I would love to know what happened behind the scenes that caused this.
What kind of "great opportunities" is Nick pursuing that would cause him to leave the "dream job" he busted his tail for to set up. The job that allowed him to bullshit about sports with his good friend and other fellow comedians, talk to pro athletes, make good $$$, and not have to wake up before 1pm.
Unless Jerry Seinfeld, Louis CK, or Chris Rock are working on some huge project that Nick is a big part of I can't figure out what type of opportunity he is pursuing.
Maybe "Louie" will be "Louie and Nick" next year with Nick getting kicked out of his house and moving in with Louie
Great opportunities is a euphemism for he's fired and his pay or play contract means no radio for the next year and half or so - so they hope he goes and gets a radio job with Levy in So Carolina so they don't have to pay him.
