Romney spokesman Eric Fehrnstom said the governor taped his segment this morning from WBZ's radio studio in Boston.

Harvey, who is syndicated by ABC Radio, has a weekly audience of more than 22 million, and can generally be found on the same station where Rush Limbaugh and other conservative talkers can also be heard.
