"Hunter & Janeen: Just a quick note to offer my congratulations," Miller wrote. "We look forward to working with you any way we can."
However, within two months, Raese began publicly asking questions about the bid process and whether it was tainted by Payne and Alvarez's involvement with West Virginia Media. His concerns led to Morrisey's involvement and recommendation that the process be rebid.
After IMG won the contract a second time, the company began reaching out to West Virginia Radio to solicit its interest in IMG's radio affiliate network.
Potter's affidavit says he, IMG vice president Chris Ferris and company president Ben Sutton began having conversations with Miller in mid-July expressing interest in doing business with West Virginia Radio.
The affidavit said IMG provided West Virginia Radio with draft affiliate agreements before it began approaching other radio stations in the state.
"Initially, Mr. Miller committed to consider the opportunities," Potter said. "Nevertheless, IMG's interest and overtures have been rejected."
Miller said Monday on Hoppy Kercheval's MetroNews Talkline show that IMG had specifically asked only him about partnering with West Virginia Radio's Summersville station WSWW-FM.
The emails contained in the affidavit confirm IMG specifically asked Miller about this station, but that was because it was already covered by a Mountaineer Sports Network affiliate agreement for the 2013-2014 season.
Potter sent an email to Miller on Wednesday, July 24, asking if he had an interest in allowing that station to remain on the WVU sports network for the coming year.
After receiving no response from Miller, Potter sent a second email the following day again asking if he would have interest in keeping the station on the network but also added, "if you have any interest in us discussing a similar one-year agreement for any other individual a station you own," to respond by the following day.
"If I do not get a response to you by that time," Potter said, "then we will understand that you are not interested in any such affiliation and will proceed accordingly."
IMG officials said after they did not receive word back from West Virginia Radio, they proceeded with signing other network affiliate stations.
The Daily Mail contacted Miller asking if the statements contained in Potter's sworn statement were true. However, Miller said he could not respond to the affidavit because of the company's pending litigation in the case.
Meanwhile, the affidavit said IMG was continuing to beef up its operations in Morgantown. It said the company has hired four sales team members who are in the process of relocating to Morgantown.
While it did not name the employees, it said the company's Morgantown office general manager recently resigned from a job with the Pittsburgh Steelers and is in the process of relocating his family from Pittsburgh to Morgantown.
