RE: Sandy gets own show--on WMEX
The following is the WMEX press release:

SANDY SHACK TO JOIN 1510 AM WMEX ON JANUARY 4!

Longtime multi-media Bostonian Sandy Shack To launch New Daily Afternoon Drive Time Radio Show [12pm to 3 pm] on the City’s Hottest New Station 1510 AM WMEX Boston.
Sandy Shack is an award winning broadcaster with over 20 years' of experience in the Boston local, New England regional and nation markets. She is best known as the Executive Producer of the syndicated juggernaut The Howie Carr Show where she appeared as the voice of reason to Howie's rants while periodically poking the bear when she was inclined. She was also his permanent fill in host bringing a new slant on the pressing issues of the day to Howie's audience.
A native to Massachusetts, Sandy grew up splitting her time between Cape Cod and Washington D.C. These early roots in the nation's Capitol instilled in her a love of politics which she pursued on Capitol Hill with jobs ranging from senate page to Senate Select Committee staff member. Sandy is a graduate from Boston College Law School with a Juris Doctorate and background in economics. Sandy began her broadcasting career in the legal wing of RKO General to which she was quickly drafted by the programming department of the company's Boston station, WRKO. Sandy quickly learned the art of producing with the Boston Celtics, Boston Red Sox and legal advice shows culminating with the two National Radio Hall of Fame inducted shows: The Jerry Williams Show and The Howie Carr Show.
Speaking of her new show Sandy Said “ Who says dreams don't come true! I hope everyone who has been so supportive over the years comes and joins me at my new home 1510 WMEX for my very own show!”
Bryan Berner Sr General Manager of 1510 WMEX "We are all excited to bring Sandy into the 1510 WMEX family.Sandy is a perfect match for what we are doing here at 1510 WMEX"

RE: Sandy gets own show--on WMEX
Wow! I wonder if this was planned, ie why Steve had been alternating days as on-mic producer in recent weeks/months.

And if not, I wonder if this could end up like a Johnny Carson/Joan Rivers thing, ie Johnny never speaking to Joan again after she unexpectedly started her own shown.

It certainly raises some questions...

- Why did Sandy leave WRKO with Howie, only to (presumably) leave his show 1 year later?
- Were they phasing her out of the show this fall by having Steve up front every other day?
- Was Christmas Eve her last day on the show?
- Did she have his blessing?
- Could she leverage his syndicated network down the road to eventually have a 12-7PM programming block?
- How are Kuhner's ratings?

Got that email too; the text number was prob the same one Howie was using when he started with his brief WMEX run.

The 67076 text number is a texting service (Callfire I think?).

I do find it interesting that the Howie Carr Show mailing list was used for her show. One has to assume that either she has his cooperation, or else someone got ahold of the list Smile
