Although WRKO will be carrying just the two final hours of the Laura Ingraham show,
and for now, WNSH-AM 1570, Beverly airs all three hours, I'm sure the management
"geniuses" at WRKO will figure out that it's not a good idea to have a
radio station pretty much in the same market carrying the same mid-morning
show at the same time. (WCRN of course is in a different market.) Thus, WNSH
will probably have to find a new female-hosted show to place in that time
R: Apparently WNSH is willing to make changes to its lineup; they replaced that
trainwreck of a talk show, Tammy Bruce (who seemed to attract NO callers at all) with
Monica Crowley in the same time slot. Well there is one obvious candidate, although
her show is definitely NOT a right-wing clone like Ingraham and Crowley: namely
Stephanie Miller. I'd guess that the return of Steph to the Boston market would even
engender a column from Clea Simon of the Boston Globe! *Um, let me rephrase that:
I'd guess that the return of Steph to the Boston market would even engender a column
from Jessica Heslam of the Chicopee Herald. This bears watching.
*For those of you haven't heard the news, Clea Simon's "Radio Tracks" column is
being deleted from the Globe's pages.
