That sounds like a poor business decision, but I suppose it depends on how much they paid for the two different shows.

For those who haven’t heard, Clear Channel owns WKOX AM 1200,
WXKS AM 1430, WXKS-FM 107.9 and WJMN-FM 94.5 in Boston. For now AM 1200 is Spanish (but with Coast to Coast overnight) but on April 1st—perhaps earlier—they will switch to a conservative talk station, most likely with the call letters of WXKS.

The lineup is scheduled to be a local morning show 6-9 am,
then Glenn Beck 9-noon, Rush 12-3, Sean Hannity 3-6 pm,
Jason Lewis 6-9 pm, TBA 9-mid., and the Coast to Coast. The
nationally syndicated shows are all distributed by Clear
Channel’s Premiere division.

Matt Siegel, host of Matty in the Morning on WXKS-FM,
said on his show yesterday that “we have an AM station
that’s going talk in about a month” and they even plan to
have Rush call in to Kiss 108 to promote it. “I don’t like his politics but I like him.”

No word yet if Rush will actually premiere Mon. on AM 1200
(the sched. launch is to be April 1) or not...if by chance he’s off WRKO but not on the new AM 1200 yet he can be picked up on

WXTK 95.1 Cape Cod
WGIR 610 Manchester NH
WHJJ 920 Prov RI
WTAG 580 Worcester

As Howie says, Entercom happens!

Jason Wolke is an idiot. He fired Pete Shepperd "The Everyman Sports Goof" last month.

Ordway sucks big time and stays with a million dollar contract on WEEI.

Soon Mikey Adams will back selling Fords or tending bar at the Halfway Cafe.

Charlie Manning is a nice guy and I wish him well.......I think he used to cover wrestling for the Herald but listening to him is as exciting as watching paint dry.

As the Rush contracts come due, Clear Channel(which owns 1,200 stations), nationwide, has moved him from the competing station(s) onto their own frequencies.

Will be interesting to see what this does to Howie’s ratings.
His show does spin off of Rush’s afternoon, topic-wise, a great deal if nothing is going on locally/regionally.

He knows what people have been listening to for the past 3 hours, he’s listening too - show prep.

Hopefully Howie can skedaddle out of WRKO ASAP

On a previous thread a few months back, a NC station had to give up Rush because Clear Channel was putting him exclusively on Clear Channel-owned stations. Not a scandal, just a business decision.

Same thing happened to a station here when ClearChannel consolidated and made an FM talker here in the Twin Cities. 5 years later that old local talk station cried uncle and changed over to Sports Talk format.

It’s usually not the old stations decision. Usually it’s a Clear channel deal

Manning, who has served as a campaign adviser to former Gov. Mitt Romney, emphasized that his new show, “The Charley Manning Show,” will be local short-lived.

Fixed it.

Charlie who? Is he another convicted felon or does he have warrants making him eligible for a show on Felon Radio?

I’m more excited about Mark Levin finally getting some airplay in Boston. Kewl. That should set a few people’s hair on fire...
