Also, former ESPN Boston 890 Program Director Doug Tribou checked in after he was let go by the station this week.

"Overseeing the WAMG/WLLH format change from Latin music to ESPN Radio was an excellent programming opportunity. Having joined the team two months prior the launch in July, I'm very pleased to be able to say the station is already outpacing the early ratings expectations the ownership had laid out for us. There are a lot of great people involved with the project and there's more room for growth. I wish 890 ESPN Boston the best of luck."

Tribou is planning on remaining in Boston and looking for radio opportunities in the local area.
