Some of the most Liberal areas in the country have great conservative talk show hosts. This story is about Boston & Carr. I’m familiiar with Morgan/Rogers in the bay area of California & Lars Larson in Portland Oregon.

Again a reminder to everyone, incl. those on the Howie
ping list, that nothing is set in stone: he intends
to start Thu on WTKK but that doesn’t mean it’ll happen.
Not with lawyers in the way. It’s possible that Wed.
would be his last show on WRKO and there could be an
extended period (weeks or months?) with no Howie at all.
(Someone on’s Boston board predicted he
would be off till January or so as this legal stuff gets

Howie’s lawyers would intend to prove that the non-compete
clause in this state is illegal and that WRKO did not
match the competing offer. They could point out that even
if WRKO matches the salary WTKK is offering, a) can they
match the bonus incentives? and b) WRKO would not be able
to offer certain things WTKK can offer, including an
FM signal, a morning drive slot, a signal that doesn’t
fade in certain areas after sunset, a lineup where
he isn’t pre-empted by the Sox...

Could get interesting. I hope he can jump over there
(would not be surprised though if Entercom tried to
get a court to do an emergency injunction to stop
him from doing a show across town at the Morrissey
Blvd studios of WTKK)

Stay...tuned! (Winky the elephant may or may not be
moving to ‘TKK just yet.)
