Mondays have become WEEI day on the Boston Sports Media Approval Ratings.
Today we’re rating weekend host Larry Johnson.
LJ co-hosts the “Mustard and Johnson” weekend show for the station, known for talking about the Yankees incessantly and featuring a lineup of New York Yankee fan callers. Johnson is also a regular co-host on The Big Show during the week.
A cartoonist by trade, Johnson worked for the Boston Globe for many years, and now creates cartoons for WEEI.com and The Remy Report website. He was also a regular cartoon contributor to ESPN.com’s Page 2 “Daily Quickie.”
WEEI frequently pokes fun at LJ in Pete Gustin’s skits, including portraying LJ at “The Tracer” a moniker that seems apt as shown by Larry Johnson vs Google Image Search. They also enjoy replaying his voicemail messages to station chief Jason Wolfe. Johnson frequently touts his Christian faith on the air, and has objected to some of the bits played on the station.
