"Jim Polito brought a unique voice to the
waves," said Chris Pinto of the Worcester Republican City Committee.
"He was a big supporter of the City of Worcester, but he has zero tolerance for the
shenanigans of the 'Shamrock Club' and the liberal machinations that they get
away with that have this once great city 'Circling the Drain.'"
"Jim's straight talking style is why his show was so wildly successful in Central Mass," Pinto continued. "His voice will be sorely missed and whomever replaces him will have giant shoes to fill."
Representatives for FOX25 and WTAG could not immediately be reached for comment on the staffing change, but GoLocalWorcester has learned that Polito has signed a contract with the station, and the departing radio host posted the television station's logo to his Facebook page on Monday.
native, Polito has hosted The Jim Polito Show weekday mornings from 5 to 9a.m.
on WTAG since the spring of 2008. Prior to returning to Central Mass, Polito
served as the chief investigative reporter for ABC40 in Springfield.
