Part of the response from WRKO included the fact that the Boston Metro was
expanded to include areas where WRKO does not have a strong signal after
dark. That is a legitimate issue. Changing the makeup of the market is
going to change the results of the ratings.
I think part of Howie's ratings problems is that he gets old fast. I only
tune in occasionally and I have to admit that I find the trash talk
entertaining when I do, but if I listened everyday, it would get tiring.
I wonder if the trend of talk radio ratings being down across the board
nationally is also a factor?
I do find it funny that a newspaper columnist would knock a radio station for
having a smaller and older audience. That's happening to newspapers year
