    Anyone who listens to Kirk Minihane’s podcast — yeah, I do have a character flaw — could tell he was goading Callahan to walk or WEEI to fire him for weeks. Looks like the station won.

    Fifth place and getting doubled up..... guessing with all the money hes made over the years the suits figure they can pay any mope 1/4 for the same rating, and they’re probably not wrong

    I saw tweets where Callahan is blaming some guy for harassing advertisers of the show due to his's views on transgenders. He believes this led to him getting fired. Is this remotely true.

    I stopped reading after three grafs. You can see the sneering Masshole douchebaggery dripping from the words.

    Yes and no. Supposedly, the program director/ad people are scared of the activist, and “forced the morning show to change its style and content.”

    The hosts would have you believe that change is what caused their ratings to tank, and the tanking caused the firing.

    Not sure its provable that A leads to B leads to C, but the shows rating declined from 15 to 5 in 22 months

    Typical Turtle Boy garbage. (Calling the majority of EEI jocks liberal???) These knuckledraggers have political patrons, and they infiltrate the Worcester Telegram & Gazette FB comment threads ever day. They have a well-over-borderline racist jihad against a T&G columnist.
