A decision by Fox 2 to abruptly suspend reporter M.L. Elrick's successful weekly podcast, "Soul of Detroit," is shrouded in mystery.

There is no mystery here, the new boss didn't want Elrick working for a competing local media platform.

Unless it is specifically forbidden in his contract do they really have a say in what he does on his own time? I take it that would fall under some sort of "Non-Compete" language?

It was carried on Drew Lane's "Red Shovel Network". WRIF also made Bentley quit the podcast. As stated above, I don't think they like the competition

I saw a few weeks ago on Fox2 on the Elrick segment he was on his podcast investigating the Kwame parties at the Manoogian and the death of that stripper.He said on there that he was getting some threats about the investigation.

Maybe things were getting too hot..........????

I never understood why they had a weekly segment on Fox 2 with his podcast. I always thought it was free advertisement for him and the segment was always cheesy/stupid.

Guys like Elrick and Leduff really get me. They come across as smug assholes,in love with their own work. They try to be cool but just come across as douchy.
