Nice picture, but I thought that he drives a Lexus.

It doesn’t get much better than this.

I think this is a great move by Howie. WRKO is dying a slow and painful death, and Carr is brilliant for getting out now.

Jason Wolfe might have done wonders at WEEI, but it's clear that he's out of his element over at WRKO. The last smart think Wolfe has done was give Mikey Adams the night-time slot over on WEEI, and that was quite a while ago.

The decision to broadcast Sox games on WRKO (and to dump Trupiano) is something I'll never understand . . .

So, my hat's off to you, Captain! Best of luck on WTKK.

As a listener I feel RKO(Entercom) has been sticking it to me constantly for the past year, I can only imaging how Howie feels. Constantly pissing on the listeners and the Cash cow is unbelievable. Why JK and JW are still at their desks is beyond me. Both of them should been shown the door 6 months ago.
Howie’s last day will be the day RKO is removed from my radios presets and favorites folder on my pc.

"Carr’s relationship with WRKO seems to have been seriously strained even before this dust-up hit the headlines"

With the exception of Howie's show WRKO has had changes in the format for the last few years. Even former hosts started talking "psychobabble" regarding a "fair and balanced" format. I suppose that was to attract more listeners BUT WRKO did NOT consider its audience at all in this decision. Its listeners are entrenched conservatives who probably didn't appreciate any part of liberal speak...therefore turning the dial to 96.9 fm talk.

That's what I did.

Howie’s only making $300K?! No wonder he’s willing to do all those book signings!

As for WEEI they should be doing Belichick and Brady’s laundry because their success is directly related to the success of the Patriots, and to a lesser extent, the red Sox. If Boston’s teams were struggling, their numbers would be a fraction of what they are today. It has nothing to do with Wolfe. Proof of that is how he manged to destroy the oldest and one of the most successful talks stations in America virtually over night.
