Michael Lohan

Turns Down Burger King Job

... for Florida Radio Gig

2/23/2012 12:08 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0223_michael_lohan_tmz_EXMichael Lohan and The Whopper weren't meant to be after all ... TMZ has learned Lindsay's dad has decided to pass on the Burger King gig ... and instead, he's accepted a job at a Miami radio station.

TMZ broke the story ... the treatment center where Lohan is seeking court-ordered counseling told Michael to get a job to help transition back into normal functioning society. 

(Reminder: Mike was ordered to complete treatment as part of his plea deal in his domestic violence case)

Mike had initially applied to BK ... but he's since found a better gig with the WiLD 95.5 radio station in Palm Beach, FL.  We're told Mike will primarily take on the grunt work ... but we wouldn't be surprised if they featured him on air from time to time.

The pay isn't bad either -- $8.25 an hour ... 50 cents more than he would've made at Burger King.

But he won't be spending it all in one place ... or at all ... 'cause we're told MiLo is planning to donate his entire paycheck to charity.

Hey... it's the Father of the Year. And he's donating his entire check to charity. What a great guy.

Burger King wouldn't have him. He's been jailed for insider trader fraud, jailed for battery, jailed for domestic violence to name a few. He is an alcoholic and drug addict with serious anger issues. He also owes child support to his ex wife and to his other kid in Montana.


Anyone see the irony that Burger King don't want him but an early morning radio show, broadcasting to a family audience employ him? He makes me wanna throw up.

Miami is about an hour and a half south of West Palm. Two distinct areas.

Donating his wages to charity? How's that? Where's he getting money? This is only news if you're a celebrity relative... Normal people have to have normal, hourly wage, jobs. I hope they don't let him on the air. He needs to focus on sobriety like any other recovering addict.

I work in radio and could only dream to make it to a major market like Miami. I work 40 hours a week, and love every minute of it. This s***bag has no experience at all in the business, no respect for the industry, and probably couldn’t tell you the first thing of radio. The only reason he is famous is for his family of screw ups, and he gets handed a dream job of mine. Why is this fair? Why should this tool take jobs from people like me who work their asses off in this world?

You know what job he should have got? A stuntman for the Bubba the Love Sponge show. Then we all could laugh at him and the torture they give him would be well deserved.

Great idea! He does, after all, have a face perfect for radio.

It's about time this loser got a job and stopped mooching off his daughter's past fame.

Why is he donating it to charity? Isn't he sleeping in his car? He needs that check so he can rent a flea bag motel room.

To answer a previous poster: ALL of LiLo problems come from having major POS for parents.

TMZ...one thing, WILD 95.5 is not in Miami. It is in WPB. This station plays Top 40. After reading this story, Mr. Lohan will work as a go for or a gopher for the staff at the radio station. I don't he will on the mic.
