That was fast: mere hours after announcement of Severin to WXKS 1200, I hear that WTKK 96.9, his former station, is shuffling “deck chairs on the Titanic”. Jim and Margery still 6-10, Meehan 10-noon, Smerconish 12-3, I’iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiim Michael Graham 3-7 (opposite Mr. James Severino), TBA 7 p for now

Boston talk radio station WTKK is shaking up its on-air lineup as Jay Severin prepares to debut on rival talker WXKS-AM (1200).
The sudden switch pits Michael Graham against Severin (his former TKK colleague) in afternoon-drive.
Starting tomorrow, Graham will be behind the mic from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. on WTKK-FM (96.9). Graham, a Herald columnist, is currently heard from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Ex-FOX 25 chopper reporter Doug Meehan, who replaced Severin, is losing two hours off his show and has been bumped to 10 a.m. to noon.
Severins 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. show rolls out Thursday. Severin was fired from WTKK in April after he went on the air and claimed to have had sex with throngs of former female workers.
Im offering the afternoon drive guarantee, Graham said in a press release sent out today. Let me ride home with you and youll know a little bit more and have more fun than any place else on the dial.
Jim Braude and Margery Eagan will remain in morning-drive from 6 a.m. to 10 a.m. The syndicated Michael Smerconish will air from noon to 3 p.m.
