Bay Area talk show host Ralph Barbieri filed suit Monday against radio station KNBR over his firing two months ago.

Barbieri claims he was wrongfully terminated because of his age, 66, and because he has Parkinson's Disease and diabetes. KNBR says it's because he was constantly late and refused to honor his contract.

Barbieri is demanding $10 million and says his radio show, "The Razor and Mr. T," was consistently rated No. 1 or 2, right up until the day he was let go.
