A little update, Michelle McPhee (who is Boston Herald’s Criminal Justice Reporter and director of that paper’s Boston Police Bureau Division) has now been doing the AM side of the midday time slot on behalf of Michael Graham who has now been doing morning edition since Mike Barnicle’s abrupt resignation two months after Don Imus was relieved of his duties.

However, this AM lineup of Talk 96.9 ‘TKK won’t last for long. Starting 12/3/07 (in a week and a half from now), the AM lineup will be as follows:

5:00-5:30AM It will still be that nationally syndicated news/sports/weather/Wall Street news roundup hosted by Jim Bohanan, I don’t think that’ll be going away.

5:30-6:00AM A rebroadcast of Imus (I think)

6-9:00AM Imus in the Morning (The Sequel, Welcome back)

9AM-12:00Noon The Michael Graham Broadcast.

The PM Lineup will remain the same as it has since the realignment of Jan ‘07.

Also, this will mean that the AM lineup will not have any room for the Michelle McPhee Broadcast which will be confined to just Saturday Mornings from 9AM-12Noon. Unless she’s called to “pinch-hit” aka fill-in.

Yeah they tried to get Howie Carr but the courts shot it down (I do the Howie ping so we’ve followed this) and now instead
of Howie getting Imus’ slot, Imus gets his old slot back
and Howie remains on WRKO (aft 3-7 pm). Graham had been
holding the slot for Howie but once the parties involved
found out that a “right to match” clause in Howie’s
contract WAS valid, he couldn’t jump to ‘TKK so basically
we get the status quo.

Of course Howie benefitted from Imus, in a way; Imus
libelled Howie’s wife (a private figure) and Alan
Dershowitz worked out an out-of-court settlement in
which Imus basically helped to pay for Howie’s
condo in Florida.
