Carr Returning To WRKO?
November 5, 2007 at 5:36 AM (PT)
ALL ACCESS hears word from a reliable source that HOWIE CARR will be returning to ENTERCOM Talk WRKO-A/BOSTON after failing to convince the courts to allow him to jump to crosstown GREATER MEDIA Talk WTKK. CARR has been trying to make the jump despite the court ruling that upheld ENTERCOM's matching of GREATER MEDIA's multi-year contract offer, but ALL ACCESS sources say to expect CARR back on the air with WRKO shortly and for WTKK to move on.
Now, which of the stations, if either, will sign up for the return of DON IMUS in syndication through ABC RADIO NETWORKS, possibly in JANUARY? IMUS aired on WTKK before his firing earlier this year by CBS RADIO. WTKK's loss of CARR means that the morning slot for which CARR was ticketed remains open, with middayer MICHAEL GRAHAM continuing to hold down the morning fort for now.
