November 6, 2014 at 3:42 AM (PT)
ENTERCOM News-Talk WRKO-A/BOSTON afternoon host and BOSTON HERALD columnist HOWIE CARR is recovering from what the HERALD described as "minor injuries" from a two-car crash on the MASSACHUSETTS TURNPIKE WEDNESDAY afternoon (11/5).
CARR was taken to the hospital after the crash, which occurred before his show early in the afternoon, but his wife KATHY told the HERALD that he was released in the evening and is in good spirits.
ENTERCOM BOSTON VP/Market Manager PHIL ZACHARY said in a statement, "I’m sad to report our good friend and colleague HOWIE CARR was injured today in an auto accident. Those of us who know, love and respect HOWIE and his work recognize what an important day TUESDAY was for him and why he toiled through the night to compose his columns and prepare for the post-election radio show today. The Republican surge that swept across AMERICA was something HOWIE predicted and so urgently wanted to share with each of you on the air throughout the week. However, as a precaution, HOWIE will remain off the air and under observation to ensure a full recovery with no complications.”
