The Howie Carr Show live thread is now called the Howie
Carr Weekly Thread. It will come out on Sundays or Mondays
and there will be no guaranteed ping every day (Howie’s
radio status is in limbo) though you will be pinged if
there are Howie columns of interest, or news about Howie’s
situation etc.

From this week’s North East Radio Watch by Scott Fybush:


It’s not just the Curtis/Kuby/Imus transition that’s not going quite the way it was meant to go - in MASSACHUSETTS, Howie Carr continues to fight the ruling that’s preventing him from making the jump from Entercom’s WRKO (680) to Greater Media’s WTKK (96.9). Earlier last week, Suffolk Superior Court Judge Allen van Gestel ruled in Entercom’s favor, saying it had the legal right to match WTKK’s offer, and thus to keep Carr’s services locked up until 2012.

Carr and his legal team are appealing the ruling; Carr’s not returning to WRKO willingly; and in the meantime both WRKO’s afternoon shift (hosted, for the moment, by Todd Feinburg) and WTKK’s morning drive (where Michael Graham is holding forth for now) remain in limbo. (With, we’d note, the looming question of a new Boston home for Imus if he does indeed return to syndication - could that be WRKO’s cue to cut its losses on the flailing Tom Finneran morning show and install former WTKK fixture Imus in its morning slot?)

So, was it me, or have they started calling him Todd *Whineburg*, now?
