Remember: when it wasn't popular nor wise only Howard Cosell publically backed Muhammed Ali's refusal to go fight in Vietnam.
We haven't heard that much in all the post-mortem Ali stories but it needs to be told.
Ali remembered and was one of Cosell's closest friends and confidants --their "feuds" were mostly shtick.
*KNBR is a non-union station; some of its staffers tried a few years back to form a union; Cumulus would have nothing of it and most of KNBR's high-profile air talent not only stifled efforts, but went on-air and poo-pooed it.
Yes, the biggest anti-union guy is Gary Radnich himself who lambasted the local SAG-AFTRA as "group hustlers". His partner, Larry Krueger, also put a dagger, on-air, into the idea of a producer/reporter having the gall to attempt to get the union going. After that, union activity went bye-bye and now you have a lot of people at Knibber making minimum wage.
So while Mr. Bentley brags about his wheels and daily jokes about $3000 brake jobs, those under him have to work multiple jobs, like driving for Uber, just to make ends meet.
One BIG anti-union guy? Brian Murphy, the morning mutt who pimps for "Rich Uncles."
