This afternoon on WBCN, former morning man Charles Laquidara was on with afternoon drive personality Hardy and was listing every single person with whom he had worked on the air throughout his 25 year career. In the middle of this long reading, Laquidara suddenly congratulated Hardy on his new gig at The Sports Hub, CBS Radio’s new sports radio station that premieres this Thursday.
At first, Hardy tried to stop him, but as Laquidara kept on congratulating, Hardy then announced that he will be hosting a weekend show on 98.5 The Sports Hub/WBZ-FM with former Red Sox announcer Jerry Trupiano. It’s not known the exact timeslot, I’m efforting that right now. It’s nice to know that Jerry will be back on the local airwaves.
Jerry was let go from Red Sox radio broadcasts after the 2006 season and had been freelancing for Westwood One Radio for the College World Series and other college sports. Recently, he had begun hosting his own podcasts. Now he’ll have a larger forum for his opinions.
UPDATE, 8/11, 2:33 p.m: Hardy during a crossover with WBCN’s Adam 12 says the show with Trup premieres this Saturday at 8 a.m. I’ll be listening.
