WRKO: Howie who?

Those on the WRKO mailing list are getting messages from PD
Jason Wolfe apologizing for the fact that Red Sox exhibition games are pre-empting Rush Limbaugh on weekdays. He assures listeners
that it was part of the contract with the Sox that 'RKO (and not
'EEI) carry the exhibition games, and once the season starts all
weekday afternoon games will be on WEEI except for "the two
opening days" (opening day at KC and then Fenway opening day)
which will be on WRKO.

He fails to mention Howie Carr's name--and Howie is losing at least one hour of his show due to these games. However the email does
mention a live broadcast of Howie's show from the Harp tomorrow.
Howie fans have had to resort to live streaming (unless they can pick up WGAN in Portland). Last Monday the Finneran/Carr feud
was front page news in the Herald but those who wanted to hear
Howie talk about it on WRKO found the Sox instead, and when they
went to RKO's site to get the streamcast they found...Fox Sports
Radio instead.
