ENTERCOM Talk WRKO-A/BOSTON morning "TOM AND TODD" co-host and former MASSACHUSETTS House Speaker TOM FINNERAN will exit the station after THURSDAY's show (5/31). FINNERAN has been hosting mornings at the station since FEBRUARY 2007. Co-host TODD FEINBURG will continue solo in mornings.
"Over the past several days, (VP of Programming) JASON WOLFE and I have been talking about various plans and opportunities which lie ahead for me and for the station," said FINNERAN. "Those opportunities are of interest to me, but are not compatible with the hours I keep and the effort I make to prepare for, and to execute, a well-informed show every morning.
"I try to learn from history and from our listeners, who in sharing some of their own histories, have been great teachers. I thank them and WRKO for a fast and fun five years."
WOLFE added, "TOM has worked very hard for WRKO these last five years and he did an excellent job. I've appreciated the opportunity to work with him, and on behalf of all of us at WRKO, we wish him nothing but the best in all his future endeavors."
