Boston Radio: Toucher Says Rich Shouldn’t Go To WEEI

Rich Shertenlieb's former WBZ-FM 98.5 The Sports Hub co-host Fred Toucher is hoping Shertenlieb steers clear of the other sports radio station in town, and avoids sports talk radio altogether.

Toucher, the remaining host of 98.5’s “Toucher and Rich,” on Monday addressed the rumors that Shertenlieb made a stop at WEEI on Friday — the same day that Toucher announced Shertenlieb was leaving the morning show after a long run together.

“I heard the rumors… that he was at EEI,” Toucher said during a segment on Monday. “If I was Rich, I would not want to work at a sports station. I would want to get away from it. Like wouldn’t you? Like wouldn’t you, if you had this opportunity, wouldn’t you want to get away from sports?”

“As someone who still does care about him and I truly like him, I would hope that he just does something  where he can just flex that comedic bone man and have fun,” Toucher later added. “He doesn’t like negativity. He doesn’t like being drawn into it with the likes of me. Just go somewhere fun, like go somewhere where it’s more fun, where you don’t have to talk about this crap.”

Toucher recently signed a multiyear contract to stay at 98.5 The Sports Hub.
