The longtime L.A. radio personality is now free to work for 92.3 during a trial on the matter.

In Los Angeles County Superior Court on Tuesday (March 3), Emmis Radio was denied a preliminary injunction to bar longtime KPWR (Power 106) morning personality Kurt “Big Boy” Alexander from joining crosstown rival iHeartMedia’s KRRL (Real 92.3) until a trial on the matter ends.

The ruling stems from a breach of contract suit that Emmis filed on Feb. 3, seeking no less than $5 million in damages, as well as preliminary and permanent injunctions. On Feb. 10, the court granted Emmis a temporary restraining order — until now.

Following Tuesday’s ruling, Emmis issued this statement: “While Emmis is disappointed with the Court’s ruling and will evaluate our legal options, we are pleased with the Court’s indication that damages are an available remedy at trial. Emmis remains resolute in continuing to protect our legal rights and committed to the continued success of Power 106.”
