EXCLUSIVE TO RICH LIEBERMAN 415 MEDIA--
BARBIERI SETTLES CUMULUS WRONGFUL TERMINATION SUIT FOR $4M!
A source close to Angelia Alioto, the lawyer representing former KNBR Sports host, Ralph Barbieri, told me directly the suit was effectively settled Wednesday afternoon in SF Superior Court.
Barbieri, according to the source, will receive $4 Million, pending normal signing of legal documents and papers pertinent to the case.
The source told me that "Barbieri and his son 'Tate will live comfortably the rest of their life."
Barbieri was fired from KNBRCumulus in April, 2012 after nearly three decades on the air with the all-sports SF Radio outlet. In 2011, months before his firing, he disclosed he was battling early-stages Parkinson's disease.
The source also indicated that Alioto was prepared to continue to pursue the case but was "blown away" by the offer from Cumulus. Ultimately, it was Barbieri who told Alioto that the amount offered was good enough for him to settle.
