The rumor among the guys that should know and text the sports personalities and also the reporters was that when Jeff Gravely entered into his contract negotiations last year that he expected a nice raise and a good contract. Rating were up. Revenue from sport was up. His personal personna was high.
Well, he supposedly (and I say that based on second hand info....but confirmed from more than one source) was offered a shorter contract for about a 50% pay cut and longer working hours. But other than that, Mr. Darrow, how did the litigation go...?
He is gone. The WRAL staff paid as much tribute to him as they were allowed to without imperiling their positions.
Where he will surface, I know not.
BUT, like another good one, Tom Suiter, he be GONE. Here is the article on him.
Interestingly enough.....he is a little like Tom Suiter....a Vegan. Wonder if his wife is a WCPSS Music Teacher? He does have children. Bob Holliday may be next.....who knows.... The whole station is taking on a new look....https://www.wral.com/chris-lea-to-join-wral-sports-team/18864436/
