    Why would the Athletic buy it? There’s going to be a lot of subscriber overlap and they’ve already effectively stunted the growth of BSJ. Stranger things have happened but it’s just a matter of time at this point.

    Greg Bedard's - Boston Sports Journal

    The newsroom at LVRJ confirmed today that Bedard no longer works there. 3 months. Not a good look.

    Even Shank has to bend the knee to his daddy, Linda Pizutti Onassis, every once in a while.

    Greg Bedard's - Boston Sports Journal

    Yes. There were some rumblings that Bedard was trying to sell to the Athletic in the spring, at the same time he was trying to get a job in a pro personnel department, and he was turned away.

    The Greg Hill and Danielle Murr show on 'EEI

    2 Reasons. Hill works cheaper than Callahan and removing Callahan from EEI got Bob Murchison and Shirley Leung from the Globe to stop calling and emailing EEI's advertisers.

    When you’re a national company in anything you’re going to have sites to provide presence and you’re going to have profit centers that significantly impact company wide margins. That’s what WEEI was. They’re a major reason why Entercom is missing earnings targets.

    Its not how much the spend on talent, it’s how much ad revenue they’re pulling in. WEEI’s ad rates have adjusted down significantly over the last year. They’re also stuck with a financially onerous agreement to broadcast the Red Sox through 2023. The station was a big profit center before and...

    I don’t think that is what I posted. Thanks for your reply.

    https://twitter.com/defnotgg/status/1029477247743414272?s=21 There’s Jim Murray wishing that a caller’s children die. Bertrand implying that Hanley Ramirez can’t read. The strange repeated use of the term “the player” primarily when discussing minority players, seeking to frame them as...

    The state of Boston sports talk radio

    There are things said on 98.5 that are every bit as objectionable as what is said on WEEI, yet never reported on. That’s because 98.5 is seen as affable dad jeans radio, but still... That’s most likely Inarticulate Lou’s complaint.

    Hill pulls the same ratings that Callahan got fired for but he’s viewed as safe. Go into the tweets of Hill and Spaz, it’s littered with homo this and fag that. Murchison may be back for seconds. It’s completely dishonest for Leung to ignore that the WEEI morning show got gutted, and then...

    The Baseball Paper’s Op-Ed editor and a sociopathic centimillionaire in Metrowest successfully conspired to kill a radio station. Do you want to stake your livelihood on trying to make Mike Mutnansky listenable? Gerry was winding down but two years ago that was the most popular local show in...

    There isn’t enough talent in the Boston market for two radio stations because the dinosaurs - Ordway, Callahan. Shaughnessy, Buckley, etc., were able to hold on for too long and keep young talent from developing. Especially Ordway. WEEI cast a wide net looking for replacements and netted...
