ENTERCOM Talk WRKO-A/BOSTON inks REESE HOPKINS for middays 10a-noon ET, filling the gap left when TODD FEINBURG moved to mornings to temporarily co-host with TOM FINNERAN. The station says that FEINBURG was "offered another assignment, but declined," although ALL ACCESS hears that the resolution of FEINBURG's situation remains open.
HOPKINS was known as “CROSSOVER NEGRO REESE” as a sidekick/producer for STAR AND BUC WILD at CLEAR CHANNEL Urban WWPR (POWER 105)/NEW YORK; he also has worked as a producer for HOWARD STERN’s channels at SIRIUS SATELLITE RADIO.
“This is a dream come true for me,” said HOPKINS. “I’ve spent five years in radio in NEW YORK in a co-host position and through that experience have developed my own style and personality. Hosting my own show will allow me to be recognized individually. The BOSTON audience will get a chance to learn things about me and my views no matter how personal or painful. My show will cover all issues from politics to race relations to HOLLYWOOD. I want to thank WRKO for giving me an opportunity to fulfill this dream and I look forward to this journey with them.”
