IMHO, I'd say both. The Globe article stated Ordway had signed a 5 year 
contract paying $1 million a year with out-clauses if certain ratings 
benchmarks weren't met. One of those out-clauses apparently resulted in his 
salary being cut in half in 2011. Depending on the wording of the contract 
I'm guessing he'll receive some sore of severance package and the Globe 
reports Salk will be making much less that Ordway, which helps Entercom's 
bottom line.

And with a new host comes a chance for WEEI to re-image with a new PM drive
