Very, very controversial Jason Whitlock is taking to the airwaves tomorrow to explain why he's leaving The Kansas City Star. This apparently requires two broadcast media, $300 worth of barbecue, three hours in all, and perhaps the crew of the S.S. Minnow.
Whitlock will appear on Nick Wright's show on KCSP in Kansas City from 3 to 6 p.m. CST. He had a few demands, of course. In an email, Wright tells us:
He wanted 1 hour for himself to explain why he left The Star and whatever else is on his mind. Then I will interview him for an hour, then we will take phone calls for an hour. He also wanted the whole thing broadcast on TV (we secured a local sports station, Metro Sports for this), and then the best part....
We have to cater it with Gates Barbecue, his favorite Kansas City spot.
It's all so very Whitlock that the real wonder is why he didn't just do the damn thing from the Bazookas Showgirls champagne room.
