Celtics are going to end in a few weeks, so I don't think Gary's  
dismissal was due to overwork.  It was simply a numbers game.  Middays  
were the lowest rated daypart on the station.  I think the Sports Hub  
is hoping that Gresh & Zolac will attract a younger audience more in  
line with the rest of the day and to counter the older skewing Dale &  
Holley show at WEEI.  98.5 really exudes a more youthful vibe than  
WEEI, and Tanguay just didn't fit that presentation.
