Don't know.. I wondered the same thing myself.
I just checked the site, and it still says he is the host from 3-7

Looks like he has been doing a bunch of TV too.. Maybe that's it.

Maybe he is working on a political campaign for president.
Now THAT would be fun to see!

I'm wondering if he was offered another radio job. He's always said he loved being here and doing the show. I can't see him going back to the campaign trail....but then again, ya never know. Maybe he's just taking a sabatical? I dunno.

I like Sean tho, so at least I don't have to listen to Broudie.

Jay Severin Inks Syndie Deal with Infinity
Sep. 16, 2005
By Tony Sanders
Infinity Broadcasting has signed longtime political commentator and Boston radio host Jay Severin as a talk personality for “select” Infinity stations in the top 10 markets.
Severin has been the afternoon driver (3 p.m.-7 p.m.) on Greater Media's WTKK Boston since that station debuted its current talk format in September 1999. “Jay has always wanted to be syndicated, and we couldn’t be happier for him,” WTKK PD Paula O’Connor told Billboard Radio Monitor. "Now we’ll just have to work on convincing him that we want him to stay on FM Talk 96.9 as well.”
The Infinity release says that Severin will appear on some of that group’s stations in the top 10 markets. That leaves room for Severin to potentially remain on WTKK, since Boston is ranked market number 11 in the Spring 2005 Arbitrons. (WTKK is also the home for other Infinity/Westwood programming, notably “Imus in the Morning.”)
O’Connor confirmed to Monitor that Severin’s contract with Greater Media expires at the end of 2005.
Before joining WTKK, Severin hosted late nights on Entercom talk WRKO in the market.

Well...that explains a lot, but...if his contract doesn't expire until the end of the year, then how come he isn't on?

Thanks for finding that NO1.

There was also talk that TKK may be dumping Imus next spring too. Heard they were doing a "major revamping". They should dump Barnicle. I get tired lestening to his moaning and groaning.

I wouldn't miss either of them...at all. Mike isn't the only one that moans. [roll]

Imus' ratings have been declining for a while now. No wonder, he's become a mere extension of MSNBC programming and a shill for NBC news. He has every panty wearing liberal in the major media on day after day. He's not even funny anymore. Contessa Brewer was right when she called him an old fool.

Listening to Barnicle is like two more hours of Imus, without the impersonations. He never lets the fact get in the way of his liberal whining.

Once Severin signed a contract with Infinity, he probably had to leave TKK. There's probably some sort of non compete clause in his contract.

Well, there's always Hanks Place on XM! <G>

From the WTKK website,

Scheduling Update

Where’s Jay? Jay Severin signed a syndication deal with a competing company as reported in the newspapers. We are in ongoing negotiations with Jay and hope to reach a decision soon. Until a decision is reached, Jay will remain off the air.

I hope he sticks around hear. Shawn is ok but Jay is way better.
Agreed. I like Sean, but Jay has that "touch" of mixing "sex, drugs, and rock and roll" with intellect and humor. From what I understand tho, he's not around here - he broadcasts from his home in Sag Harbor, NY. Nice bennie.
