Why would ANYONE sign such a restrictive contract?  I can't picture any
station forcing this on some poor joe who does one weekend overnight shift
a week, and if someone were a sufficiently high-profile talent, one would
think that they would have some sort of business agent.  I can't imagine
any clause so restrictive as this would stand up in any court of law.
