*D.L. Hughley’s New York radio show has officially ended, seven months after filing suit against network brass over a pay dispute.
The comedian launched his weekday morning show on New York’s WRKS, 98.7 KISS-FM on July 20 of last year. In January, he partnered with executives at WRKS’ parent company, Emmis Broadcasting, and sued the syndication company URBan Radio, the owners of the D.L. Hughley Morning Show. Hughley claims URBan Radio owes him an estimated $359,000.
URBan Radio Communications fired back with a countersuit against Emmis as talks broke down about who was responsible for paying the actor.
The star continued his show despite the pending litigation – but he has now decided to step down from the job. Hughley handed in his two-week notice at the end of last month, reports BVBuzz.com.
