Just wondering if anyone knows how 96.9 got Jay Severin back on their station? Didn't he have a contract with Westwood One? Did 96.9 buy into that contract?

Greater Media, owner of WTKK, had exclusive rights to negotiate with Severin until 12/31/05. After that he was
open game for them, Infinity/CBS/Westwood One, or others to grab. His agent managed to swing a one-year deal with
GM/WTKK just before the deadline. I thought he was headed
to WBZ myself, but they couldn't even talk with Jay's
agent until after the New Year.

CBS, etc., syndicates the show and attempts to get it on
their local stations but here WTKK scooped 'em.
