Harris owed the money for legal help he received while he was negotiating a new contract with Clear Channel Radio and contemplating a move to his own station.
“I am 100 percent confident that by August my balance with Kutak Rock will be zero,” Harris said in June.
In a Thursday e-mail, Harris said he paid $21,652.74 on Aug. 27 at 10:30 a.m.
“We entered into an agreement,” says Alan Rupe, Kutak Rock managing partner.
He won’t confirm the payment or say anything else about the matter.
“You can ask me questions seven ways to Sunday, and I’m still going to have the same answer.”
