This, in turn, depends on how his contract defines "match an offer."  
If it does.  Usually we think of matching an offer as matching the 
money part of the offer.  If "match" includes the non-money aspects, 
it could be all over for Entercom.  But if not, or if the contract is 
ambiguous, there could be years of litigation ahead.
