WEEI-AM Begins Website Beef-Up With Hiring Of Two Herald Writers
Published July 14, 2008
END AND A BEGINNING? BOSTON SPORTS MEDIA WATCH’s David Scott wrote Felger leaving ESPN Radio 890 "could very well be a death knell for the struggling all-sports talk radio also-ran in the Boston market." ESPN 890 cannot "spin this thing as a positive step forward for the station. Felger is a marquee name in the market." Scott noted Felger's WEEI radio and WEEI.com duties "mean that Felger's near-20-year run with the Boston Herald is over." Upon coming to WEEI.com, "it is believed Felger ... will bring a version of his Patriots Report Card" from the Herald (BOSTONSPORTSMEDIA.com, 7/11). In a separate piece, Scott wrote WEEI.com is expected to "snag other local talents from established media organizations to join the dot-com line-up." Murphy hopes that the result will be a "combination of straight news delivery blended with opinion (blogs) and other, logical extensions of 'EEI's terrestrial audio content (and personalities)." Murphy: "The idea is to distribute our audio content more aggressively" (BOSTONSPORTSMEDIA.com, 7/10).
