Mancow's Emotional Distress

This story made my jaw drop yesterday: 'Mancow' Muller sues new radio boss for emotional distress. The gist of the story is that Mancow is upset his new boss is the same as his old boss. As in, the boss that fired him back in his Q-101 days. That boss is Marv Nyron, the new GM of the Cumulus stations in Chicago. From the Tribune article...

The lawsuit says Muller has “suffered both physically and emotionally” since Nyren was named market manager of Cumulus Media Chicago earlier this month, putting him in charge of four stations, including rockers WLUP and WKQX.

“It’s literally making him physically ill,” said Michael Young, a Westchester attorney representing Muller in the lawsuit. “He saw a medical professional last Thursday because of this. It’s absolutely very traumatizing to him to be in this position after everything he went through.”

OK, I suppose the behavior listed in the lawsuit is not very nice behavior (it's actually very bad--if true), but you'll have to forgive every radio producer in the country (probably including Mancow's former producers) for chuckling when they read this.

For us, reading this story was like opening up the newspaper and seeing the headline..."Dog sues man for barking every time the doorbell rings."

This is how I put it on Twitter last night...
