Sounds like a paid vacation, gives d&c something to rail against next week and keep ratings up for a couple weeks.

As it turns out, Kirk Minihane's week-long suspension from WEEI for comments he made about Fox Sports reporter Erin Andrews will last longer than the network's revocation of advertising from all stations owned by parent company Entercom.
Friday, Fox banned its personalities from appearing on WEEI and pulled all advertising from Entercom's 100-plus stations nationwide in response to the station's initial decision not to punish Minihane.
The network was apparently appeased by WEEI's announcement later Friday -- after the ads were pulled -- that Minihane was suspended. Fox informed Entercom Wednesday afternoon that the advertising, which industry sources have estimated at a little more than $1 million, would be restored.
"We appreciate Entercom's recognition and response to the inappropriate comments made by the WEEI host,'' said Fox Sports senior vice president of media relations Lou D'Ermilio in a statement. "It is our sincere hope both organizations can now move forward."
Entercom Boston vice president and market manager Phil Zachary said, "On our end, we consider the matter 100 percent resolved."
All 3 will be renewed. End of story.Patriot_Reign said:I'm sure Callahan will have some strong choice words towards the legitimacy of Fox and also of Entercom.
And also the Globe.
I'm sure that's what will happen, all three get slaughtered, not just one of three.
