Ok in the scheme of all things political this is a minor story but one that brings me great satisfaction. I enjoy sports talk radio, I share Red Sox pseason tickets with a pair of friends but the morning drive time sports talk show hosted by Dennis and Callahan has been a source of great irritation for me. Wanting sports new and good back and forth on last nights game, what you usually get from these two is right wing politics with a couple of scores thrown in. Their smug references attacking any progressive elected offical and ridiculing any idea that didn’t generate from the Tea Party types seemed to play to a base audience and they had the ratings to sustain this nonsense. Until now:
WEEI fell into a tie for seventh place with WBUR with a 4.9 share among the men 25-54 demographic.
In morning drive (6 a.m.-10 a.m), The Sports Hub’s “Toucher and Rich” program was first with a 9.1. WEEI’s Dennis and Callahan was sixth with a 5.7.
It’s a small thing but it made my day. Seeing these clowns canceled for poor ratings will be icing on a November 6th victory cake.
