A Catholic radio group bought out Carter's six New England radio stations
earlier this week. (There was mention of this in the Globe's radio and TV
Saturday, I think. (I can't remember the day.) Supposedly, they're also
to Raybo to host a show for them.)

It's the end of an era in Boston broadcasting. The Irish programming they
definitely had a big following for three decades and made them some decent
money. And Bernie Corbett is going to have a hard time finding an outlet to
replace for those games since every other station in the city is brokered
or won't break their format for BU sports.
