WRKO's Feinburg Promotes Schilling Senate Run
January 30, 2007 at 5:46 AM (PT)
ENTERCOM Talk WRKO-A/BOSTON interim midday host TODD FEINBURG's topic on who listeners would like to see run against incumbent Sen. JOHN KERRY (D-MA) in 2008 yielded an idea that set FEINBURG off on an online campaign to make it a reality: RED SOX pitcher CURT SCHILLING. SCHILLING was thought to be retiring after the 2007 season, and FEINBURG decided to put a "SCHILLING FOR SENATE" poll and online petition on WRKO's website.
Several local news outlets picked up on FEINBURG's campaign, and SCHILLING himself showed up on MONDAY's show to downplay the possibility (he also told sister Sports WEEI-A that he will likely pitch again in 2008) and say that he supports Sen. JOHN MCCAIN (R-AZ) for President in 2008.
FEINBURG, WRKO's evening host, has been filling in for the midday slot for a while now. Will the station be making the arrangement more permanent anytime soon?
