Ordway to be replaced by WEEI

According to the Boston Globe, Glenn Ordway will be replaced on WEEI's afternoon drive program by Mike Salk, a Boston local who has co-hosted his own radio show on 710 ESPN in Seattle since 2009.

Ordway explained on Wednesday's "Ordway and Holley" show that he will be leaving the show.

Ordway has been at WEEI since 1987 and in 2009 signed a five-year contract that was reportedly worth 1 million per year.

The Sports Hub's "Felger and Massarotti" show -- which is televised on Comcast SportsNet -- has recently placed ahead of "Ordway and Holley" in younger Arbitron demographics.

Ordway is the co-host of Comcast SportsNet's New England Tailgate program with Steve DeOssie and Fred Smerlas.
