Peter Boyles makes KNUS debut, says he can't legally talk about delay

Peter Boyles.
Update: Yesterday at this time, we reported that Peter Boyles, who was fired at KHOW following an incident with his longtime producer, would tentatively debut Wednesday on a new station, 710 KNUS, after the program failed to launch on its planned date, Monday, July 1; see our previous coverage below.

No need for the word "tentatively" now. Teased by a musical intro featuring Eminem's "My Name Is," Boyles appeared on KNUS at 6 a.m. sharp -- but without revealing the reasons behind the delay.

There were plenty of online indications that Boyles would be behind the microphone this a.m. KNUS' website, which had removed references to the host on Monday, shared the following image....

...and this schedule:

By the way, Steve Kelley, whose Kelley & Company program is moving from the mornings to the afternoons due to Boyles's arrival, is said to be under the weather -- the reason why he won't be heard at 1 p.m. today.

In addition, KNUS' Facebook page posted a graphic....

...that fans immediately (and correctly) interpreted as a teaser for Boyles.

Still, those who tuned moments ago hoping that Boyles would reveal why he didn't start broadcasting for KNUS on Monday were disappointed. While chatting with a flurry of congratulatory callers, he said, "There are some legal things that have occurred that I'm really not able to talk about."

Minutes later, he added, "I have a lot of constraints, things I can't talk about, but it's been an interesting couple of days."

No doubt listeners will interpret these remarks as indicating that Clear Channel, his former employer, had threatened action against him if he took to the airwaves, even though any non-compete clause in his contract had presumably expired. The contract lapsed shortly before he was fired for yanking a lanyard around the neck of producer Greg Hollenback -- an action that left red marks.

Tom Tancredo guested on what turned out to be Peter Boyles's last show on KHOW.
Rather than dishing behind-the-scenes dirt, Boyles chose to stir the political pot, announcing that his first guest would be Republican gubernatorial candidate Tom Tancredo -- who happened to be his last visitor on KHOW. In response to a caller who noted ruefully that Tancredo's critics think he's crazy, Boyles said, "If he's crazy, so what. We need crazy people."

That's the kind of comment calculated to get people talking.

I did listen to the show. He said he can't talk about the delay for legal reasons...we best not talk about it, as well.

Kelley is recovering from an automobile accident that occurred several weeks ago.

When "Coast to Coast" was on 630 am. the late-night radio talk show that deals with a variety of topics, but most frequently ones that relate to either the paranormal or conspiracy theories. You could never tell when that show ended and Peter Boyles show started.

I decided to listen to KNUS on Monday. The stations programming reminded me of the ,"Dawn to Dusk", A.M. stations in the late 60's. If Boyles does air, he should think about changing his ,"Same old, Same old ", delivery! ( If he doesn't, Blanket the cat better get used to dry food .)c

I've listened to boyles for nigh on 30 years, back when he and Berg were on KWBZ. And he's always been one to jump from one political viewpoint to another. Once upon a time he was a bomb throwing radical leftist, then a rock ribbed conservative and now--a Libertarian Progressive. I find him entertaining as well as irritating to the extreme. And is one that never really lets the facts get in the way of his latest rant.

Glad to hear it! Pete's well-read, knowledgeable, and provocative.  I can't stand his support of the homosexual agenda but he speaks truth to power when it comes to the fraud that is the president and the islamist invasion of this country.

Maybe Steve Kelly didn't like getting moved to afternoons and he's the one contesting/enforcing his contract

Non-compete clauses are almost always unenforceable. Courts rule they deprive someone from performing their specialty and being able to put food on the table. And trying to enforce one after terminating someone makes it even harder. Must be something else going on. Or Boyles has no balls and is all talk (likely).

Judging by the way the media won't leave this ALONE, Boyles has become they grey haired, shriveled, NON-virgin, version of Tim Tebow .......

Love the dual standards some people allow. He strangles some one in a fit of rage and apparently "all is right in his world", yet some one uses a "word" some years ago and is tarred and feathered being stoked by the media.

Ahh, there's still hope he won't be on.

But K-NUS rhymes with . . . well, you know. Seems like good station call letters for Peter to be associated with.

The headline is a typo: Boyle isn't in KNUS, he's in ANUS. Exactly where that no-talent birther shitheel belongs. Anyone who listens to Boyle is a fucking idiot.

One would think that with all that reading Peter does he'd have gone over his Clear Channel contract with a fine toothed comb and see if he had agreed to a no compete clause. Interesting that Kelley has disappeared from the KNUS website, although this morning's host Jimmy Sengenberger did slip up at least once and say we were listening to "Kelley and Company". Perhaps Phil Boyce and KNUS failed to read the current contract they have with Steve Kelley as well.

However it just might be a manifestation of yet another multinational corporation conspiracy, right Peter? At any rate, the shysters in all four camps: Boyles, Kelley, Clear Channel and Salem, are already racking up billable hours.

Thanks for the follow-up. Was going to unlike this media venue. Even if there's no explanation...at least you wrote something for those who were wondering what happened this morn.

I wonder if someone pointed out to the doctrinaire folks at Salem that, even though Boyles reliably hits most of the right-wing chords -- including race-baiting, birtherism and an almost sexual fascination with firearms -- that he is also an advocate for gay marriage? I would think, given Salem's track record, that such a stance would be enough to get a talk host immediately fired from a Salem-owned station, and it would be impossible for them to exact a pledge from Boyles that he wouldn't address the subject. Salem may have decided -- probably wise for Salem -- not to set off the ticking ideological time bomb in the first place.

I think people need to keep their undies on and relax.  Pete more than likely has been told by his Agent/Lawyer to keep quiet or Clear Channel will sue him.  I would bet KNUS has been told the same thing by their legal team.  Think about it the last thing Clear Channel wants is Pete back on the air before they have someone on the air who can compete with him.  Remember with Clear Channel it's about money with you it's about a talk show.   I would bet there are lawyers involved and I would not be surprised if this ends in a law suit.  I'm sure Pete will be back on the air mote than likely at KNUS.  Just remember the line about lawyers from the movie Other Peoples Money.

@JayMarvin Not a very nice thing to say about Boyles who has supported your struggle with life. I've never heard a negative word about you or your left-wing show. Peter has always been very supportive of you, then you call his show Paranormal meaning wacko and loaded with Conspiracy. Mr. Marvin, what do you think Global Warming is?  Maybe it's a good thing you are not on the air anymore.

@kozan Not hardly, those who really do speak out about Islam face death threats and need 24/7 security and secret addresses. People such as Walid Shoebat need to call in to talk from special lines where their location can't be determined. Muslims, once they are a large enough portion of any society, shut down, totally, any and all discussion and or criticism of both Islam and Muhammad. There is no freedom of speech with Islam. Pete just sort of skirts the issue, has Spencer on, but really doesn't come to any conclusions on his own, he hates Christianity just as much if not more than Islam.

Heh.  Don't listen to that Hannity-wannabe Texas asshat they've brought in to replace Boyles over at KHOW, then - your head might explode.  He's a total buffoon, honking inanely about potheads listening to Pink Floyd... one segment from that yahoo was enough to leave me begging for the return of Peter Boyles, even the angry, thin-skinned, right-wing loony version we've been saddled with for the past few years.

@swellsSWells828 I may be a effing idiot. but it is my right under that thing called the Constitution to allow me to listen to what I want...and allows you to say whatever the hell you want. That is one thing stupid liberal progressives will never understand until they get their wish and everyone is silenced. GO PETER. This effing idiot cannot wait until you are on the air again.

@Jordan Nicole Montoya There is a whole spectrum of intelligent radio conversation of which you are apparently unaware. It wouldn't be on if people weren't listening. Try to relax, open your mind, and absorb some ideas that perhaps you haven't considered before. Just sayin'.

@ophea @swellsSWells828 That is the ridiculous myth that conservatives love to tell themselves about liberals--those evil SOB's want to take away your freedom of speech! The actuality is that you are confusing censorship with criticism  (um, duh). You silly conservatives can say whatever hateful/fearful nonsense you want to say--no one's trying to throw you in jail for saying stupid sh*t. And people who disagree are free to say whatever they want in return. And even the people who call for boycotts on Limbaugh or whomever are still exercising their right to free speech. They are free to tell sponsors that they don't like what so and so is saying and sponsors are free to respond to it or to ignore it. We're all allowed to speak with our words and with our dollars. The whole  persecution complex so prevalent among conservatives is getting very old. Don't you ever get tired of playing the victim? It's no wonder Queen of the Victims Sarah Palin is still popular among the hard right extremists.

Clyde is my 5th Rottie & NONE have EVER bitten ANYONE . In fact, the breed is so docile & NON-aggressive, one must torture and beat the animal to make it mean . 

The dog was originally used as a herder . Two events have left the beautiful beast w/ an undeserved & unearned reputation . Yes, it WAS Hitler's preferred pet . It's believed, through savage techniques used during the 'Reign of the 3rd Reich', the Doberman Pincher was born .

The second & MOST popular hypothesis in America, comes directly from the horror classic, 'The Omen', where the dogs were 'demon possessed' . 

You really can't get a more loyal, easy to train, GREAT LOOKING, OUTTA the puppy stage before age two, sweetheart of a dog, than the Rottweiler !!!

There are WAY MORE poodle & 'yorkie' bites reported EVERY year !!!

If a cop EVER was to raise a gun at Clyde, he/she better be prepared to kill us BOTH !!!

I am not a victim and have no use for Sarah Palin or Rush Limbaugh. I am just smart enough to see that unfortunately the progressive left is prevailing. Be careful of what you wish for. I just cannot wait to sit back in 10 years in my fully paid for home, living off MY smart investments and watching the entire debacle collapse in front of your rose-colored Socialist eyeballs. Don't you dare ask me for a handout. Then let's see who.plays the victim. Good luck.
