The Michael Graham Watch Continues

OMW’s only been interested in this because Michael Graham, the former WMAL/Washington talk show host, had been mentioned in connection with the afternoon drive opening at Clear Channel Toledo talker WSPD/1370. Since these rumors started swirling around, the station hired veteran host Brian Wilson as program director and afternoon drive host…and we hinted about Michael Graham’s future moves in the process.

Back in Graham’s old home market, DCRTV gets into the act this afternoon, with speculation that Graham has “a good shot” at landing on FM talker WTKK/96.9 Boston. (That’s the “Northeast corridor major market” situation we’ve hinted about.) The station could potentially have a huge opening – afternoon drive – as it continues to figure out what to do with local host Jay Severin. Severin recently signed a syndication deal with Infinity to air on a number of its big-market talk stations. If Severin does not return to the WTKK airwaves, or returns in a different time slot via his new national program, Graham appears likely to take the opening. A lot of this depends on if Severin’s show lands at Infinity news/talk WBZ/1030 instead of WTKK. Graham will be filling in on WTKK all week.

Again, not really much related to OMW’s territory here, but we felt the need to update it. We feel pretty safe to say that Graham won’t turn up on the air in Ohio any time soon.
