Not sure where you heard that but Howie IS on.

I heard it from Todd's own mouth yesterday morning, he said it more than once. However, he should have said that mcscreamer was filling in the last hour instead of making it sound like she was doing the whole show. Todd also said that mcscreamer wanted to do the morning show and Howie's show but cooksey wouldn't let her. Apparently she was all fired up over the debate the nite before.

Yeah, or maybe they changed their mind after he said it and asked Howie to come in to do 3-6 at least.

>>mcscreamer wanted to do the morning show and Howie’s show but cooksey wouldn’t let her.

cruel and unusual punishment for listeners, if it had been.

Fri column ping, below. First: a bit of news. There may be no more, or VERY FEW, sports pre-emptions on WRKO (I say that knowing that some will occasionally occur—maybe on weekends?) now that the switch has been pulled...namely, WEEI-FM 93.7 still has local talk and the C’s and Sox, but WEEI (AM) 850 is now
all ESPN. This also includes things like the MLB playoffs on 850.

In the past when there was a conflict you could have gotten
Sox or C’s pregame, etc. bounced to RKO but that may happen rarely if ever now. According to PD Jason Wolfe, the Red Sox have priority on WEEI-FM 93.7 and IF there’s a conflict with
a Celtics game, WEEI 850 will air the C’s. If the Celtics
are in the playoffs, the C’s would be on WEEI-FM and the
Sox on WEEI (AM).

In the past they would have put the Sox on WRKO with the C’s on both WEEI AM and FM, but apparently that won’t happen now. So little if any situations of Howie being prempted
on RKO for the VERY exciting Red Sox or Celtics game.
There still could be pre-emptions on WCRN 830, etc.
and for those in Vermont I believe the Yankees are still
on WVMT 620, so there could be pre-emptions there.

Confused? You won’t be after this next episode of
As the Radio Dial Turns...

Obama’s free ride over
By Howie Carr | Friday, October 5, 2012 | | Columnists

Is it time to bomb Libya?

If ever Barack Obama needed a “Wag the Dog” moment, this is it.

The mainstream media are still in a state of shock, disbelief. They feel worse than Seamus the dog did at the end of his roof-crate trip to Michigan.

Good luck getting a grief counselor this weekend. They’re all over at MSNBC and Morrissey Boulevard.

Never bring a community organizer to a CEO fight.

Barack was Richard III on Bosworth Field, minus the hunchback: “A teleprompter, a teleprompter, my kingdom for a teleprompter.”

We’ve all known that Barack Hussein Obama has had a free ride his entire life, but the guy is 51 years old. Did it never occur to him that perhaps at some point in his entitled life there would come a moment when he couldn’t hide behind the skirts of his guilt-ridden trust-funded moonbat acolytes?

Sometimes, dear Barack, the fault is not in the alleged racism, but in ourselves.

Put it another way, you can’t always vote present. You’re not in Springfield, Ill., anymore.

Where was the Obamaphone woman from Cleveland when he needed her?

Two of the best lines of the evening were tweeted by somebody going under the handle of @Iowahawkblog:

• “Breaking: Choom Gang revokes Obama’s membership.”

• “ ‘What the (expletive) is this? I was specifically told I’d be debating John Kerry.’ — Inside Obama’s head”

Clint Eastwood debated an empty chair. Mitt Romney debated an empty suit.

How about Al Gore blaming Barack’s wretched performance on the altitude in Denver, “the Mile High City?” So did somebody order the president to take a three-day vacation in Las Vegas?

And wasn’t he the one who three years ago advised Americans not to go to Vegas anymore?

If Michelle’s post-debate looks could kill, they’d still be scraping Barack’s remains off the walls of that building at the University of Denver. Dinner last night at the White House was hot tongue and cold shoulder.

Nice touch by Mitt to compare Barack to his “five sons,” as in, you’re acting like a child.

And he was. Even yesterday, back out on the campaign trail, Barack was telling his Obamaphone fans that Romney wasn’t willing to be held “accountable.”

Barack apparently forgot that he’s the president. He’s the one who’s supposed to be held accountable.

But people like Barack don’t expect to ever be held accountable. Truman said the buck stops here. Barack says the buck stops with you.

In his closing statement (if you can call that gibberish a statement), Barack said of American traditions, “All those things are designed to make sure that ... everybody’s getting a fair share.”

Barack finally got his fair share last night. Better late than never.
