Imus Returns To Boston!


It was announced this afternoon that 96.9 WTKK in Boston will be carrying the Imus in the Morning program, starting December 3rd. This is the first big affiliate that Imus has gained. It's also exciting because the Imus program and WTKK have a long history together. WTKK has carried the Imus program for years, and Imus in the Morning often invited WTKK personalities to be guests on its program. Also, the Imus crew was known for trekking up to Boston every St. Patrick's Day to do a live remote with WTKK.

I now present to you an aircheck for the ages. This afternoon, Jay Severin made the big announcement during his own program on WTKK. Severin, as you know, was a frequent guest on the Imus show.

As you listen, try to realize what this might feel like for him to make the announcement. He was a fan of the show, a friend of the show, and a coworker. And now, suddenly, that "was" has been changed to "is." How likely, I wonder, did today's turn of events seem back in April?

The giddiness in his voice, combined with the gravity of his announcement, is unforgettable.

Thanks College Girl, I loved listening to that! It's so nice to hear someone saying on the public airwaves what the rest of us have been feeling since April

Well, I certainly hope that the WABC website and streaming audio will be able to handle all the traffic on December 3rd...

because there's a whole lot of Americans out here whose only access to 'Imus in the Morning' will be the WABC streaming online audio...

Imusfan and Laree, that Jay Severin recording is my favorite thing ever. He does indeed "get it." Is it sad that I've downloaded that to my Itunes? :-)

Al, I'm hoping that WABC gets their website into shape. I'm sure they will.
