Hopefully Wolfe, Dennis and Callahan follow him out the door.

edit: Just noticed it's been almost 2 years since getting rid of Dale and Holley probably the worst thing WEEI has ever done. They should have put Dale and Holley on during the afternoons and fired Ordway. Now they are in shambles.

Does he hate WEEI as a whole or just D&C? I know there's been some back and forth between Finn and D&C, particularly about the ratings that Finn reported being crap.

Oh the whole shebang. He has attacked shows and the station as a whole.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but Finn is the media columnist/critic for the Globe, right? Therefore, isn't it his job to be critical of a media outlet? I know he's been very critical of Gresh and Zo as well as D&C, so it's not like he's taking shots at just one station.

My dream is to see a new WEEI without the same tired people on the airwaves. The hosts they have today basically have nothing but contempt for the callers and listeners. There are a few exceptions like Holly and Merloni, but the rest of them are condescending as F.

I never stated that he singles them out, just that he does not like that station.

If he has been critical of Gresh and Zo he is not doing it enough.

He does a regular chat on boston.com and he rips on Gresh pretty often in them. Last week he even called Gresh's schtick a rip off of Felger's contrarian act, but minus the self deprecation that makes Felger tolerable.

I'd say minus the knowledge of sports as well regardless of what you consider Felger's to be.

I am sure Brady will love talking to him Monday mornings rather than D+C.

I believe Morty and his buddies are Yankee fans. I think Mustard and Johnson have that market cornered.

No and I can understand why you would ask.

I am a fan of WEEI and defended it but have bashed them for lack of hockey talk over the years.

The same can be said for the Hub I am a fan of it but bash them over things they do as well.

You have to figure that their audience skews heavily towards the older set. Even when you listen, it's like watching a grandmother trying to figure out how to turn on a new tv...

I love Felger's nickname for the 3rd line, the 'high glass' line
