  1. If WEEI and the Portly O are nominated for all these awards, there must only be a small segment of radio stations eligible to receive them.

  2. I think the catagory they compete in is: “SPORTS RADIO STATIONS IN THE GREATER BOSTON AREA WITH A STRONG SIGNAL”

  3. I’ve lived in other parts of the country and sadly, WEEI is better than all of them. Of course, that’s like saying dying from drowning is better than burning to death.

    1. Viva WEEI. They have more male listeners than their next two or three competitors combined. They have won numerous Marconi Awards, beating sports and non-sports stations across the country along the way. Local AM sports competition has been vanquished over and over again and despite the bravado in the blogosphere nobody has had their act together or seen fit to challenge them with an FM station.

      It would appear that the vocal, critical cadre of EEI haters that show up on these boards represent neither radio listeners nor the advertising industry in general. Furthermore, the continued maligning of a management team that has created this golden goose just smacks of jealousy and resentment. Try and play it off as a result of the Sox, Pats, etc., but the bottom line, as Parcells said is, “you are what you are” and these guys are winners. Congratulations WEEI.
