's nothing to lose. Particularly for the Game as it stands hopeless now trying very hard to move a needle that badly needs to be moved. And Ralph, apparently out of the potential, "let me go to court" and make my case against Cumulus and Knibber, (which, at best, would be years away with a 1 in 10 chance of winning) smelling for a new gig.
So, don't be shocked if the Razor, 4.0 were to work a deal over at the FM outpost. They have nothing to lose. And Ralph has everything to gain...less his Cumulus indoor parking spot at 55 Hawthorne. I'm sure Entercom could work something out for him in that arena.
UPDATE: 8: 31 PDT:
The Game just announced that Barbieri will appear Monday at 5 PM to "tell his side of the story." May or may not mean anything, but don't be surprised if they use it to ...(guess)
