Reports are that Ordway is out at WEEI with Mike Salk replacing him. Say what you want about the guy (esp the past decade or so) but he was a staple of Boston radio since the late 70s. 

This comes on the heels of Morning show flash guy Kevin Winter getting let go on Monday. 

How the once mighty has fallen.  WEEI used to be the top dog but its clear they are chasing Sports Hub at this point.

Personally, I think both stations are pretty horrific these days.
I have sports talk radio on my alarm, because it gives me enough aggravation to get out of bed.

Too bad that WAAF has the ridiculous Greg Hill in the morning, so I can' even get decent music on the way to work. Time to invest in some CDs.

WEEI isn't bad.  I prefer it to the sports hub, but WBUR is my top choice for radio

Felger and Mazz is hands down the best show on sports radio in boston right now.

Which is pretty sad.  Felger sucks, and Mazz is just a lap dog.

Boston sports radio is terrible right now.

Can't stand Felger & his talking parrot. 

Boston sports radio is in pretty awful shape these days.

Welp, it's been confirmed.

I've had the chance to work quite a bit with Glenn, he's a genuinely nice guy, always funny and friendly.  I think he's a pretty talented radio host as well.  Kinda stinks that this news got leaked before he had a chance to announce it himself.

The show is pretty great today...

Imagine if he ended up on 98.5?

This stinks. I'm officially a displaced sports radio fan. I need Sirius.

Holley made Big O better because O couldn't bully him and Holley knew his stuff better. But 98.5 is way better. Felger is way better. I am soooooo happy O got bombed. Had it coming.

Yeah I can't stand the 2 of them.  I'd rather listen to almost any show than that one.

Michael Holley is a very good host, I've enjoyed him for a while now.

I agree that Holley made Ordway much more likable and easier to listen to.  But I don't see how anyone can listen to Felger at all.

I love Felger.  I think he is the best on the radio these days.  It's nice to have an on air personality who challenges the audience, but then will actually have a relatively respectful give and take.

Most of the talking heads just yell over the callers and/or sound like shills for the team.  Felger takes ridiculous stances some times, but he does it to stimulate discussion, not to yell it at everyone until they are drowned out.

Felger's ridiculous opinions are just too much for me.  He is completely off the reservation 75% of the time (and that is being generous).  He just isn't a likeable personality.
