Fwd: Shake-up at WEEI

That's because WVEI has a horrible signal!  Sure, it sound fine in 
Worcester, Auburn and parts of Shrewsbury, but everywhere else it's 
static-y or downright unlistenable, especially at night.  When I lived 
in Northboro a few years back, I could barely pull the station in after 
sunset.  850 actually came in better, if you can believe that!  WTAG has 
solid coverage throughout Central Mass, both day and night.  It's a 
better value for the Sox to be on WTAG, even if Entercom isn't bringing 
in the local revenue from Worcester.  WVEI's day signal is OK enough for 
them to simulcast WEEI's daytime programming, but not much else.  Heck, 
I think 1440 just runs satellite sports after 6pm on nights where 
there's no Pawsox game.  They don't even bother simulcasting Ted 
Sarandis' show--at least that was the case the last time I was in 
Worcester at night.
