I like the idea of recording the shows online. That would mean never being able to call in again, which would be too bad, but better than not having Howie around!

Hey, did you notice that WRKO has a job opening for a 9-12 radio show? I wonder if they're considering that Feinberg will be a permanent afternoon fixture. I'm going to be optimistic and say that's a good sign!

WRKO is looking for a midday show host to fill our 9A- noon slot. Candidates should have at least two years experience hosting or co-hosting their own show. The host must have an intimate knowledge of national and global issues in addition to local Massachusetts politics, history and culture. The WRKO midday host will be expected to possess a savvy understanding of the news cycle, including spending a considerable amount of time in the field, establishing connections with community leaders, political principals and other influential and notable people. We're searching for a personality, someone who can establish a relationship with the audience beyond just the exchanging of ideas. Candidates should be extremely opinionated who are unfazed by a back-and-forth of strong ideas and opinions, and someone who is a team player, supportive and respective of fellow staffers. Please forward your resumes to or Entercom Boston, Attn: Human Resources, 20 Guest Street, 3rd Floor, Brighton, MA 02135. Entercom is an equal opportunity employer.

I especially like the "team player" bit (emboldened above). They want someone who is opinionated and obnoxious, yet respectful and meek. Bipolar candidates line up!

yes we noticed that ad on the radio boards. It could indeed be that they need someone for late mornings if they lose Howie
and put Todd on in afternoons. But I wonder if it’s an old
ad? Note it says 9-noon. Up until Feb 12 when Finneran’s
show started, they had the 6-9 am slot and then 9-noon
but Finneran’s show became 6 to 10 am...with Todd F 10-noon.
Is that poss. an ad from BEFORE when Finneran started?

Then again they already HAD Feinburg for that slot so
why adv. for a new host (unless his ratings were/are
