A Digital Ordway Returns To Boston Sports Talk

You may have loved him or hated him, but when Glenn Ordway ruled over Boston Sports Radio on WEEI, you couldn't ignore him. After hosting the afternoon drive "Big Show" for seventeen years, 'The Big O' was summarily canned by Entercom (WEEI's corporate owners) about a year ago. Now, he's about to dive back into Boston sports radio with a digitally-based live-streaming drive time show via Starting on March 17th, the 3-6 PM show (titled "Big Show Unfiltered') will also be available via a mobile smart phone app and TuneIn. The show will feature a refreshed version of the iconic "Whiner Line" and also bring back some of the yakkers that populated his show over the years. Given the moribund state of sports radio these day, Ordway's return will be more than welcome.
