Report: $4 million settlement for Ralph Barbieri versus Cumulus

Friday, September 13, 2013

Longtime sports broadcaster Ralph Barbieri, the “Razor” in the former “The Razor and Mr. T” duo (with Tom Tolbert), who was let go by KNBR radio last year, has reportedly settled his wrongful termination lawsuit against the station. Blogger Rich Lieberman, citing sources close to Barbieri’s attorney, Angela Alioto, says that radio colossus Cumulus, which owns the sports talk station, offered $4 million and that Barbieri accepted. Barbieri, you may recall, revealed that he had been diagnosed with early stage Parkinson’s disease not long before his contract was up and before the station let him go. Maybe not a winning place to be, if you’re a corporate giant seen as hammering an ill, well-known sports voice in front of a local jury.
