WRKO advertises for full time talk host
Sat Aug 23 08:13:52 EDT 2014
WRKO is advertising a position as a full time talk show host, "someone who
lives and breathes the news cycle. Not just politics, but pop culture as
well." (Note that the address given has the wrong ZIP code, though; 02151
is Revere. Brighton is 02135.)
Howie Carr's contract ends next month and he has signed with Global Media
to syndicate his show. So this could be a sign they don't plan to sign up
with his "new" show, or possibly if this is to replace Jeff Kuhner (perhaps
if they don't sign up with Carr's new show they may try Kuhner in PM drive
and get a new host for mornings).
A third possibility is WRKO opening up a different shift for a new host but
I doubt it. Late mornings is brokered financial talk, they probably
wouldn't dump Rush, and would they try evenings at 7 pm? Doubtful.
