Popular Alabama radio host Paul Finebaum’s contract with WJOX just ended and he’s not renewing. Finebaum and WJOX have been at odds for quite a while now and since he’s a free agent he was available to go elsewhere.
That’s exactly what he’s done.
Finebaum is moving from Cumulus Broadcasting to 97.3 The Zone, a Cox Communications property. The kicker is that Finebaum has a non-compete clause in his contract that extends for 3 months.
Luckily for Bama fans that enjoy listening to callers ranting for hours, that 3 months will end just about the right time to get them all worked up about football.
Meanwhile, back on WJOX, the show “The Roundtable” will move to Finebaum’s afternoon slot.
