    After news broke about the Rush Limbaugh Show getting kicked to the curb by WRKO-AM in Boston, Nielsen radio market #10, I received about a dozen emails asking when I was going to comment. So, here goes. First, understand the “business of business is business” and the “business of money is money.” And it’s money not a station’s Nielsen ratings that will ultimately determine your success or failure as a personality. For most of us, revenue and ratings are connected. But, that’s not true for everyone. After Rush Limbaugh stepped over the line with his Sandra Fluke comments a few...

    BOSTON, MA – One of the more public divorces in Boston media history turns out to have been just a trial separation. Howie Carr and WRKO (680AM and 93.7FM HD-2) announced today that the legendary author, columnist and talk show host will return to the Entercom station on Monday, March 16. Carr will assume the weekday afternoon time slot he occupied on WRKO for decades, 3-7 p.m. Entercom Boston’s VP / Market Manager Phil Zachary said he believes Carr’s return was meant to be. “As the holidays passed, it became obvious to me that WRKO and Howie belong together,” he...

    WRKO radio host Howie Carr has lodged a trio of complaints against the station with the state Attorney General’s office, seeking unpaid bonuses and a pay raise in the three years since his bosses thwarted his attempt to defect to rival WTKK. The Herald received the complaints from the Attorney General’s office under a Freedom of Information Act request. Carr declined comment this week. The WRKO-AM (680) afternoon-drive talker and Herald columnist filed his most recent complaint against the station’s owner, Entercom Communications, over a month ago before he was hit with a weeklong suspension in April for badmouthing the...

    Conservative talk radio host Howie Carr of WRKO 680 AM has been suspended for a week, effective Friday, for publicly and repeatedly using his program to bad-mouth the station, a company executive said. Julie Kahn, vice president and marketing manager for Entercom Boston, which owns the station, said Carr’s behavior toward his employer has become increasingly caustic and intolerable. ‘‘His behavior and his anger at the company is unacceptable because he denigrates the company, the medium, the station, the signal, and he’s a highly, highly, highly paid employee,’’ she said.

    Last week it was noticed that WRKO Boston was running Howie Carr reruns 1-5 am instead of Coast to Coast. Apparently they lost the rights to that show to WKOX AM 1200 (which began to run it a few days later, though most of the time they're in Spanish--for now; full switch to conservative talk radio for 1200 happens in April.) Now I look at WRKO's site and it lists "Red Eye" weeknights 1-5 am. If it's what I'm thinking it is, this is the new show (new nationally, at least) hosted by Doug McIntyre of KABC and WABC fame...

The NYC and LA stations are picking up the new Doug McIntyre show from Citadel while WRKO will be re-running Howie Carr from 1-5 am And this latter case in Boston probably has to do with the fact that Clear Channel is launching a talk station in April on AM 1200, WXKS. Premiere radio syndicates Coast To Coast, Glenn Beck, Sean Hannity--and Rush Limbaugh. No doubt Coast to Coast is heading there. Premiere/Clear...

    Clear Channel plans to debut a new conservative AM talk radio station in April and is trying to steal WRKO lynchpin Rush Limbaugh - who has been on ’RKO’s airwaves for 15 years. Spanish music station WXKS-AM (1200) - which recently upgraded to 50,000 watts and is based in Newton - is flipping to a news talk format. Clear Channel is currently in talks with its subsidiary, Premiere Radio Networks, which syndicates Limbaugh’s show. Clear Channel also wants to snag Sean Hannity and Glenn Beck, whose show airs on WRKO-AM (680) on Saturday night. “We haven’t signed anything. We’re trying...

    Boisterous talkmeister Howie Carr has made no secret that he feels trapped at WRKO - but it appears he’s stuck there. Peter Smyth, chairman and CEO of radio station owner Greater Media Inc., said yesterday that he has no plans to go after Carr again. Carr’s contract with rival WRKO is up in 2012. A legal battle ensued two years ago after Carr struck a five-year deal worth up to $7 million to replace Don Imus in the morning-drive slot on Greater Media’s WTKK-FM (96.9). Carr’s bosses at WRKO-AM (680) were stunned to learn their star was jumping ship. The...

    Howie Carr does indeed have a heart. The hardboiled WRKO radio host and Herald columnist tried to dissuade a female caller - distraught over the bleak economy - from killing herself, divulging that his own grandfather committed suicide during the Depression. The caller, who identified herself as 54-year-old “Carol,” told Carr during yesterday’s show that she moved to Jonesport, Maine, three years ago, bought a $59,000 house and had been trying to get a job, without success. In a stunning on-air admission, “Carol” revealed that she swallowed 100 pills in a suicide attempt last February when she was about to...

    Former Massachusett House Speaker Thomas Finneran’s desperate bid for a last-minute presidential pardon has failed, after President Bush issued his final acts of executive clemency by commuting the prison sentences of two former U.S. border agents accused of shooting a Mexican drug dealer. A White House aide said the clock ran out for Finneran, convicted of lying about his role in legislative redistricting. Finneran enlisted the help of three former Republican governors to convince the outgoing GOP president to forgive him of the federal felony. “There are no further announcements expected regarding pardons,” White House spokesman Tony Fratto said. Neither...

    Former House speaker Thomas M. Finneran, seeking to cleanse the stain left by his 2007 conviction for obstruction of justice, is angling for a last-minute pardon from President Bush and has lined up a group of former Massachusetts governors to back his request. Finneran submitted an application for a presidential pardon last month, and the four governors - Democrat Michael Dukakis and Republicans William F. Weld, Paul Cellucci, and Jane Swift - followed up with a letter to the White House praising his integrity. Finneran has already been "severely punished," the governors wrote, citing the loss of his state pension,...

Last week, talk radio host Edward “Reese” Hopkins, a black conservative Republican whose show preceded Rush Limbaugh’s broadcast on Boston’s WRKO between December 2007 and October 2008, was arrested on charges that he sexually assaulted a friend of his stepdaughter’s in New York City in the fall of 2004.

    I almost drove off the road this morning when I heard this. Massachusetts Attorney General Bill Galvin, a surly hack who makes Joe Biden look like a wise statesman, has been slapped by a federal court for trying to disenfranchise members of the military. Seems Galvin has willfully disobeyed a federal courts' instruction to count the number of military absentee ballots returned to Massachusetts from overseas, especially US sailors and Marines. According to WRKO, Galvin has not met this requirement since he's been in office and a court finally slapped him hard. In response, Galvin claims that he doesn't have...

    Howie Carr thread. btw on Thu., some of Howie's stations like WRKO will have to cut out at 5:30 pm since Thu. night Sox game has been moved up to 6 pm (pre-game show at 5:30...WCRN doesn't carry pre-game though). The Sox (happy 500th HR, Manny!) are moving their game up an hour so it'll be over before Celtics game starts at 9.

    Howie Carr thread; Howie is on vacation all week I believe (not sure who's filling in) but if there are columns (as there was in today's Herald) I'll post 'em. Talk about the show, etc.

    Howie made his grand return to radio on Nov. 18. In this weekly thread we follow his show plus I'll post interesting columns by him, etc. There are usually daily pings Mon.-Fri. and Sun with his column.
