WTKK/Boston Officially Adds Michael Smerconish To Weekday Lineup
June 15, 2011 at 6:55 AM (PT)
GREATER MEDIA Talk WTKK (96.9 BOSTON TALKS)/BOSTON has officially added DIAL GLOBAL's MICHAEL SMERCONISH to the weekday schedule for 6-10p (ET). The show has been airing in the time slot since MICHELE MCPHEE exited the station last NOVEMBER; WTKK initially picked up SMERCONISH for weekends.
"Having WTKK carry my program in the evenings for the last several months has been an honor, and the results are overwhelming," SMERCONISH said. "I think it proves that my independent thinking is well suited for BOSTON and I am thrilled there is now more permanence to the relationship."
"MICHAEL is an issue to issue guy with NEW ENGLAND sensibilities and a vibe for our community," said WTKK PD GRACE BLAZER, who worked with the host when she programmed CBS RADIO Talk WPHT-A/PHILADELPHIA, SMERCONISH's home base. "His smart show makes sense for 96.9's weeknight timeslot. MICHAEL SMERCONISH is a big fan of NEW ENGLAND and you'll be able to hear MICHAEL's live and local conversation with JIM (BRAUDE) and MARGERY (EAGAN) every THURSDAY morning at 8:05 a.m. Listeners and advertisers can expect to see him around the Commonwealth too."
