Yes...as far as hiring convicted felons goes, WPRO has Buddy Cianci but I believe he’s still a beloved figure down there

For those unfamiliar, on this thread:
Howie let slip in July of 07 that he was moving to WTKK when his RKO contract ended. RKO went to court and he was stopped.
His “last” WRKO show was 9/19/07 and he was due to start on WTKK on Oct 1; the TKK website was re-designed and supposedly a Howie page (he was due to do AM drive) was part of it. Greater Media, WTKK’s owner, had “Carr candy bars” as giveaways (Howie has given these to people...and has worn a WTKK hat at public appearances!)

Howie did a TV interview with Ch 4 just as the change was about to happen but the judge ruled against him. He finally returned to WRKO around Nov of 07

Jason Wolfe of WEEI/WRKO/Entercom put money into the cash cow that is WEEI. They got the spiffy studios and Howie was left with the crappy ones. With CBS’ Sports Hub 98.5 as competition, WEEI does not want to be left behind. They even took back ALL of the Red Sox games, even though
WRKO promos still say “The Boston Red Sox are on WRKO”

Come 2012 (or earlier if Entercom goes bankrupt?) Howie could be at Boston Talks 96.9 or Clear Channel’s WXKS 1200
(I don’t know if CBS’ WBZ would want him)

Glenn Beck may be gone from WRKO, too; he is still listed on “Weekend Shows” but the lineup for next Sat lists “Rusty Humphries” in the Sat night slot that had been best of Beck
