There is no story here. There are plenty of out of work radio personalities that could fill any position he could and also don't have drug/alcohol problems.

Feel bad for the guy but he's not ready.
just threw away a good thing for booze.
But someone in hollywood will give him another chance and money for a story which he will blow drinking.
Wish the best for him.
