Some of the WTKK personalities who lost their airtime when the all-talk station became Hot 96.9 have landed on new stations. WGBH announced Wednesday that former WTKK personalities Jim Braude and Margery Eagan are the new cohosts of 89.7 WGBH’s Boston Public Radio. The show airs from noon to 2 p.m. Monday to Friday. They’ll start broadcasting Feb. 25. Callie Crossley and Emily Rooney will contine to contribute to the show, WGBH says. Braude also hosts “Broadside: The News With Jim Braude” weeknights on NECN. Eagan is a columnist for the Boston Herald. WGBH’s decision hardly comes as a surprise. In early January, Braude and Eagan did a guest spot that was widely regarded as an audition for a long-term assignment. Meanwhile, Rick Shaffer, of “The Money Show” on WTKK, will host a program about real estate on North Shore 104.9 from 9-10 a.m. Saturdays starting Feb. 16. And Michael Graham will be heard on stations in Plymouth, Worcester, Concord, and Southbridge.
