Howie Carr's show exited not only Burlington VT and Keene NH this week but also 
WTPL-FM in Hillsboro/Concord NH (which has replaced it with ESPN's Dan Patrick,
a show called "New Hampshire Today", and a simulcast of Ch 9 news). I knew a third
station had dropped Howie (due to higher fees) and was pretty sure that WTPL
was that station...

Now today someone wrote into the Howie Carr live thread I do on Free Republic,
someone who lives and works in the Concord area and was frustrated that the show
is gone (was told they wanted to keep it but it wasn't being offered anymore?
Or maybe "not at a price we could afford"). He said he couldn't pick up Howie's
stations in Boston, Portland, New London NH, or Worcester where he works and can only hear
about 10 minutes of the show via WRKO on his drive home.

I don't know if WGIR would want to pick up Howie (they'd have to delay
Hannity to carry Carr live). Who else-- WKXL in Concord? But they have a block
of local news/talk in afternoons, so unless they wanted to put him on
via tape delay... (Oh, and the man who wrote me says he can't stream him
at his job...)
