The new program is “Political Week in Review,” and it will be heard Fridays, beginning 10/1/10, all the way through to the post-election Friday of 11/5/10 on WRKO-AM 680 in Boston. The host is FOX25 WFXT political reporter Joe Battenfeld. Station owner Entercom is committing three hours to the program, which will run from 7PM-10PM.
The program will take on both local and national issues, and will feature interviews with both newsmakers and the journalists who cover them.
Entercom New England VP Programming Jason Wolfe said, “Joe is one of the best political reporters in the city and he does an outstanding job on FOX25. He’s been an excellent guest with Finneran and Feinburg for the past several months and I know he’ll provide our audience with unique insights and the most up to date information on a weekly basis, about the upcoming elections.”
Wolfe added, “WRKO is committed to providing our listeners with the most comprehensive and credible information regarding the November elections, and this new weekly show with Joe will do just that.”
WFXT is a Fox Television O&O.
