Kirk Minihane, the co-host of Boston’s no.1 rated morning show Kirk & Callahan on WEEI, took a leave of absence to address his mental health in September. This morning, he tweeted he’s ready to return but the station is not letting him:

Minihane had previously taken a leave of absence in August, when he checked into a hospital after experiencing suicidal thoughts; he missed less than a week of work and when he announced the leave of absence in September he said he’d come back too fast.
