My Plan
D&C --- WRKO
M&M -- Mornings
D&H -- Midday or Dale and someone else
Try and hire Bertrand for afternoons and pair him with someone new or keep Holley


Who is this Salk guy? I've never heard of him.

I'll never forget Ordway making fun of the Bruins and Bruins fans a few years ago with his "HAWKEY TAWK" crap. BYE!

now i have a serious question - how much of all the stuff we hated about this station was each individual host and how much was it Jason Wolfe telling them what to say? who is really at fault here for the downfall of this local radio giant?

Exactly what I was thinking.

The rise of the Bruins was the downfall of weei. I think Wolfe underestimated the amount of Bruins fans he had listening, only by default though. Then came 98.5, and the toothpaste was out of the tube by then. Its been about three years, and they're still working on repairing their image with Bruins fans.

who's next? i'm guessing planet Mikey nation or whatever it's called now? have no idea what his ratings are like but talk about an act wearing thin. He was (somewhat) of a breath of fresh air about 20 years ago.

His NECN show was really funny back before ESPN really took off. Now it's just him talking about various tattoos he's gotten on his ass because of bets he's lost. Tired.

It's too bad that Felger and Mazz rarely talk hockey now and when they do its because felger watched a highlight or two of a game.

When they decided pushing politics and playing king maker was more important than talking hockey or any other winter sport, they made a ankle breaking misstep. It turned off a lot of people. The Hub came along not too long after, so you can figure out where those folks went.

Maybe WEEI is finally paying for crapping on the Bruins fanbase for years.

Is he on or did they make the move officially? The article says he was on his way out, not that they'd pulled the trigger yet...

He's on right now and he tweeted this

Glenn Ordway ‏@BigOWEEI
Ready for the most #honest radio show I've ever done @2 on WEEI


I hope he rips Wolfe, Julie Kahn and tells about how John Dennis and Gerry Callahan hold secret Klan meetings in the New Era building.
