from Boston Radio Watch, by Mark Schnyder

Radio personality Howie Carr may have to remain off the air until his ongoing contract dispute with WRKO AM 680 is resolved as the result of today’s ruling in Suffolk Superior Court.

The judge ruled that a non-compete clause in Carr’s contract with WRKO is not enforceable under state law, but a match clause that gave WRKO the right to match any new offer was enforceable.

Carr who did his last show on WRKO yesterday is not expected to be back on the station where he spent last 13 years hosting very popular afternoon drive program. And, unless WRKO’s owner Entercom and WTKK’s parent company Greater Media somehow work things out(ie, monetary compensation) between now and 6am tomorrow morning, his scheduled debut on 96.9FM is being put on hold. Obviously nothing’s really stopping Carr to appear on WTKK tomorrow morning(as host or guest caller), but Entercom’s lawyers would likely go to court to silence him until things are settled.
