Former WTKK hosts Braude and Eagan book fill-in gig on WGBH
Two days after they hosted the final talk show broadcast on WTKK-FM, Jim Braude and Margery Eagan have lined up a one-day gig on WGBH-FM that could double as an audition.
WGBH said Friday that the former WTKK morning show hosts will guest host “Boston Public Radio” Jan. 8, filling in for Callie Crossley, Emily Rooney and Kara Miller.
Braude and Eagan hosted the last episode of “Jim & Margery” Wednesday before the station switched to an all-music format.
The pair has no other assignments booked on WGBH, but the station’s managing director, Phil Redo, suggested in an e-mail that there could be more to come.
“I’m a big fan of theirs,” said Redo, who managed WTKK and four other Greater Media Inc. stations in Boston from 2006 to 2009. “I certainly would love it if we could figure out a way to have them contribute to what we are building here at WGBH Radio, but at this point we are just talking.”
Redo told the Globe this week that he was disappointed by the end of talk radio on WTKK.Callum Borchers can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org. Follow him on Twitter @callumborchers.
