Julie Kahn and her assistant Little Me, aka, The Dwarf, suspended Howie Carr from his daily WRKO radio show on Friday for making derogatory comments about WRKO and its owner Entercom.
As Howie is want to say “Entercom Happens”.
Entercom has taken the once powerhouse ’68 WRKO and turned it into a ratings disaster worthy of Carr’s insults.
Nonetheless, it was reported that Howie Carr is making nearly $1 Million/year at WRKO.
Makes one wonder if Howie Carr’s erratic behavior beyond the major faults of WRKO/Entercom has to do with Howie Carr’s latest illness and MGH hospitalization. He fell dizzy at a Wellesley restaurant several weeks ago and was rushed to the MGH for tests. Since then Carr’s on-air behavior has been more erratic if not irrational.
For local talk radio buffs it reminds them of the late David Brudnoy’s on-air behavior shortly before it was revealed he was suffering from AIDS.
Now, not saying Howie Carr has AIDS before you jump on me but one wonders if Carr’s erratic behavior is related to his recent hospitaliztion.
