Los Angeles • Talk show host Michael Savage says he’s leaving the airwaves temporarily after scoring a legal victory in a dispute with his employer, Talk Radio Network.

Savage posted a message on his website Thursday evening under the headline "Free at Last!" saying he was free to work with any station or network from now on. His attorney Daniel Horowitz says Savage left his show after obtaining a favorable ruling in arbitration Thursday afternoon.

The magazine Talkers has stated that Savage’s show attracted more than 8 million listeners a week, trailing only Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity. Savage has gained notoriety for offending immigrants and minorities and being banned in 2009 from traveling to England.

An email sent to Oregon-based Talk Radio Network wasn’t immediately returned.

Horowitz says Savage has been fighting the network for two years to get out of an outdated contract.
