The WEEI Jimmy Fund Fundraiser Made $1 Million Less Than Last Year Because Bob Murchison And Shirley Leung Don’t Mind Hurting Kids With Cancer If It Means They Can Censor Opinions They Don’t Like

One of the things Kirk and Callahan were the best at at WEEI was raising money for the Jimmy Fund. The sports talk radio station dedicates two days a year to stop talking sports or whatever else is in the news in order to interview kids with cancer and get people to open up their checkbooks for this great foundation. Last year they raised $4.4 million.

But that’s when Kirk and Callahan were bringing a large audience to WEEI every morning because their show was so successful and entertaining. Then this guy showed up.

Bob Murchison, the millionaire activist from Sherborn who made his fortune by preying on dumb people during the housing crisis. Bob decided that he didn’t like the topics of discussion on a radio station he chose to listen to, and instead of just changing the channel he elected to begin a non-stop harassment campaign of WEEI’s advertisers until Entercom made the worst business decision ever and fired both Kirk and Callahan. Now Greg Hill is on that time slot, ratings have hit an all time low, and less people tuned in for this year’s Jimmy Fund. How much did they raise?

$3.4 million. By my calculations that’s about $1 million short of last year, all of which would’ve gone directly towards research to find a cure, and support for kids who are fighting for their lives. That’s the end result of this pathetic sack of human waste pile’s campaign for censorship.

For the record, I got all the information on Bob from cowardly Joe Zarbano, the program director at WEEI. He wanted to make it seem like I didn’t get this information and the emails Bob sent from him, so we talked on the phone and agreed that he would send me a message on Twitter, pleading with me not to publish Bob’s name, and then I’d publish it anyway.

Pathetic.

Of course he couldn’t do it alone without his ally at the Boston Globe.

Shirley Leung used her position at the Globe to not only demand that WEEI fire Kirk and Callahan, but then praised them when they decided to take Minihane off the air last November. She turned the Globe into a weapon she used to financially destroy the sports talk radio station by publicly shaming WEEI’s advertisers, and then called them up to harass them while coordinating with Bob Murchison.

I can’t even tell you how furious this makes me. Nothing tugs on the heartstrings more than kids with cancer. It’s so fucking cruel that any child would ever be forced to fight a battle like that when they should be enjoying their childhood. But they do, and more and more kids are winning that fight thanks to the Jimmy Fund. WEEI was a great instrument used to help these kids.

 

Kirk lost both his parents to cancer in a very short window as well.

Their ability to raise this much money was a direct result of the popularity of their show. Without listeners it’s hard to get donors. But because these two vile, disgusting, vapid pieces of donkey dick decided that they wanted a radio station to conform to their political talking points, the Jimmy Fund lost out on $1 million.

Rot in Hell Shirley and Bob.

    I hate to agree with the pretense of a relatively anger/frustration-based article, but it’s dead on. Hey WEEI….that dropped listener after the NEW morning show was brought in? It’s me, in spades, times thousands….. Can’t listen to man/woman ha-ha-ha all-sports-talk about little or nothing…it’s no way to run what used to be a great outlet that WAS relevant.

    There is more money in the economy than in years past, and the Jimmy comes up 25% short of last year? Murchison may as well tattoo “Trump 2020” on his forehead. HE’S the reason true free-speech people will put ANYBODY in the White House except a Dem…ANYONE! Have y’all noticed that yet? Honest to goodness….while he could have turned the dial to hear somebody he does like instead of power-tantruming, now I am doing so.

    WEEI, if you stand up for nothing, you’ll go down for anything. Of course, Bob’s ilk would not be caught dead listening to sports radio, anyway…(SO gauche…). So, what was your gain? You made a few assholes smile before they resume another self-hate tantrum and go on to scorch the earth of some other entity and ruin something else?

    If it wasn’t for the fact the afternoon show includes another of WEEI’s GREAT strategic-management-fired persons, now returned, I’d not listen to you at all barring Sox games…. Is Murchison allowing WEEI to do the Celtics this year? I was SO happy to switch y’all off last night to hear the Pats, because the ass-corporation that’s kissing Murchison’s really has nothing to offer me outside of coevrage. In fact, tell your advertisers that just for spite, and because they are all pussies, too, I’m pulling a ‘Murch’ and turning off the station whenever commercial spots come up. So now I don’t listen to the morning show, no commercials, and just to continue to play the same game ‘Murch’ plays, this year I’ll donate to something else aside from the Jimmy Fund… Let’s scorch that earth, too, Bob…. Let’s screw people because with your Hitler “free expression is the enemy” type censorship.

    Take some advice….the social group you’re trying to impress won’t be there to save you when you need it, Stooge.

    Enough with these “non profits “ that pay their CEO’s millions of dollars. They always say that your money is going for research like one breast cancer non profit when it went to give free mammograms. Who needs free mammograms? If you’re “poor” Medicaid pays fir them. If you’re not pay for them yourself.

    TB, you’re being naive. First the CEO of the Jimmy Fund makes over $1M a year. Does the Jimmy Fund guarantee that the donations through this fund drive go to research?

    Murchison is an asshole and so is Leung, but the only ones to blame are the management at WEEI and the talent.

    Wyc Grousbeck is an asshole too. Now we have the Obamas because of his greed. Fuck the Celtics

    THE JIMMY FUND IS A SCAM.

    “Early this year Dana-Farber Cancer Institute launched a $1 billion fundraising campaign, according to the charity, the largest in its history. Yet this charity, which includes the Jimmy Fund, has not presented its audited financial statements in a form that would allow AIP to issue it a rating. According to Mary Rebecca Mix, Dana-Farber’s Manager of Regulatory Affairs, it has no plans to do so.”

    I don’t listen to WEEI anymore so I had no idea they were doing the marathon. I know they do it in August but because I listen, it wasn’t on my radar. I learned it was on when I tried to put the NESN simulcast of Felger and Mazz on. Hey Bob, step up and do the right thing and cut a check for 1 million dollars for the Jimmy Fund.

    I was planning on pivoting the Minihane takedown to run for office at some point. That was my intention. Ive become so drunk from my financial standing that I found myself to be important. This self importance is what drove me to become an activist. I tried to read how people feel and what they connect with. But I only have exposure to others through liberal news stations, so I miscalculated. People in the know hate me now.

    Great article. When is your expose on the MSP’s latest federally indicted trooper coming out? Allegedly there’s lots of dirt to uncover so don’t ignore it just because he may have been your major source in the past. If you’re a true journalist, do what’s right and dig into it even if you had a working relationship that helped launch you far beyond Worcester.

    Do they give a breakdown of corporate doners?
    It would be interesting to see if any companies decided not to join the woke train and be used
    by WEEI.

    They may still give, but as M said, skip the middle man if the cause is important to you. WEEI gets the praise off of your donations. “AREN’T WE FINE PEOPLE!!!!???” No, Dale Arnold, you are a thin skinned dick. WEEI fucked you over once, but they brought you back and you have a 55 gallon drum for the ass licking you do.

    I don’t think for one second that Bob’s tranny freak of a daughter Caroline doesn’t have a huge part in this as well and implore you to bring her into the crosshairs of your blog as well.

    Fuck all you fucktard tranny freaks and also all of you who support them in even the slightest way, including telling them they look good and spending Christmas Eve with them because you have no balls and want to appear to be PC.

    I was wondering if there would be an impact on the total raised this year. Glad you guys posted this. Morning drive is brutal now. It’s so bad I find myself toggling back and forth from 93.7 to 98.5 (both suck) and to NPR. I’m going back to listening to music now.

      98.5 is only listenable from 2-6. If they have marshall hook or matt mccarthy then its off to howie carr or endure the brutal repetition of worn out “classic” rock songs from 2-3. I tune into the Koooooner man from 6-10, and the financial exchange from 10-12. 12-2 is potluck of shit most days. Sometimes i listen to jim and mush mouth for the entertainment value but i can only deal with jim’s cock hungry voice for so long. When its all said and done, weei is simply not an option with their current lineup.

    • Dave and chuck the freak. 92.9. Give them three days and you’ll forget about morning eei.

        I’ve been listening to them since I heart took over and ruined zlx. Anything that was good and loved got ended then they changed the music so it’s all Elton John and billy fuckin Joel. Note to radio execs. If it ain’t broke don’t fix it. Assholes.
