Obie will be doing the international feed thru the World Series.

Entercom wants Obie to take over as #1 when Joe decides to retire.
Frankly Joe didn't care about the end result he just wanted Trupiano

Under previous Red Sox ownership Joe had clout going back to 1989 when
Ken Coleman was fired for Bob Star and when Star decided to return to
LA Joe became #1.

Joe has been doing the Sox now for 26 years and he will leave on his own terms.

The Red Sox ownership would in a perfect world move Orsillo to radio
and Obie to NESN but they can live with things right now.
