>>But the question thru all this is why all the cancellations suddenly....?

It sounds like Entercom, whom I believe is currently syndicating him, has
asked for higher fees from stations...a post earlier on this list (Bill
O'Neill) said that Howie appeared on the WVMT morning show to explain
it. Bill said "Indications are that the rights fees were to be raised
to exorbitant levels when considering market rank and size." The
SaveWRKO blog opined, "It appears the issue is related to a lack of regional ad sales."

It could be that Jerry Doyle was more affordable for WVMT to run. Over at
WKBK, they decided to put their local late-morning show in the slot,
with syndie Glenn Beck taking over for his previous slot:

"Starting January 22nd - The Eric Scott show moves to 3p-6p Monday through Friday
with live and local talk!"
