I get the feeling Howie may never be on WRKO again, not unless this gets settled (and even then it'll be in farewell mode)

‘RKO really did lose their collective minds some time ago! Nothing like a good lawsuit to smooth things over, though! ;-)

Of course he won't.I hope the Colonel isn't his replacement for many reasons...not least of which is I can only understand about 10% of what he says.

maybe they’ll pick up Jerry Doyle live in the meantime (or
swipe Hannity from WTTT); both shows air at 3 pm EDT

In March all it would have cost WRKO to tie up Howie for a full year was a registered letter.

Jason Wolfe will be out before Howie's contract is up.

Yes. Also this from Brian Maloney of RadioEqualizer blog and SaveWRKO.com. Brian got an email from a WRKO insider:
"Brian, it looks like the house of cards is falling down! Julie Kahn, Jim Rushton and Jason Wolfe found out about the 96.9 deal on the Herald website, they had no clue until it was mentioned to them. Julie was heard telling Jason in a closed door meeting that his neck is on the line if Howie walks...."

The lawsuit, filed today in Suffolk Superior Court, accuses the Entercom-owned WRKO (680) of including illegal restrictions in Carr’s contract designed to prevent the witty Herald columnist from jumping ship.

Well Howie, did ya' read what you signed?

If so, why did you sign an 'illegal contract'?

I had 96.9 on my presets but deleted it a few weeks ago. Between Michelle McPhee’s grating voice and the midday show...yikes!

Who cares who Howie’s replacement is? Rush, then Howie is my daily routine and I will not change. I’m getting a recorder to tape Howie while I’m still sleeping. Then I’ll play it at 3PM every day. This is the natural order of things and will continue to be. Not only that, if I’m driving and listening I won’t continue to lose Howie every other mile. C’mon Howie, you can tell us....where is Whitey??

hook up a stereo/radio to your comp.

get a program like AudioRecordWizard3 ($25) or Audacity (free).
Set the timer and make sure you leave your comp on.
Later on you can hear it via mp3 player etc

...also you could tap into the stream of WTKK and set the
“recorder” up to tape the “wave out mix”...

I can hear Ted laffing at Jason Wolf!

WRKO has a history of firing right leaning talk hosts for a minor faux pas. They hired a convicted felon ex-House Speaker who believes in raising taxes and who ever disagrees with him is a "Nit Wit" or a "Moron". Good for Howie, Boo to you WRKO!

LOL, this is great! Howie at his best!

Revenge is a dish best eaten cold. Howie's chowin' down on this feast.

Howie hits a home run with this one:

1. He gets the old Imus slot, "In your FACE Imus!"
2. He goes head-to-head against that BLEEPIN' Felon.
3. He doesn't have to put up with any more friggin' Red Sox preemptions.
4. He probably gets more money.

I expect to hear him say "My Heart Feels Like An Alligator!" today.

Another thought occurred to me:

Maybe this move will finally rid us of that fat liberal BLEEP Sandy and her warped, toe-licking fans.

Get the popcorn ready.....

We won’t be hearing Howie anytime soon on WRKO,IMO.The most frustrating thing is that no one on the radio will talk,or be allowed to talk about any of this.’RKO certainly won’t let this on their airwaves.

>>I expect to hear him say “My Heart Feels Like An Alligator!” today.

Not on the air, we won’t. Avi Nelson is filling in and
HC may not be back on 680 anytime soon, perhaps never
again...as long as this isn’t settled. And as has been
pointed out in various places, once WRKO realized they
could lose Howie they suddenly are making every effort
to keep him—all they had to do was sign a letter last
March or a couple times since then saying they’d
extend his current contract...

...and now that he’s going, you have a station which:

a) now has their star player off the air, while this
is being settled

b) is seriously thinking of keeping someone who is
clearly not happy with where he’s working and
whom he’s working with

Expect Entercom to not have a prayer in keeping him
away from WTKK, and expect Jason Wolfe to be asking
people “paper or plastic?” as part of his employment
in the near future.
