Sounds like the national show didn't work out. As I and other pointed out on radio boards, he only got a few stations, and that time slot was tough to crack: many stations run Savage or tape-delayed Hannity, and some pre-empted him with sports.
I believe his affiliate in Philly, WPHT "The Big Talker",
had the Phillies on just about every night (they had the
team in '05 and probably this past year, too...)
Would rather hear Howie than Jay. Jay sometimes good in small doses, maybe when the station I'm listening to is in a commercial break...I wonder how he will do in that aft.
time slot against Howie. Maybe not bad: allegedly he beat Howie a few years ago, in some ratings periods. Am guessing Graham will wind up with 7 pm but who knows. Not quite into him either!
And I still don't know if they're serious about him moving into Boston, unless they count Sag Harbor, L.I., as
7 year deal from Greater Media for Severin? All that money they were gonna spend on the Red Sox (backed out of poss.
deal to put them on 'BOS) had to go somewhere.
>> Less than a year after signing a syndication deal that put him on the air from 7-10 p.m. in some 50 markets nationally
The article does say Graham gets bumped to nights...that Jay will be moving to the North Shore...
that $500,000 is what GM paid to CBS/W1 for Severino to get out of his deal early.
http://www.wtkk.com has a countdown timer to Severin's "return" and confirms it'll be Graham doing 7-10
