Howie Carr live ping—yes I’m early but I wanted to get things rolling...still up in the air as to where he’ll be come
Thursday. Will he start on WTKK FM 96.9? Or be off air
till things are settled? Will he even stay at WRKO because of some kind of restraining order
—What about Howie’s affiliates?
WCRN in Worcester has dropped him. As for the others
I haven’t heard anything but once we know what’s going on
they may drop out (the syndication deal is via WRKO). All of them have local morning shows and probably would not pre-empt them for a NEW syndicated “Howie in the morning” but maybe Greater Media, WTKK’s owner—IF they choose
to syndicate him—could make him available for
“tape delay in the afternoon”
—To those in R.I.: Today Rush moves to WHJJ AM 920 as part of a new lineup. Quinn and Rose 6-8 am, local Helen Glover
8-10 am, Glenn Beck 10 till noon, Rush 12-3, Hannity
3-6 pm...then I think they have Mark Levin, Mike Savage,
and Jim Bohannon.
WPRO AM 630 will soon (Thu) start John Depetro 6-10 am,
Buddy Cianci and Ron St Pierre 10 am - 2 pm, and Dan
Yorke 2-6 pm (Yorke is filling in for Michael Graham
for a couple days on WTKK)
It’s a pretty good bet that Howie won’t be down for breakfast on WRKO Thursday.
RKO has become a total Deval/Lib whitewash radio.
Case in point. the Dims in Mass just announced plans to double tolls, increase the gas tax by 11 cents, and/or create a 5 cent per mile road tax.
Not a peep from the Felon this morning. He chose to talk about the Patriots (in case you couldn’t find one of the 400 sports stations in town)
What a joke. Hopefully, Howie will hit tolls hard this afternoon and continue whacking away at it when he goes to TKK.
Boston talk radio has been such a wasteland since Brudnoy departed. Carr is a smart ass, Severin has turned into just another Bush-basher and is too obsessed with countertops and perfect smiles. As for WTKK, it seems like its all commercials all the time.
It puzzles me why Boston can’t support a more thought-provoking talk show host such as Steve Malzberg or even Joey Reynolds that are on WOR in NY.
It was also nice that Mark Steyn plugged Howie Carr in his article two days ago, and this was mentioned on Howie’s show on Monday.
