Carr jumps from WRKO to rival WTKK
WRKO-AM radio host Howie Carr, who leads the afternoon talk show ratings in the Boston market, will move to the morning drive-time slot on rival station WTKK-FM this fall, his lawyer said today.
“Howie Carr believes it’s a better opportunity,” said Bret Cohen, Carr’s attorney at Mintz Levin. “He believes he’ll have the exact same listeners on a clearer sounding channel that’s more accessible to more people.”
The move puts Carr head-to-head with his current co-worker and nemesis, Tom Finneran — the former House speaker who hosts WRKO’s morning drive-time show.
“This is a huge loss” to WRKO, said media critic Dan Kennedy. “Certainly the sense for a long time has been that ‘RKO has not been doing very well and Howie has been pretty much their one shining exception.”
Carr currently holds the number two slot in afternoon programming, behind music station WXKS-FM, according to research firm Arbitron, which said 192,300 listeners tune in to Carr during a typical week, between January and March. His show, from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. daily, also had a 6.3 percent market share — a measure calculated through a combination of how many people listen and for how long.
