|Radio Personality Big Boy Being Sued By Former Radio Station For $5 Million.|
Emmis Communications is asking a judge to keep him from bailing on the station and demanding $5 million.
Big Boy was making $1.45 million a year with bonuses and a car, but his contract was set to end at the end of this month.
iHeartMedia offered Big Boy $3.5 million with royalties and perks such as access to a private jet.

On Wednesday morning, the shift that normally holds Big Boy’s slot played music without a Dj.
