Phantom Gourmet Radio Show Is Leaving WTKK; Future Uncertain

Based on information from The Boston Globe and hosts on the station saying goodbye (including Joe Ligotti today), it appears that The Phantom Gourmet's radio show on WTKK (News Talk 96.9 FM) may be gone after today, as the station is apparently going to switch over to a music format sometime next week. A message sent to The Phantom Gourmet has not been returned, and today's show, which is on from 4:00 PM to 7:00 PM, is a "best of" repeat. The Phantom Gourmet radio show, which started out on WTKK about five years ago, has had slots on the station on Fridays from 10:00 AM to 1:00 PM and Saturdays from 4:00 PM to 7:00 PM.

Currently, it is not known what radio station The Phantom Gourmet's show might go if it does leave WTKK, so keep checking back for updates.

Thanks to the Boston Hospitality and Tourism Industry blog (with info coming from a Boston Herald article) for bringing this to our attention.
