ENTERCOM Sports WEEI-F/BOSTON has inked morning "DENNIS AND CALLAHAN" co-host JOHN DENNIS to a new contract. The deal, first reported by the BOSTON GLOBE's CHAD FINN, was confirmed TUESDAY by the station.
Co-host GERRY CALLAHAN agreed to a new deal in AUGUST. Terms of the deal with DENNIS were not disclosed.
Saying that there was no Plan B if DENNIS did not ink a new deal, VP/Market Manager PHIL ZACHARY said in a press release issued midday TUESDAY, “Since the day I arrived here our goal has been to reinvigorate one of AMERICA’s most revered sports audio brands around NEW ENGLAND’s most listened-to morning show. JOHN, GERRY and (co-host) KIRK MINIHANE deliver consistently high ratings, and garner endless media scrutiny, precisely because they’re authentic and unflinching in their opinions, just like most New Englanders.”
DENNIS and CALLAHAN joined WEEI for middays in 1997 and moved to mornings in 1999.
