Bill Forry reports the City of Boston Credit Union announced today it's pulling its ads off WEEI:

A series of recent incidents have made it clear that the culture of the station is not reflective of our values of inclusion, acceptance and mutual respect.

Such as this.

WEEI's Kirk Minihane says they're all out to get him because of their agendas, not just because he said something really stupid about Erin Andrews. Minihane explains what he says is the Globe's agenda (they have four writers who get paid to appear on 'EEI's archenemy station); doesn't really lay out the Herald's or Olbermann's agendas, except to say they have them. Oh, yeah, and Deadspin is run by a bunch of hypocritical clickwhores.

Go figure: John Dennis is not only still a racist, he doesn't see the hypocrisy of somebody who's had his weight problems criticizing somebody else's weight.

Via Bruce Allen, who notes the misogyny of that Minihane guy who's also on the show.

Nobody wants to say, but whatever it was, it was enough to get the company to pull all its ads off WEEI.

A couple of Staties visited David Portnoy of Barstool Sports and suggested it might be best for all concerned if he took down the nekkid photos of the Brady kid, if you know what they mean, and they think you do, so he did. At least, for today.

The Weekly Dig, which, granted, isn't the most disinterested observer in such things, reports (third item) the hot rumor in local radio circles is that Entercom wants to throw some money at the Phoenix to buy 'FNX and replace it with that milquetoast Mike format from 93.7 so it can move faltering WEEI onto FM and try to smack the Sports Hub around.

The Herald reports dude got himself suspended for sending "vulgar" texts to rival WBZ-FM, a.k.a., the Sports Hub. Props to columnist Jessica Heslam for this:

Massaua never responded to repeated text messages seeking a comment.

On the Boston Radio mailing list, Roger Kirk reports he fiddled between the Sports Hub and 'EEI on the way home last night to compare the two:

98.5's DA was discussing the Topic Du Jour i.e. Teddy Bruschi's retirement with callers.

The Sox had the night off, so WEEI's host was engaged in animated conversation with a caller comparing the breast size of Serena Williams to other Tennis Players.

David Scott dons his Kevlar and reports from the uneasy truce line between the Globe and WEEI, following yesterday's incursion by Globie Chadd Finn:

... If there's going to be a sports media war in this town, it certainly isn't going to include the Boston Herald or any other of our local pretender sites. ... As for a WEEI/Globe escalation of activity, I say, "Bring it on." Something has to shake up the status quo in this town and if Chad Finn's WEEI Manifesto is it, then let 'er rip. ...

As long as he's on the topic of the Globe, Scott wonders when "Curt Schilling's BFF" will just start publishing "Best of ..." columns instead of pretending he's offering new insights in his columns.
