WTKK Shuffles Its Talk Lineup



Having recently celebrated their tenth anniversary, Greater Media's WTKK-FM 96.9 is
now shuffling its talk host lineup. Don Imus is being cut back to two hours, only one
of which is live, weekdays from 5 to 7 am. Former afternoon talkers Jim Braude and Margery
Eagan begin 15 consecutive hours of live and local talk from 7 to 10 am, followed by Michael Graham (10 am to 2 pm) who gains an hour, Jay Severin (2 to 6 pm) whose show gets pushed to an earlier time, and Michele McPhee (6 to 10 pm) who gains an hour. The rest of the lineup is the syndicated Curtis Sliwa from 10 pm to 1 am and Phil Hendrie from 1 to 5 am.

Two years ago WTKK thought they would be adding Howie Carr to their lineup in morning drive but a judge ruled otherwise. Now Carr, still at WRKO till 2012,
has had a blogger calling himself "Ernie Boch III" from the left-leaning
Blue Mass Group, urging advertisers to dump their spots due to the show's content. The real Ernie Boch Jr. however, who has long supported Howie (when his family owned WXTK on the Cape, they were the first
to syndicate Howie), has denounced the "impostor" and offered a reward to find out
who he is. He told Carr, ā€œIā€™m going to tell you who he is so you can terrorize him every afternoon.ā€ The "Carr who drives Boston home" was pleased by the show of support by Boston's "car czar".

i wonder why it took so long to realize that imus wasn't doing anything for them
 
Amen!
 
Word has it the reshuffled line up just beat out the proposed line up of wall-to-wall commercials from 9:00 am - 6:00 pm. Than again, can anyone tell the difference?
 
Terrible station. Only Braude and Eagan are worth listening to. It won't be long before Severin and Graham, with their foolish shows, drive the station into the ground.

After looking at your website lynnrockets, it appears you don't like anyone except liberals.

Anyone who has a perspective different than you is dismissed simply as "silly", huh?

Maybe you should open your mind.
 
bring back the I-Man!
 
not worth listening to now that Imus ends at 7am.
tom freidman was coming up at 7, but they switched to jim and marge instead....are you kidding! another station down the tubes...
