Pretty easy to think that the then higher-ups were riding the coattails of the morning show success giving him all sorts of leeway to be a not nice guy to Kathy.
The timing is just odd that there is the huge story that Kathy leaves voluntarily. After letting that happen, Eric's buddy Gregg Solk gets let go and management cracks down on Eric's rude tude. But without Eric's buddy around somehow Mary Ellen Kachinsky gets let go for trying to clean up the crap going on. ANOTHER case of the real higher-ups giving in to their morning monster.
The boys club is alive and well at that point and then a new program director comes in and falls in line with the men in the building-since Eric had to sign off on his hire- and nobody feels safe.
This is how Empires crumble and we may be witnessing it right now.
