WRKO up for sale or swap
Howie's flagship is WRKO 680 Boston.Owned by Entercom which is merging with CBS.The company can only own a given number of stations in the market and market share is regulated too.Today Entercom announced a list of stations it plans to divest.WRKO is one but they are keeping WEEI 850

Howie produces his own show and syndicates it to WRKO and two dozen other stations.Entercom will sell or swap WRKO..will the new owners keep the programming, or will Entercom move its talk shows to AM 850? Much is still unknown

I would assume that if WRKO gets blown up, Howie would land on some other Boston frequency.

Who knows if that goes for da Kuhner or VB/Kim though.

RE: WRKO up for sale or swap
iHeart gets WRKO and WBZ and has to get rid of WKOX
1430 I believe. iHeart may keep RKO partly as is but somehow add Rush and Sean..may keep Howie I'd think.
This is all subject to DOJ and FCC approval

Lots of trading going on.
Entercom gets Magic 106.7 from Beasley which gets CBS' 98.5 the Sports Hub.
If all goes acc to plan:

Entercom-- WEEI 850, WEEI FM 93.7, WODS FM 103.3,
WMJX FM 106.7, WAAF FM 107.3, WBMX FM 104.1

iHeart--WRKO 680, WBZ 1030, WXKS 1200 (WKOX 1430 to be divested), WJMN 94.5, WBWL 101.7, WXKS-FM 107.9, WZLX 100.7, WKAF 97.7

Beasley --WBOS FM 92.9, WBQT 96.9, WBZ FM 98.5,
WKLB 102.5, WROR 105.7, WRCA 1330 and translator on 106.1
