Kravitz to Emmis

Dateline: Tue 04 Dec 2007

The word is leaking out that the Star's highly-paid sports columnist Bob Kravitz will be the host of WIBC-AM's afternoon sports talk show.

The new radio format will debut in January.

Kravitz, as everyone knows, is hands-down the best-read columnist at the Star. This is a coup for Emmis, which is facing its own internal problems as detailed in John Ketzenberger's biz column today. (Go back to private? Split the company up? etc)

More to come on this. Will Kravitz leave the Star? Everything is negotiable. Kravitz earns more than $100,000 as a Gannett columnist. Can Emmis better deal that?
