WEEI Will Simulcast Dennis & Callahan On NESN

Boston sports radio station WEEI has signed a deal with NESN to put its morning show, polarizing Dennis & Callahan on television. John Dennis & Boston Herald columnist Gerry Callahan are quite popular with Massachusetts conservatives as they spout Republican and right wing philosophy on their show. Most of the time, they complain about the […]

A Tuesday Night Update

As NBC’s Olympic coverage is in a lull, I turn over to NESN and find the Red Sox and Texas embroiled in a 14-13 barnburner at Fenway Park. This is after the Red Sox put up 10 runs in the 1st inning and seemed to be cruising until the 5th inning when Texas scored 8 […]

The Monday Links or the Return of Dennis & Callahan

You had a feeling that we would hear the return of John Dennis & Gerry Callahan on WEEI today and that’s exactly what happened. Usually, I don’t have WEEI on my clock radio first thing, but I made sure it was on just to make sure I would be able to hear them. Lo and […]

Back to Work Tuesday Links

They say you’re supposed to come back from a three day weekend recharged. Whomever said that should be shot. I’m not recharged. I’m dragging more than usual. I think we should have a five day weekend so we come back Thursday, then leave for home on Friday. That’s what we should have. I think I […]

Thursday Morning Stuff

Before the links, let me comment on a couple of things. First, the United States got another gold medal in the IAAF World Championships in Osaka, Japan when Tyson Gay made history with the rare 100-200 double today. He won the 200 Meters today in a time of 19.76 seconds and really it was no […]

Wednesday Morning Links

Middle of the week and time for some links for you. Lots of good stuff today. Let’s start with the Dennis & Callahan contract situation. Notice I’m no longer putting the lockout, holdout, whatever it is in the headline. Jessica Heslam of the Boston Herald writes in her Messenger blog that D & C did […]

Does this mean D & C are coming back or is this just a stunt?

If you saw it in the Boston Herald this morning, the ad by WEEI with the juxtaposed heads of Dennis & Callahan made you wonder if they’re indeed coming back or if this “lockout” is indeed a publicity stunt. I admit I’m growing more cynical by the day. Anyway, David Scott of Boston Sports Media […]

Friday Morning or Day 5 of the D & C Lockout

Day 5 of the WEEI/Dennis & Callahan lockout. It appears that there’s no end in sight to this. Over at Boston Sports Media Watch, David Scott says WEEI’s parent company, Entercom has trumped John Dennis & Gerry Callahan and their options are for the most part, limited except for a return to WEEI. Jessica Heslam […]

Entercom's Pre-emptive Strike and Other Links
