And that hashtag is trending now, as I mentioned in the Big O thread. It seems to be all Kirk and Callahan fans still pissed that their favorite knuckle-draggers got ousted and are pointing to the station's worst daily ratings in years as proof that the station chose the wrong side.

They don’t have a bench
they haven't brought in quality talent for weekends and fill ins who know Boston sports and can carry 20 hours of programming a week.
do those people exist? Do they want these jobs?
And it's a continuous cycle. As WEEI loses advertising money the execs will hold onto retreads taking a pay cut who are desperate to hold onto their job at one of the two sports talk networks, instead of promoting and increasing pay for a lesser known to add some energy to their lineup. And the budget for hiring bench/weekend help will continue to be next to nil and the "talent" will reflect this. Then those that do display talent will depart for where they are better paid and appreciated i.e. Arcand. Rinse and repeat.

So that is why the other guy(Brian Barrett) was on with Rob Bradford on Sunday? I enjoy Bradford when he talks baseball.
Besides weekend fill-ins Marc had a weekday show from 10pm-midnight that has been replaced with 'best of' segments from the day shows.

Looks like the Spring ratings just came out per Minihane (only source I see so far). WEEI got destroyed.

This morning Greg Hill and Curtis insisted that they were #1 in Boston with adult males. They went on with this premise for quite awhile, addressing texters who brought up getting destroyed.
Are they just flat out knowingly lying? Or are they pulling a 'funny math' type argument?
@Chad Finn could use your help here...

Did you see all the texts on the facebook link? He was suspended for two days and very lucky in my opinion to still have been employed at the time.

If you have a link otherwise, feel free to post it.

I recall it "blowing over" with some comments about it not being that serious, but I never saw the texts. I was surprised he was been reinstated so quickly as this was certainly in an era that inappropriate contacts finally weren't being tolerated

This morning Greg Hill announced he was doing the show remotely as he possibly could have been in contact with someone w/ Covid-19 and HR ordered him to stay home.

Then this evening he posts a picture from a bar on Nantucket.

What. A. Dick.

How does Tomase stay employed in any capacity in New England? Hopefully Abby Chin being let go is temporary and she'll be back when the NBA is back to normal.

Tomase must have compromising photos of everyone in New England except for Matt Walsh.

This is happening at NBC Bay Area, too, so it must be a company-wide bloodletting.

The number of people tweeting what a good guy Tanguay is helps explain how he stays employed. Tomase I'll never understand.

Yeah Abby will be missed. I suspect she won't remain unemployed for long. She is excellent at what she does beyond the "announcer looks good while reading the tape" basics. She has worked incredibly hard to cultivate relationships within the Celtics organization and she often has color that isn't available elsewhere. Ultimately, Celtics fans are the biggest losers of this move.

Abby is awesome, sucks to see her go. Tomase brings nothing to the table, I get dumber every time he opens his mouth. Must have been an empty suit in NBC corporate that made these decisions.
