It’s a weird situation—maybe if he goes on air and
attacks Jason and Julie, etc.—but keep in mind if he
gets fired from ‘RKO and jumps to ‘TKK, his sponsors
will have it fresh in their minds what he did...
...for example suppose he has a DePetro moment. Would
they want to sponsor “Damaged Goods”? But yes, who knows.
The piece from All Access is quoted on SaveWRKO.com
in its entirety. It can also be seen at http://www.allaccess.com (though you may need to be a member to see it) by going to Net News and scrolling down. More
from it: “Now, which of the stations, if either, will sign up for the return of DON IMUS in syndication through ABC RADIO NETWORKS, possibly in JANUARY? IMUS aired on WTKK before his firing earlier this year by CBS RADIO. WTKK’s loss of CARR means that the morning slot for which CARR was ticketed remains open, with middayer MICHAEL GRAHAM continuing to hold down the morning fort for now.”
two comments from savewrko.com:
Returning to WRKO would be in Howie’s interests to the extent that it would prevent damages from accruing during the pendency of his appeal. If he is ultimately successful, he can then jump ship.
Brian Maloney (Radio Equalizer/SaveWRKO.com) replied:
If he walks through Guest Street’s door again even once, it will be permanent. Talk about conceding defeat.
I think Howie’s sponsors are smart enough to figure out what’s going on and I don’t think they will hold it against him if he decides to shoot his mouth off on the air. Most of Howie’s sponsors will follow him wherever he goes,,Howie is a big talent and has a huge following, we all know what’s going on here and it would be a wonderful thing if Howie gets fired, gets hired at TKK and takes ALL his sponsors with him, RKO will NEVER be the same.
