Howie Carr live ping. Last night if you were listening to Howie you heard the NBC news cuts from the VT killer as they were broadcast.
In Boston, WTKK 96.9 (home of Mike Barnicle, aren't you excited...) pre-empted "outdated" tape delayed shows from O'Reilly and Ingraham (damn! no Laura) in favor of the MSNBC feed with Chris "Lardball" Matthews, Keith Overbite (I thought his book "Worst Person In The World" was an autobiography?) and Joe Scarborough, etc. With more details and talk about the package NBC got. WRKO was committed to carrying their last Celtics game. Next year, the Larry Bird's Not Coming Through That Door, Fans Network moves to WEEI...

FLASH: RATINGS BLOWOUT FOR NBC NEWS... 7.4 RATING/15 SHARE FOR BRIAN WILLIAMS AND CHO TAPES, NIELSEN OVERNIGHTS SHOW... 6.2/12 FOR ABC ‘WORLD NEWS’... CBS COURIC AT 4.2/8...
Reuters: “”We had planned to speak to some family members of victims this morning but they canceled their appearances because they were very upset with NBC for airing the images,” said NBC “Today” morning program co-host Meredith Vieira.
My email to NBC in its entirety:
“Please do not give that little creep any more publicity.”
Unreal—posthumous fame. It was all about him and never mind the innocent people he killed, in his warped mind (I kinda hate to advocate suicide but my advice to those who do a murder-suicide is
to kill themselves first and thus spare the innocents.)
His memory should be forgotten but those who died will
be long in the memories of all who knew them and it’s
horrible that they didn’t get to live their lives fully,
to bear kids, to perhaps teach or start businesses;
all gone due to a madman.
Anyone else agree with me and Howie that this should not be referred to as a tragedy? it’s much worse, it’s an ATROCITY.
I heard Kitty Carlisle died. Anyone have her in the death pool?
I don’t know...I saw the news about her during yesterday’s show and mentioned it on the thread and also emailed Howie but he didn’t mention it on air, assuming he (or Sandy, who probably checks through the emails) saw the email or heard
about her passing.
Sox just took 4-3 lead in top of 9th
Howie is on WRKO today...but if you listen to WCRN or
WXTK-FM you get the Sox instead...for a little while longer.
And nope Kitty Carlisle Hart was not in the latest death pool
geez I’m “only” 45 and I remember Kitty & TTTT (To Tell
sac fly, Sox up 5-3 I have Howie on radio and Sox on NESN
AWWWw So the Iman won’t be UP for cabbage????
Oh, did you hear that McGreevey will be teaching ethics???
the pic with the two guns looked like the dude in Taxi Driver
Sox win 5-3 so Howie will be back on WCRN and WXTK-FM momentarily...
I had a portable radio tuned to the game and the TV was on NESN; since the NESN broadcast is in HD there’s a delay. So I knew the flyball to J.D. Drew to end the game was coming, even a second or two before the batter hit it.
THURSDAY, APRIL 19
General Richard A. Cody Vice Chief of the United States Army and the 2nd highest ranking army officer in the service will be in Boston and in the studio with Howie.
CHUMP LINE! Call 617-779-3469 and leave Howie, Sandy or Happy a message about today’s stories or anything else buzzing around your bonnet and we may play it back on the air!.
Here’s the McGreevey link.
Boston Radio Watch: “Former WRKO AM 680 morning man Scott Allen Miller will be sitting in for John Gibson on the Fox News Talk network from 6-9pm tomorrow(4/20). Although, the talk network is not heard on any local station, it’s available on satellite services XM and Sirius as well as on-line streaming.”
BRW gives the link.
Fox talkers include Brian and the Judge (heard overnights via WBAL in Baltimore),
Alan Colmes, John Gibson, and Spencer Hughes (remember him?) For some reason I note that “Fox
News Radio”’s site has podcast links to those shows plus O’Reilly’s radio show. But I though BOR’s
show was syndie via Westwood One? (Maybe W1 _syndicates_ him but Fox News/Premiere _produces_ it...?)
ha—according to MLB.com’s “GameDay”, Indians now lead
Yankees 5-2; three run HR by Victor Martinez. (One of
my co-workers at the P.O. is also named Victor Martinez,
who’s a Yankees fan because he grew up in the Bronx.
It’ll be fun poking fun at the fact that “Victor Martinez”
may have beaten his Yanks today!
speaking of Yankees, reminder that WRKO is doing tomorrow
night’s Sox-Yankees game and since there’s a 6:30 pm
pregame, we lose the last half hr of Howie...
>>"It seems to me, Jim McGreevey teaching law and ethics is a little bit like Doctor Kevorkian teaching health maintenance," state Republican chairman Tom Wilson told the newspaper.
Howie used to poke fun at VB by playing the sound cut of VB _quoting_ McGreevey; there was VB saying, "'I am a gay American'"...
perhaps he walked silently and carried a big (s)?tick.
