Entercom’s WRKO-AM Boston exercised the option on Howie Carr’s contract, keeping the longtime radio host on there for the foreseeable future. Carr, who anchors weekdays 3pm to 7pm, has been with WRKO since 1994.
“Howie Carr is a Boston radio legend and I’m looking forward to having him continue to anchor afternoon drive. This is a great day for our listeners, affiliates and advertisers, and I’m excited that we’ve extended our relationship,” said Jason Wolfe, Vice President of Programming for Entercom Boston.
“Howie Carr has been a lynchpin for WRKO for years and we are thrilled he will continue to be part of the best talk radio in Boston,” added Jeff Brown, Vice President and General Manager/Entercom Boston.
