|James Dolan, Maggie Gray|
In retaliation for a summer rant by WFAN host Maggie Gray, Dolan’s MSG has ordered all of its businesses across the country to shut down working with Entercom and banned Knicks and Rangers players, as well as MSG broadcasters and personnel, from appearing on the station.
Last week, Gray apologized on-air for the rant’s personal nature, but not for its content. It was too little, too late for the Garden.
MSG owns the Garden and Radio City Music Hall, but has spread the ban on Entercom across the nation, refusing to do business with the radio company in any of its markets, including Chicago and Los Angeles. MSG owns The Chicago Theatre and The Forum in Inglewood, Calif., among other properties.
Entercom offered no comment.
