Actually, the Bob Oakes on WBUR had been on WEEI back when it was a 
news station.  According to the Fitchburg Sentinel, the Bob Oakes on 
WBUR is a graduate of Mt. Wachusett Community College (1974) and he 
came to WBUR when WEEI changed format.  There is no mention on the 
WBUR bio nor on the Sentinel story that he ever worked at WBZ, but he 
may people do get around!
