Hark! The Herald! (Internet Radio Edition)

From our Walt Whitman desk

Say, that’s some big news about the feisty local tabloid launching Boston Herald Radio, yeah?

All the details were, well, detailed in the Herald Radio Countdown that ran in Monday’s edition:

The Herald is poised to take a dramatic step toward a richer experience for its online audience as it launches a new Internet radio station.

The countdown has begun for 6 a.m. next Monday, Aug. 5, when Boston Herald Radio goes live.

Veteran talk show host Jeff Katz will launch a morning drive news talk show that will lead into 12 hours of live broadcasting each weekday.

There will be four shows in all, including “Live from the Newsroom with Jeff Katz,” “Morning Meeting with Jaclyn Cashman and Hillary Chabot,” “The Michael Graham Show” and “Sports Town with Jon 
Meterparel and Jen Royle.”

In other words, the usual Herald suspects.

But let’s focus on the big picture . . .

    For M-I-C-H-A-E-L Graham, this may be a last-ditch attempt to achieve some remote kind of “relevance” in Boston. During June and July, a station near where I live operating at 1110 khz signs off well before sunset, and I can pick up the station at 1120 in Concord, MA that runs a repeat of his noon-til-3:00 pm show on a network of stations with few listeners if any. He yaks and yaks, constantly giving out the number to call, but with a minimum of takers. Now if the Herald’s online “radio” station functions at all, he may get callers from computer users rather than radio listeners.
