02:46 pm - Signs...
On the same day I hear the announcement that the Red Sox are switching radio affiliates, I find out what radio station plays the Lowell Spinners games.
Coincidence? I think not.

I always liked WEEI. I don't understand the move though. WRKO and WEEI are sister stations, and WRKO is news talk. It doesn't make any sense to me.

They want to air Red Sox radio on a network they have control over and this agreement gives them options to buy into the radio station. I don't know why RKO provides that option, but EEI doesn't when, as you point out, they're owned by the same company.
I'm completely baffled by the whole thing, really.

The St. Louis Cardinals just switched from the 50,000 watt station that it was on (KMOX) to KTRS, which broadcasts at 5,000 watts during the day and 1,000 at night. While in public they said it was because they couldn't reach favorable terms with KMOX, it was later reported that pressure from regional pay sports networks played into the mix and they didn't want a high-powered station (they'd rather customers pay for the sports network). It's a shame, KMOX played the Cards for years and years...

I think that WRKO has wider coverage/stronger signal than WEEI. I think that is part of the reason for the switch.

This is much less of a giant step than what they were thinking of which was buying WBOS and going to FM.
