WTKK to WRKO: We dont understand your conduct
In the wake of Howie Carr filing an appeal late Friday, WTKK-owner Greater Media released this statement yesterday:
We fully support Howie Carrs appeal and welcome a second opinion on his career options. We do not understand the Courts decision to give Mr. Carr the stark choice between unemployment and continuing in a position he intended to leave when his contract expired in September.
“We also dont understand Entercoms conduct. At Greater Media, we believe our first and foremost obligation is to our employees and we cannot imagine a situation in which we would force a valued employee to work against his will rather than allow him to capitalize on a rare opportunity to take his career to the next level.
Well, Greater Media can certainly talk the talk. I wonder, if they were on the other side of this conflict, if they would be walking the walk?

LET MY HOWIE GO!!
It is obvious that RKO is scared that Howie is going to kill Finneran in a head to head matchup. So that is why Howie is stuck in Limbo. I don’t mind Todd Fienburg, he’s OK, but RKO has really ticked me off with this whole situation. I would have continued listening to Howie’s vacated slot but I’m boycotting it until the situation is resolved.-—Justy
I’m sure Fienberg is a nice guy but Howie he ain’t... I’ve quit tuning in over the web for now cause it’s just not worth it anymore!!! I wonder if Howie called the judge out for doing something a few years ago or what? How many more!!!—anonymous
