Now this, my friends, is called "speculation," as oppoosed to what Dean
Johnson practices, which is called "journalism." :)  BTW, Imus confirmed
much of what Johnson reported over the weekend *except* the calls of the
station picking up the show after Aug 24th.  He said the winning station
offered *twice* what WEEI had offered to renew and that it would be on FM.
The station's identity will be revealed soon.  And of course the I-man
wasted no time ripping WEEI's management for bungling the negotiations and
putting out a bogus story to cover their butts. :)

BTW, it's great to learn that WBRU is not in fact for sale.  I don't know
what I found more offensive: the selling price or the identity of the buyer!

Take care,
