ENTERCOM Sports WEEI-A/BOSTON is trumpeting a "major announcement" due THURSDAY morning (9/8) at 8a (ET) during JOHN DENNIS and GERRY CALLAHAN's morning show.
Could this be the long-rumored move to FM or simulcast? ALL ACCESS is hearing MONDAY (9/12) is a possibility for a flip to FM and Adult Hits WMKK (93.7 MIKE FM) the most likely destination. WEEI has been battling an FM format competitor, CBS RADIO Sports WBZ-F (98.5 THE SPORTS HUB), for the last two years.
Shortly after ALL ACCESS originally posted this item WEDNESDAY afternoon, the BOSTON GLOBE, citing its own sources, reported that it had confirmed the flip of MIKE FM to a WEEI simulcast.
