RadioInsight.com and Boston Sports Media Watch ( http://www.bostonsportsmedia.com/2010/09/espn-radio-on-1510 ) note that 2 domain names relating to ESPN 1510 Boston have been registered. RadioInsight said the domain names were registered by a company run by Anthony Pepe of WWZN (though I could turn up no WHOIS info; private), while Boston Sports Media got a quick response from Pepe saying nothing was happening.
However it was said here last month that Bob Kraft was looking into possibly getting 1510 to
run ESPN and Revs soccer, though there was concern about the signal. Who knows what will happen, but I think ESPN started on WEEI last Oct. and if there are one year contracts, you
wonder if there could be a switch. I happen to think ESPN wouldn't mind a station like 1510
at least by day and weeknights, and perhaps they could also keep the relationship with WEEI
(overnights, baseball playoffs) though WEEI wouldn't be too crazy about that kind of situation
(2 affiliates in town, one with mostly ESPN talk shows?) Bruce Allen of BSMW also
doubts it will happen, especially given the "hype" about the affiliation last year.
But if ESPN is desperate enough to want to get its shows on/ ads run, etc...? Look at
Clear Channel which is getting its Premiere shows (and ads) cleared on WXKS now. The
ratings are so-so, for now, but they're getting the shows and ads on. Might ESPN want
