Jen Brien gets WBZ (AM)'s overnight gig five nights a week for the next year (at least)

Why doesn't CBS just save money and shut the transmitter off from
12-5......I haven't heard anything worth listening to overnight at 1030
since Steve L left.

So she announced on last night's program (Wednesday AM 6/26). This raises
the question of whether Morgan White Jr and Bradley Jay, each of whom had
been doing one night a week for the last several months (while Brien did
three nights per week and Jordan Rich did the other two nights), have any
future as air talent on AM 1030.

I guess Brien's right-wing credentials qualified her for the job; it's clear
from last night's calls that, like the callers to AM-radio talk shows
nationwide, the audience for WBZ's overnight program is overwelmingly older
and very conservative. (That is, nearly all of the callers get their
political views from the Tea Party crowd that controls the US House and most
state governments--albeit not that of Massachusetts.) IMO, Brien should
stick to her strong suit, which is light banter of no real consequence. She
has demonstrated that she is not well informed about the deeper subjects and
appears to have little interest in ensuring that the accusations she hurls
at people whose opinions differ from her own are based on fact.
