Herald says that while Kim Carrigan formerly of Ch 7 has done some WRKO fill ins, she
"was mum yesterday on the buzz that she’s joining WRKO radio’s morning-drive show following the exit of talkmeister Tom Finneran". Also I have heard Howie mention on air "I hope they don't
pick up my contract". Yes it seems under Howie's WONDERFUL deal, they have the option to keep
him for 2 more years.http://www.bostonherald.com/business/media/view.bg?articleid=1061135163&srvc=rss&utm_source=twitterfeed&utm_medium=twitter&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+bostonherald%2Fbusiness+%28Business+-+BostonHerald.com%29
The article reveals WRKO's stellar ratings put them in a three way tie for 24th place in 25-54
>>The five-year contract for the station’s star — afternoon-drive host and Herald columnist Howie Carr — expires in the fall, and the station has the right to renew him for another two years.
“I’m hoping I can escape from AM radio,” Carr said yesterday.
Also WGAN's facebook said he was to be on with them this morning (I didn't hear) to "discuss his future at WRKO" among other things. Yes this is yet another post about Howie
but evidently Entercom values him SO much that they may be willing to let him stay in their
employ another couple years, and RKO can continue to get such awesome ratings. No word
what ratings would be like if he wound up on Morrissey Blvd (96.9) or Cabot Rd in Medford (1200
and poss 101.7)
