Another radio host in hot water
Rochester, N.Y. -- As local radio hosts were fired over controversial comments, another radio host is being called out for comments in a blog.
The vice president of Clear Channel Radio, Bob Morgan, called a blog, posted by 1180 WHAM Radio host Bob Lonsberry, insensitive.
Lonsberrys blog, which has been removed from the stations website, also criticized transgender benefits.
In a statement, Bob Morgan says: "Though Bob Lonsberry is entitled to his opinion about the City of Rochesters health care plan, his blog post and comments about members of the transgender community were insensitive. His remarks do not reflect the position or attitudes of the station or its management. We cannot discuss employee personnel matters, but I can tell you that the station has removed the post and is extending an invitation to local leaders of the LGBT community to meet with Bob Lonsberry and speak on the topic."
