DL Hughley once did radio for free.

Radio Facts: Now when you were doing WRKS in New York that was an interesting situation because you were not actually being paid for that, correct?

DL: You know, it put me in a horrible tax situation because we signed the deal and I thought they would honor it but it ended up not being that way. But I love the medium so much and I thought, well, you know, eventually they’ll work this thing out. Unfortunately, that deal didn’t work out.
