Neumeier set to walk from WEEI

Tomorrow's "Dale & Neumy" midday show on WEEI will be the last for cohost Bob Neumeier, barring a last-minute change of heart in contract talks.

Neumeier has been seeking a significant boost in pay to renew his original three-year deal, which expires tomorrow, and said he was willing to walk away from the job if no deal was reached.

"I am very proud to have been a part of the explosion of ratings and revenue over the last three years at WEEI," he said. "Because the company and I cannot come to terms on a new contract reflecting that growth, I have chosen to move on. I wish all the guys well, particularly Dale Arnold, whose professionalism kept me honest and on my toes every day."
