New York State bans non-compete clauses in contracts

(Credit: Watchdog)

I promised to stop posting stuff about "Mike and the Mad Dog" until I had something concrete to report.

Maybe this counts. It's at least interesting. Three people e-mailed Friday to alert me to the fact the governor of New York had signed a bill banning non-compete clauses in the broadcast business.

You might remember that Chris Russo has said his contract with WFAN runs through April, with another six months after that during which he is not allowed to appear on another station. Now that's a moot point. He's free in April.

Will that make it easier for him to get out of his contract early to jump to Sirius if he so chooses? I don't know. Yet. (I'm not sure what the status of Mike Francesa's deal is.)

That's all for now. Sorry for the interruption.
