Pennsylvania DJ Fired for Repeating Imus' Racially Charged Comments As Part of Contest
By MICHAEL RUBINKAM
ALLENTOWN, Pa. Apr 11, 2007 (AP)— A radio station fired its longtime morning DJ Wednesday after he encouraged listeners to repeat talk-show host Don Imus' racially charged comments in an on-air contest.
Gary Smith told WSBG-FM listeners to call and say "I'm a nappy-headed ho" for Tuesday's "Phrase that Pays" contest, said Rick Musselman, executive vice president of station owner Nassau Broadcasting Partners L.P.
Musselman said three of the listeners who called were awarded tickets to a NASCAR promotion at a local club.
