Stunt or not?

Bruce Allen of Boston Sports Media offers five reasons why the “Dennis & Callahan” lockout might be a stunt, but says he really doesn’t think that it is. Among other things, he cites Entercom sources who claim John Dennis and Gerry Callahan are looking for as much as $1.5 million apiece annually. Not much laugh potential there.

I doubt it’s a stunt, too, but you never know. Allen points to the time that Mike Adams locked himself inside the studio in order to demand a contract, an incident that was later revealed to be a hoax. But that was at least semi-amusing. What’s happening now isn’t funny or even all that interesting, my own incessant posting on the subject notwithstanding.

A $2 million reward (II)


“D&C” headed to WCRB?


  1. Anonymous

    Well, since the well of speculation is drying up, let’s shine a light on a very little-discussed dilemma developping here:Whose deal do you do first? Who jumps ship first? Thanks to EntercomBoston’s idiocy, we have two competing interests here: Is Howie staying in his slot? if yes, then D&C will have leverage with less ‘heavy’ competition in the morning dial and will have an easier time with advertisers and ratings. Is he leaving? then he is competition to them, whereever they end up and that affects their ability to compete and demand high salalries. And then, would Entercom have a more eager reason to at least entice D&C if Howie is gone anyway? Would they come closer to the $1.5 million demand? I think so.Are D&C going first? does that make it harder for Entercom to let Howie go easily without a tough fight? I am not sure if Howie is coordinating with D&C and what they think of each other’s plight.N.

    Speaking of Gayle and Laura, what’s up with their claim that WCRB is ditching classical for sports? I have to imagine they just completely freaked out the local non-profits. Does anyone know if there is anything to that claim?
