Radio legend Eddie Andelman says his WTKK (96.9 FM) Sunday night show Dec.
26 will be the last one of his career. By his count, Andelman has done more
than 13,000 shows.

I don't think he was forced out as he was buying the time from 96.9 and he
has his loyal friends.

While The Sports Huddle was not the first sports talk show in Boston it
certainly became the leader especially on Wyoming, Blasting and Zoning. It
sputtered for a few years on WEEI and can roaring back in the 80's on WHDH.
Eddie certainly helped WEEI when it became all sports but he could not stand
to be in the same room with Ordway.

Eddie lost his fastball years ago but his place in a Boston Radio hall of
Fame is secure.

It all started when the owner of WUNR heard Eddie and 2 friends arguing
sports at a Boston bar and he put them on the air.
