WTKK to air NECN content in the early morning drive
New England Cable News and WTKK 96.9 have reached an agreement that involves simulcasting regional news network's programming on the radio station from 4:30am to 6am every weekday starting next Monday(4/18).
The agreement helps Newton-based, Comcast-owned NECN build its reach beyond TV through while providing additional news content for WTKK which will carry NECN's "First Thing in the Morning" and "NECN Morning" leading into the 6am start of WTKK's "Jim and Margery Show," featuring Jim Braude and Margery Eagan. NECN's morning news is anchored by Kristy Lee and Erick Weber, and features Meteorologist Danielle Niles.
In other WTKK news, the station has made a change in its overnight programming - replacing nationally syndicated veteran Phil Hendrie with a brand news syndicated show hosted by David Stein, formerly with Sporting News Radio(2006-2011). Stein's show will air from 1am to 4:30am.
