Todd Shapiro Spills More Details on Split from 102.1 the Edge

Todd Shapiro Spills More Details on Split from 102.1 the EdgeTodd Shapiro debuted his new show this morning on Sirius XM 168. You can hear it all on his awesome new website.

Although he revealed quite a bit in his interview with me last month, he spilt more beans on his show today about his split from 102.1 the Edge.

Here's a bit of what he revealed during an interview with Slutty Siri (NSFW).

"You will no longer be required to perform your on-air duties", after making a mystery complaint to management. And then completely wiped off the website, email account closed, etc.

You can pretty much connect the dots based on what he just revealed. Seeing as their is obviously no love loss between Todd and Dean, the "incident" Todd refers to had something to do with him and Dean not seeing eye to eye. Once he expressed his concerns to Corus management they would have went to Dean to get his take on things ultimately leading to Todd's firing. I would say it's now been made pretty obvious Dean played a big role in having Todd removed from the show.

Yes, Todd and Dean had an incident. Todd went to Corus HR about it. Corus HR talked to Dean and decided to terminate their working relationship with Todd.

I hear that Dean did something offside to Todd, off air and technically not on company time. Todd objected raised the issue, they chose Dean and now realize they made a mistake. Tickle it up Toddy!!

I've heard this is the same sort of thing that happened with Jason. Dean basically said either Jason is gone or he goes. What a baby Dean is.

I'd urge anyone that wants the true story to seek out Derek. He's the only one of the three that has been honest (todd seems to skip over details and dean is under legal contract to stay quiet for a year) Mike needs to have derek on a podcast and ask him the questions

Todd Shapiro did say he'd hook that up for me, didn't he?

@Mike

Todd also said he'd contribute to your ride.

Todd's it seems is a compulsive liar and I'm glad he lost a shit load of money by getting canned at Corus.

It's just a matter of time until he fails on his new show. He will be exposed for what he really is, a lame sidekick and a guy who says one thing and does another.

Todd is playing up his firing as a shocking thing over an incident. The incident was that todd threw a hissy fit and wanted the same money Dean was making. corus said no, todd said that him and dean would walk if he didn't get the same money, Dean Respectfully said he didn't want to take part in another employees negotiations and todd blamed Dean for getting him fired. Dean gets bashed on these forums way to much but the truth is that todd made his own bed and he really shouldn't have expected Dean to put his job on the line to help another DJ that was already being paid more then he was worth. Dean proved that the show was more about him and todd was replaceable. Todd needs to Grow up and stop the act

@Mike - let's not forget you failed humanity in not getting these details when you "interviewed" him. Good thing everyone is distracted by Putin.

Considering the history with Corus and Martin Streek, it's a little odd that they wouldn't have a problem terminating Todd on a Friday. That's typically an HR no no!

The people who fired Martin streek are basically murderers. They are solely responsible for the mans death and the fact that charges were never brought forward puts little faith in this countries judicial system

@red foxx,

I loved Martin Streek and grew up listening to his awesome club nights, but that's a stretch.

Nobody, never mind a shitty corporation, is solely responsible for another's mental health. Not even Streek's friends saw it coming.

agreed Markosaar

The only one responsible for suicide is the person who commits it. years ago I worked with a man who would always get on my nerves and say stupid things, Well one day I decided to just lay into him, I told him how his appearance was disgusting and how no one would ever love him and how he just pissed everyone off. Well a week later he took a bottle of pills and at first i was worried that i'd get in trouble for leading him to it, But Truth is that no one ever asked me any questions and his family never blamed work. He was clearly just insane and me pushing him was not to blame. But he was a loser anyways, So Maybe the comparison isn't valid

It Doesn't matter

You know what? This whole thing is stupid. Who cares? Let's move on.

@markosaar, that's not exactly true. It was known at the station Streek had mental health issues.

The company does bear some responsibility for how they handled his dismissal in light of that fact, regardless of the outcome.

I think to blame Martin's suicide on the people who fired him is as silly as saying that the people who should be charged for his death are the people who sold him the drugs. They should have taken his mental state into account.

Sadly Martin had issues that weren't entirely apparent to even those close to him. I miss hearing him on the radio, his passion for his music that he wanted you to hear.

The edge 102.1 hasn't been relevant in 10 years

@fredson bedgges I agree, Derek would be a great guest for the podcast.

Blind Derek is coming on, but it's a little tricky because of his visual impairment... but it is happening.

So....What's currently going on in Tdot? Theories on why the edge is garbage these days? I tune in every once in a while online...and tune out fairly quickly.
