McPhee from WTKK to WRKO
Back in the Fall, WTKK decided not to renew Michelle McPhee's contract. Since then they have not named a replacement, but have been filling the night spot with part-time and rotating hosts. Some wonder if WTKK is dialing back it's expence and committment to have a local host in the evenings.
It didn't take long before WRKO decided she would be a good fit, when they let loose Charlie Manning and put Michelle into the 1PM to 3PM weekday time slot.
Manning out - McPhee in - at WRKO
Charlie Manning, while politically knowledgable, did not have the most charisma on the air....something that was probably needed to replace Rush Limbaugh when he moved to WXKS.
Michelle, is one of the hardest working people in Boston media. She speaks her mind, and upsets a lot of people along the way.
I am glad to see WRKO doing local programming in that slot....istead of turning it over to more syndication.
