WRKO-AM (680) has cut loose afternoon radio host Charley Manning because of less than stellar ratings, according to sources.
Ex-WTKK-FM (96.9) nighttime host and Herald contributor Michele McPhee will take his place starting Monday.
Manning, who replaced Rush Limbaugh on WRKO, has been on the air less than a year in the 1 to 3 p.m. time slot.
More to come .
WRKO just sent out this press release:
Michele McPhee to Join WRKO Lineup
January 13, 2010 (Boston) Entercom New England announced today that acclaimed media personality and celebrated author Michele McPhee will join the lineup at WRKO beginning next Monday, January 17th.
McPhee replaces Charley Manning from 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm. Manning, who is involved in a number of business ventures that keep him working around the clock, is leaving to devote more of his time to those projects.
I want to thank Charley for his tireless efforts over the past year. I enjoyed working with him and I look forward to working with him in the future, said Jason Wolfe, Vice President of AM Programming and Operations at Entercom New England. Michele has a tremendous track record of success in Boston. She works extremely hard, and Im very excited to bring here to WRKO. She has great contacts locally and nationally, and her experience and understanding of this market will provide for some very compelling programming.
I am excited to be part of the lineup at WRKO, said McPhee. Talk Radio plays such an important role in keeping politicians accountable; engaging in analysis about the daily headlines; and giving New Englanders a chance to weigh in. Im looking forward to getting started and coming up with a daily dose of outrage.
