one comment to Globe article:”WRKO will get creamed in that time slot if they lose Carr. 95% of his listenership will leave with him. Seriously - ever try to listen to his show when he has a guest host, like Col. Hunt, on? It’s brutal. Howie is the king of Boston radio.”
Laura I jumped the shark for me this week when she kept going on and on whining about how Tiger Woods didn't say nice things about the other guy's family. She should do some religious-based show, her real interests are there and she speaks well about those subjects, but she and Hannity just keep saying the same things over and over til I get crazy.
I miss Jerry Williams, Gene Burns and David Brudnoy.
>>But a source with knowledge of the situation said the contretemps with Carr, which dates back to a bitter contract dispute in 2007, has escalated markedly in recent weeks and included verbal attacks on station managers. Carrs contract with the station, the source said, pays him in the neighborhood of $1 million a year, meaning the suspension could cost him between $16,000 and $17,000.
>>Carr, who is also a columnist for the Boston Herald, could not be reached for comment.
A woman who answered the phone at his Wellesley home said the radio host was in bed and could not come to the phone.
Its April break next week, so hell be off the air, she said. Theres no comment.
>>I think Howie is very upset about the way the station let Rush Limbaugh go and how theres not much left on the air, said Donna Halper, a radio consultant and media historian. Howie is just unhappy about the fact that the station is not what it was when he got there.
