I'd bet a $2 bill that something approximating the following conversation has taken or will take place between an increasingly raised-voiced Noory and Tom/Lisa/Premiere/Clear Channel management:
Noory: Knapp is bringing down the tone of the show. He has to go.
Goon: What do you mean, George?
Noory: Look, he's just a bad fit. I don't want him in the roster anymore.
Goon: What about Sunday nights?
Noory: We'll give them to John. Just make it simple, let him have the weekends and keep me on the weekdays. We don't need Knapp.
Goon: Well, we have a contract--
Noory: Look, he goes or *I* go, understand? I want him gone. (increase histrionics ad infinitum)
Vary the words however you like; I've said for a long time that Knapp is the next to go, and I stand by that statement. And he's going to make that happen faster by continuing to do an excellent job. But of course, being the man of integrity I believe him to be, he will continue to do an excellent job to the end, even if he knows he's going out.
Noory is an insecure ego-hound who doesn't like being shown up. Ian is a nonentity at this point. Art is gone, Wells is a total tool, and Simone (who is actually less offensive than Noory or Wells) will do the occasional fill-in as a lark.
Anyone want to take the bet? I got a fresh crisp $2 bill right here.
