Hubbub Q&A

Q&A: Mike Salk, Co-Host of WEEI’s Afternoon Sports Radio Show “Salk and Holley”

Sports talk station WEEI was once Boston’s top-rated radio station of any kind. But since falling behind the upstart 98.5 The Sports Hub in 2011, WEEI has been trying to shake things up, most prominently with its afternoon drive-time show. In February, the station let go of its longtime star Glenn Ordway, replacing him with Mike Salk—a Sudbury native who’d been working in Seattle and is now paired with Ordway’s former cohost, Michael Holley.

Q&A: Olympic Marathon Runner Shalane Flanagan

The daughter of two marathoners, Shalane Flanagan was a star runner at Marblehead High School before she went on to set American records in the 3,000-, 5,000-, and 10,000-meter distances and win a bronze in the 10,000 at the 2008 Olympics. In 2010, she made the switch to marathons, finishing second in her first New York race and 10th last year in the Olympics. This month, Flanagan returns home to run her first Boston Marathon.

Q&A: NESN Red Sox Reporter Jenny Dell

From Hazel Mae to Tina Cervasio to Heidi Watney, nobody in the Boston media receives quite the same scrutiny as NESN’s Red Sox sideline reporter. And when Jenny Dell took over the job last year, it came with even greater challenges than usual: namely, a crummy team and a cranky manager. But that's all behind us now, and with spring training in full swing, Dell is back on the job for what everyone hopes is a very different season number two.
