WRKO might be a little more lenient with Howie saying
rude remarks because Howie got better ratings than
DePetro did. But after awhile they might get tired
of getting listener and SPONSOR complaints (that was a key
reason why they let DePetro go—crappy ratings plus
sponsor complaints, who needs him?) and they’d let him go.
But...then he gets to WTKK and sponsors, remembering
the ‘controversial’/’offensive’ things he had said on
WRKO, are shy about buying time. Here WRKO would laugh
their butt off, because even though Howie might be
getting good ratings on the FM side, he’s not
making WTKK any money..
(though they wouldn’t be laughing at Howie taking
listeners away from the Felon. Of course I’ll bet there
aren’t that many to take away from Tommy Taxes as it is...)
A “reliable source” says Howie is returning to WRKO—with,
as we “furries” say, his tail between his legs.
http://www.savewrko.com quotes a bit in All Access
saying that he’s giving up his attempt to go to WTKK
and they say this info is from “a reliable source”.
“CARR has been trying to make the jump despite the court ruling that upheld ENTERCOM’s matching of GREATER MEDIA’s multi-year contract offer, but ALL ACCESS sources say to expect CARR back on the air with WRKO shortly and for WTKK to move on.”
