Check it out to find out... http://www.wtkk.com

The “working” site they had up was something like
dev.wtkk.com (dev as in “development”?) and it simply
says “wtkk” now.

WTKK is ready to take Carr on a morning ride

Forget Bill’s Candid Camera, Casino on the Charles, Red Sox collapse or Juice in Jail. The biggest topic in Boston’s talk radioland this week will become one of its own. Veteran radio talkshow personality Howie Carr stands to rattle local talk radio’s status quo as he prepares to walk the Green Mile from Brighton to Dorchester come this Thursday(9/20). After 13 years of hosting a very popular afternoon drive show on WRKO AM 680, Carr is about to jump to rival WTKK 96.9FM where he’ll officially take over morning drive wheel from Don Imus who was kicked off the air five months ago.

Carr’s new station WTKK 96.9FM has begun airing a promo of his upcoming debut on Thursday. Although you don’t hear Carr’s name mentioned in this spot(as he’s still WRKO’s employee thru tomorrow), those who have followed his very public two-month saga to extricate himself from the chains and shackles of WRKO’s contract get the message. As of today, WTKK’s owner Greater Media has not made an official statement about Carr’s arrival to FM Talker.

Carr and WRKO’s owner Entercom still have pending countersuits which haven’t been resolved yet. If Carr does make his on-air debut on WTKK in two days, WRKO will likely try to obtain a temporary restraining order to keep Carr off the air until the dispute is settled which so far none of the parties seem to be very interested in doing.

As always, stay tune to http://www.BostonRadioWatch.com for all the latest updates and developments on this and other Boston radio stories….

The development site is still, well, being developed. But you can see the (incomplete) template for Howie's page on WTKK here.
