Love him or hate him, you can’t ignore WBEN-AM talk show host Tom Bauerle.
Bauerle, who flirted with trying to go national, reports he just signed a new long-term contract that allows his weekday afternoon program to end at 6 p.m., rather than 7 p.m. He expects co-host David Bellavia will sign a new deal next month as well.
Greg Ried, who runs the Entercom stations, declined to confirm Bauerle’s new deal, saying he doesn’t discuss contracts.
It is unclear what will air on WBEN from 6 to 7 p.m. but local news is a good bet.
