WRKO Cancels McGuirk Appearance

BERNARD MCGUIRK won't be getting a guest shot at ENTERCOM Talk WRKO-A/BOSTON after all, as the station pulls the plug on the scheduled WEDNESDAY-FRIDAY gig co-hosting with morning man TOM FINNERAN this week.
GEORGE REGAN, a PR agent speaking for ENTERCOM, told the BOSTON HERALD that VP/Market Mgr. JULIE KAHN and PD JASON WOLFE "decided not to go ahead with the guest hosting of BERNIE this WEDNESDAY, THURSDAY, and FRIDAY. Maybe in the future. But not at this time."
The appearance of the former "IMUS IN THE MORNING" producer and sidekick known for edgy humor and character voices drew protest from some African-American community leaders who planned a protest at the station's offices; the HERALD reports that KAHN called THE BLACK COMMUNITY Director SADIKI KAMBON personally to tell him MCGUIRK's appearance had been cancelled.
Maybe in the future. But not at this time.
