Three Eagles Threatens Legal Action Following Listener Complaints
April 13, 2012

Three Eagles Communications-Lincoln has threatened legal action against a listener who complained to the broadcaster's advertisers following a change at Rock KIBZ's morning show. According to the Lincoln Journal Star, Ted Pool had sent emails to KIBZ (The Blaze)'s advertisers to voice his displeasure following the addition of the syndicated Todd N Tyler show earlier this year. As part of the changes, PD and morning co-host Tim Sheridan exited, while his co-host Jon "Animal" Terry segued to middays. Pool and other fans of the former morning show used social media, email writing campaigns and other avenues to complain about the changes and call for a boycott of the Blaze.

However, Pool told the Journal Star that he was "in shock" when Three Eagles' lawyers emailed him in February saying his actions were "tortious" and asked him to "cease and desist from any further contact with Three Eagles' advertisers." The email added that "The extent of the damage which you have caused is not yet known, but Three Eagles intends to hold you responsible for that damage,"

Pool tells the paper, "I didn't think the letter I wrote was threatening. I was just trying to draw attention to the petition and say I wasn't pleased with the content of the new show." Two other Blaze listeners have told the Journal Star that they were sent similar letters from the law firm on behalf of Three Eagles.

Three Eagles President/COO Gary Buchanan declined to comment to the paper, merely saying "this shouldn't be something [the Journal Star] should be concerned with."

Pool and the other listeners said they have complied with the letter as their boycott and protesting has wound down over time anyway.
