Kirk Minihane Suspended For One Week Over Andrews Comments

Entercom and WEEI suspended morning co-host Kirk Minihane for a week, but only after pressure from FOX, which informed Entercom that it was pulling all sports and entertainment advertising off of the company’s airwaves. That includes ALL stations, not just WEEI. FOX talent will also not be appearing on any WEEI program. It was only after that move that Entercom suspended Minihane...

Fox strikes back at WEEI; pulls all advertising from station

The fallout from the WEEI/Erin Andrews controversy has now reached new heights. It began the day after the MLB All-Star Game when WEEI morning show co-host Kirk Minihane called Fox Sports’ Erin Andrews a “gutless ******** and then a week later, made an apology laced with a tirade about Andrews being a waitress she had been 15 pounds heavier. A day later, NESN announced it was...

NESN to drop simulcast of WEEI’s Dennis and Callahan

It hasn’t been a good week for the WEEI Morning Show known as Dennis and Callahan, hosted by two elderly Boston curmudgeons who have cultivated controversy over the years. We have chronicled the anti-Erin Andrews comments of D&C’s supposedly young and edgy cohort Kirk Minihane from last week and his subsequent “apology” or lack thereof this week. One of the reasons why...

Audio: Boston Radio Host “Apologizes” For Insulting Erin Andrews, Says She’d Be A Waitress If She Was 15 Pounds Heavier

The Boston radio host who called Fox Sports sideline reporter Erin Andrews a “gutless ******** and a “bimbo” apologized today…kind of. After his co-hosts went after “PC people” who were offended by his comments, Kirk Minihane, the guy who went after Andrews on The Dennis and Callahan Morning Show, gave one of the all-time worst apologies that you’ll hear. His full...

WEEI host digs deeper hole with terrible Erin Andrews “apology”

It was one week ago when WEEI radio host Kirk Minihane unleashed a vulgar rant in the direction of Erin Andrews.  Minihane called her a “gutless b*tch” which clearly crossed any line of decency, even for the widening cesspool that is sports talk radio.  The station issued a statement from Minihane apologizing for the comments, although there’s no evidence that Minihane was...

WEEI/NESN's Kirk Minihane apology to Erin Andrews: "15 pounds more, she'd be a waitress at Perkins....."

WEEI/NESN's Kirk Minihane apologized to Erin Andrews today for calling her a gutless *****.I used a word to reference Erin Andrews that I shouldn't have used to reference Erin Andrews. I will completely cop to that, I said it, I admit it. [...] I think she stinks at her job. I don't think she's very smart. I think Fox only hired her because she's good-looking...

WATCH: Radio host's awful tirade about Erin Andrews

I have a real problem with sports radio. There are plenty of exceptions to this feeling (SVP and Russillo) but — and particularly on a local level — the whole industry seems to just be a bunch of grown men whining about sports, drumming up fake controversies, spouting their proudly “politically incorrect” opinions and judging athletes almost entirely based on how many rings...

Erin Andrews replaces Pam Oliver in top NFL on FOX gig

Erin Andrews isn’t what she was in her Erin Pageviews heyday. She jumped the shark a couple years ago, but Erin Andrews in her current state is still a lot better than most media people at their primes. Hell, most media people don’t even have a prime. I myself am like a Tone Loc or Sisqo of sports journalism (two hit wonder) and I haven’t had a hit in over a year. EA still...

Erin Andrews Replacing Pam Oliver as FOX’s NFL Sideline Reporter

This isn’t surprising, Erin Andrews is FOX’s golden girl, so it was just a matter of time, before she was moved into the top spot and Oliver who has held that top spot for almost 20 years would be moved out. FOX just didn’t want to downgrade Oliver, they wanted to remove her completely from the coverage. She spoke to about the demotion and how she felt about hearing...
