WRKO site has Virtual Howie

I heard a commercial voiced by Howie on WRKO within the past week. 
Presumably the advertiser hasn't pulled it so WRKO had to run it. But 
I'd wager that nobody at Entercom was inclined to go to the advertiser 
and ask whether they wanted new talent to voice their spot. Doing so 
would only have reminded the advertiser of Howie's absence and given 
the advertiser a reason to cancel the rest of the contract. Moreover, 
isn't Entercom's official position still that Howie will be back at 
Guest St in the not-so-distant future?

Unbelievable. No Howie on the air at WRKO but you can have him on your 
computer by going to
http://www.wrko.com and clicking on Virtual Howie. It plays sound 
clips of Howie talking. Click on each one to hear it
when you get there. (Today some kind of legal meeting between the 
parties is due to take place.)

Take it away mumbles
Is this fair?

For a station that may lose Howie soon (but who knows with all this 
legal stuff) it's puzzling. How
long have they been working on this? Again go to WRKO site and it's 
right up top.
