Questionable business moves hurting onetime sports radio powerhouse WEEI
Once a Boston radio powerhouse that had the local sports market to itself, WEEI already has lost many listeners like Mavrikos to 98.5 The Sports Hub, a CBS-owned rival that was launched in 2009. Though the station takes in much more money than its new competitor, revenues at WEEI are down nearly 20 percent since the Sports Hub began broadcasting, according to industry figures, and it remains saddled with an expensive contract to broadcast the Boston Red Sox
Turnover has been high — it fired some of its biggest names, while others have quit. Longtime program director Jason Wolfe, who led the station during its most successful years, received his pink slip two weeks ago.
