WRKO Inks Finneran For Mornings
January 11, 2007 at 9:29 AM (PT)
As expected, ENTERCOM Talk WRKO-A/BOSTON has signed former former MASSACHUSETTS House Speaker and MASSACHUSETTS DEMOCRATIC PARTY power TOM FINNERAN to do mornings starting FEBRUARY 12. The station announced the multi-year deal on the air today (1/11). Incumbent morning host SCOTT ALLEN MILLER will stay on until FINNERAN starts.
FINNERAN pleaded guilty to federal obstruction of justice charges last FRIDAY (1/5) in a case stemming from FINNERAN's alleged misrepresentation of his participation in a legislative redistricting that minimized minority voters' impact; FINNERAN allegedly misstated his role in the 2001 plan when testifying in a civil suit by the BLACK POLITICAL CAUCUS.
