Sources said WRKO program director Jason Wolfe was so angered by the news of Carr’s exit yesterday that he smashed a glass award sitting on his office desk.

Yeah ... his job just got a whole lot more difficult, not to mention less secure.

Don’t they have some morning show... Felon’s Forum, or some such?

I just signed up to listen, so I’m not sure.

Hasn't WRKO been sold a number of times during Carr's tenure?

And, if you believe all the stuff coming out about WRKO's management, they are trying to eliminate any and all non-liberal, non-democrat, anti-corruption voices at the station.

For WRKO to hire Finneran, an untried radio personality, and newly convicted felon, to a multi-year contract that supposedly killed the budget for a local news staff, is beyond business sense.

And letting both Carr and Finneran take swipes at each other couldn't have pleased the advertisers. Or sales people.

And Julie Kahn comes from sales?

Where'd Wolfe intern at? At CBS under Les "Let's drive away our most profitable radio talent, and while we're at it, let's see how fast we can kill off the news division at the largest possible expense" Moonves?

...by podcast, with the added bennie of being able to fast forward through...

I usually run "talk" recordings through a time compression utility, myself.

‘BZ is, well, ‘BZ.

I miss Brudnoy. I remember him on WRKO, maybe WHDH, talking about how great P-town was.

That was before I understood what P-town was...

Seeing “Dr. Laura” and “Howard Stern” together at #4 on the list is kind of funny to me for some reason. I also find it ironic that Howard Stern and Rush Limbaugh share the same birthday.

(sigh) That lists Tony Snow's show as tied with Al Franken and G. Gordon Liddy. Tony's show, however, was new, not on many stations but growing in popularity. We couldn't listen in Michigan so I caught it on the internet.

He's got to lick his cancer because he's got a life in radio after 2008!

Actually, you can now listen to Howie Carr’s “subs” and not Howie Carr, himself, on WRKO.

Sandy is a “leftist” and also a lawyer who far too often rudely interrupted Howie’s show over and over again whenever Howie is trying to talk! Very annoying, and very rude! Still, I wouldn’t be surprised if Sandy also hosts her own radio show very soon on WRKO as well as sub for Howie Carr very soon.

Tony Snow...because he's got a life in radio after 2008!

Yeah, if most of his former listeners forgive him for that "destroy the country amnesty" fiasco he was going around lying about.

Job or no job, it was unseemly.

The only job he's good for in media nowadays is getting me to change the channel or station when he comes on.

And I use to like his FNC Weekend broadcasts.

Howie is often distracting during Sandy's reading of the Police Blotter faxes.

VB got so fed up with her interruptions during his guest hosting one day, that didn't he tell her not to speak unless he played a bell or some other sound effect?

Sandy is not as much of a leftist as you think. I have met her and had numerous discussions with her - she is far from being a full blown leftist. Every time I have met her she has been very friendly and has a great sense of humor. If you listen to her you’ll more often than not find her taking a more right wing course on many issues. Granted, she is left on some issues but is not a moonbat.
Personally, I like her. oh, almost forgot -
she is also among us as a member of FR.

Sandy’s frequent interruptions of Howie Carr have always annoyed me. When there truly was something of importance that Sandy needed to interrupt Howie, then fine. But Sandy interrupted Howie over the littlest of reasons sometimes, and she got into the habit of interrupting Howie frequently over anything and everything. VB did have problems with Sandy’s interruptions as well. Very annoying.

I do like Sandy’s laugh, and, like I said before, I do see her hosting her own radio talk show very soon. Howie was nice enough to have Sandy host for him at least three times if not more. Everyone here wants to know what happens, if anything, to Sandy with this latest move by Howie?

Limbaugh never lets his staff on air. And here I thought it was just his ego, not good management of his show.
