I predicted this.  Back before the Sports Hub came onto the scene to 
create some competition, it really didn't matter in the greater 
scheme of things whether the games were on WRKO or WEEI (I mean, 
yeah, it confused the fans, but the revenue remained in the 
family).  But now, I think WEEI wants to be THE sports station, and 
yes, to counter 98.5,as Kevin suggests.  From a programming 
standpoint, it makes lots of sense.

Meanwhile, will there be any other changes on WRKO?
