Howie Carr live show ping. Still no word on the Howie/Entercom/Greater Media situation but it looks like
Entercom is partnering with Nassau Broadcasting to put
its WEEI programming on 11 stations elsewhere in New
England, and Entercom has bought half of WCRB FM 99.5
(it will stay classical)...Dennis and Callahan
still have no deal and as far as I know, Entercom
still claims they want to keep Howie. There
are two lawsuits...
Once we DO know we’ll let YOU know. (Originally Howie’s
contract with Entercom was to end Sept 19 and it still
may, with Howie hoping to start on WTKK FM on Oct 1,
but nothing is set yet. For now be aware Howie is
ON VACATION all next week. No idea who will be filling in;
maybe Avi or Col. Hunt?
Howie did hint at it again yesterday... “I’ll be gone
all next week, because I want to burn off some
vacation time (cue the elephant roar)—read the papers...”
(i.e., Howie can’t say on air he wants to jump
ship but through papers and the Net you can find out
exactly when and if...)_
Howie said during the last hour that Col. Hunt will be filling in all next week. Yikes.
