Globe, 'EEI kiss and make up

The Globe's ban on sportswriters appearing on WEEI-AM is no more. Here's the 'EEI email sent this morning:

WEEI announced today that the station and The Boston Globe have agreed that Globe sports writers will appear as guests on all WEEI talk shows, effective immediately.

“I think this is a great win for WEEI and the Globe,” said VP of Programming Jason Wolfe. “The Globe’s sports department has a deep tradition of exceptional coverage of the Boston sports scene and it is my pleasure to welcome them back to our airwaves. I know our listeners will appreciate their insight and expertise.”


And here, courtesy of Dan Kennedy's rich Phoenix oeuvre, is a thorough explanation of the ban's origins--and a look at some of the problems it posed.
