I will admit that he’s not as bad as I thought he’d be....but he’s still pretty bad. He has no idea how to put together a show day to day....and to help to grow the show long-term.

When I've heard him, sometimes he's pretty good -- on his own! But he was having Warren Tolman in as co-host about once a week -- how desperate do you have to be to invite Warren Tolman to bail you out? He's even had Kerry (yes, John Kerry!) in to help things out. Makes him sound too often like the PR person for the DNC. That and his unaccountable worship of "elected officials."

UPDATE from the Herald:
Howie Carr BANNED From WTKK—For Now

by Laurel J. Sweet

A state Appeals Court judge today forbid Boston Herald columnist Howie Carr to take over the morning drive show at WTKK (96.9) while his battle to free himself from his contract with WRKO drags out in court.

In other words, there’s no telling when Carr will return to the airwaves.

Judge Andrew Grainger also told Carr, one of the city’s most popular talk jocks and a best-selling author, he could forget about pleading his case to the full Appeals Court.

“This is not one of those extraordinary cases that warrant appellate consideration prior to full judgment,” Grainger sniffed in his nine-page decision.

“In these circumstances, there is no good reason for opening the door to mulitiple appeals when the issues may all be argued together as the conclusion of the case.”

FM station ’TKK has reportedly offered Carr $7 million to jump ship at AM ’RKO (680), where he has insisted he no longer wants to work. The station continues to advertise Carr as its talent, even though he has been off the air for weeks.
