Howie Carr commented on the WBUR mess on his Friday show (I taped it because it was up against the Red Sox game, and heard it yesterday). He kinda felt good that Jane Christo was gone because of the tiff between Christo and Howie's friend Chris Lydon (not sure how close their friendship is...maybe just a casual acquantaince?). Howie mentioned the financial problems WBUR is having (Fybush's North East Radio Watch mentions that they owe BU $12 million) and gave this example of perhaps the overspending that goes on:

"In my office, we have a cheap AM radio tuned to the station (WRKO). I once went into WBUR and they had Bose Wave Radios playing what was on 'BUR...not music, but news!" Kinda gold-plated overspending at 'BUR, Howie? :)

No banners. No pop-ups. No kidding.
