Citadel Broadcasting is the parent company of Birmingham’s WJOX. The station hosts the Paul Finebaum Radio Network each weekday from 2:00 pm to 6:00 pm Central.
The case number shown in the link doesn’t show up on the Federal Court System’s PACER database. But here’s the skinny from Justia:
Finebaum v. Citadel Broadcasting Company

When the case shows up in PACER, I’ll grab the documents and see what’s up. Cases filed under this nature and cause often indicate that someone wants out of a deal. The question is, if the South’s most powerful media figure wants out of his deal with WJOX, where’s he going?
If such a move were to occur, I have an idea about a potential future home.
