UPDATE: While Yorke is offering only a "no comment" in response to media inquiries, including one from me, DePetro sounded quite happy in a brief clip broadcast on WPRO. For those with an appreciation for irony, this lovefest will launch -- you guessed it -- on Valentine's Day, February 14.
Former WHJJ-AM talk-show host John DePetro has recently been seen at the Celona proceedings in US District Court, and now we know why. His hiring by WPRO-AM should be interesting, in part because of how there was little love lost between DePetro during his previous tenure in RI and his new colleague, Dan Yorke.
One had to assume another shoe was about to drop with yesterday's abrupt dismissal of Dave Barber. The RI talk-radio market remains in a period of flux, and Buddy Cianci has yet to return to town.
