We already know that Entercom (NYSE:ETM) is notoriously dysfunctional, placing managerial ego ahead of ratings and profit, to the point where looking frankly silly in public is disregarded.
But with Howie Carr mysteriously under suspension (for doing absolutely nothing wrong that we can tell) while Tom “Jumping Whale” Finneran remains on the air, the latest situation clearly tops them all.
True to form, the company is up to its usual tricks: employing PR flakmeister George Regan (doesn’t he host a show on a competing station?) to deflect unpleasant media questions, keeping the Herald at bay while The (senile) Globies ignore the matter altogether.
Yesterday, “former co-host” Wendy Murphy was brought in to defend The Felon for reasons that seem transparently self-serving. Looking to return to WRKO, Wendy?
But today, onetime Green / Rainbow gubernatorial candidate Grace Ross (once the target of a now-former WRKO host’s weight-related dig) is speaking out and isn’t backing the station.
The bottom line:
1) the ball is in Nancy “Sandy” Shack’s (Howie’s producer who was the object of Finneran’s pathetic personal dig) court. She can’t expect the company to help her, only a legal team can get the attention of Entercom, otherwise, they will laugh this off.
2) A decent gentleman wouldn’t wait to be compelled by the company to apologize, he would do so on his own. Only a moron treats women that way. Thanks, Felon, for making your true nature clear for all to see.
