Broadcaster Geraldo Rivera recently announced that he has lost his job at WABC Radio.
Rivera made the announcement in a Facebook post, claiming that Cumulus Media “do not intend to honor the handshake deal I made with the ousted company chief John Dickey, an agreement to extend my current contract for a year.”
“The decision to renege on our deal on the eve of Thanksgiving is especially upsetting coming in the wake of my emotionally charged and highly rated coverage of the Paris massacre and frantic efforts by authorities to bring the perpetrators to justice,” Rivera continued, according to WND.
According to Conservative Tribune, Rivera went on to say that he plans to pursue legal action due to WABC’s “unforgivable disrespect I will fight them and they will end up costing their battered company far more in damages than they expect to save in my salary.”
“We offered Geraldo a new renewal commensurate with the value of his show, which he regretfully chose not to accept,” Chad Lopez, market manager for Cumulus, told Radio Ink. “We wish him the best.”
Though this came as bad news for Rivera, it likely came as very good news to the many conservatives who are sick of watching him slam our beliefs. SHARE this story if you think Geraldo Rivera got what he deserved!
