Presumably at a salary substantially less than the $1 million he was paid by WTKK-FM (96.9), Jay Severin is about to resurface on Boston airwaves. Starting tomorrow, Severin, who was fired by WTKK last April for comments he made about women, will host a show from 3-6 p.m. on WXKS-AM (TALK 1200). “I am a fan, friend, and follower of TALK 1200’S Jeff Katz, Glenn Beck, Rush [Limbaugh], and Sean Hannity,’’ said Severin, whose ideology is in line with those Obama bashers. Prone to making provocative pronouncements - he once said that in his world “the poor and stupid would starve’’ - Severin was axed by WTKK for defending the idea of a boss sleeping with female staffers. He had done so himself, he said, “because I could.’’ Coincidentally, Severin’s old time slot at ’TKK has a new host. The station announced yesterday that Michael Graham will now be heard from 3-7 p.m. starting today.
