Why in the world didn’t they pull the trigger on the extension? It makes no sense at all... I’d be firing some people this afternoon for blatant incompetence.

Once it’s decided that Howie can jump to ‘TKK, expect to hear Wolfie’s been fired...at least one rumor said that Julie Kahn
would give Wolfe the heave-ho if Howie did leave. They
are frantically trying to keep him, or at least delay
him moving to WTKK (or demand he stay off air for awhile,
“non-compete” etc.

This is the genius that radio sites and the Globe raved about.
Hey Entercom, where’s your messiah (Wolfie) now?

“’My initial goal is to make the station more exciting,” says Wolfe, 38. ‘’When you listen to WEEI, you feel that you have to sit up a little bit in your chair. It’s not background music. I’m not suggesting that ‘RKO is background music, but if we can somehow adopt that same philosophy in a way that benefits ‘RKO, I believe we will enhance the product.”

Radio Ink named Wolfe top programmer of 2005, and Talkers magazine publisher Michael Harrison says, ‘’Jason Wolfe is to talk radio what Theo Epstein is to baseball.”

Because I don’t think they really LIKE Howie Carr. He’s not really Jason Wolfe’s cup of tea. But since he has strong ratings, they can’t let a rival station have him.
Julie and Jason were probably hoping he would move to Florida.
