In his piece, Del Colliano claims:
  • He has the dirty details of contract negotiations that went so wrong and led to Shannon’s “retirement”.
  • How Cumulus tried to whack his salary – take it or leave it.
  • Allegations that Shannon may have also been knifed in the back on the way out the door by someone close.
  • Which New York radio station that secretly made a run at Shannon.
