Irv Homer's greeting to his new bosses

Here's a telling anecdote about the late radio giant.

Irv Homer's greeting to his new bosses

Radio icon Sid Mark relates a story about Irv Homer that says so much about the contrarian talk-show host, who died Wednesday at age 85:

After WWDB was sold to Beasley Broadcast Group in 1997, the talk station's employees were called into a meeting with new owners Bruce and Brian Beasley.

When asked if workers had any questions, it was Homer who was the only one to raise his hand.

Homer identified himself and said: “There are two of you here. Who signs the checks, because I’m only going to kiss one ass."
