That's not failing to read the room.  That's not even acknowledging there's anyone in the room.  Or that there's a room to be in.

Good riddance to racist trash.

Those two should have been canned years ago for transphobia, various slanders of people around the Rochester area, and general assholishness.  Of course the knuckledraggers of Monroe County and beyond loved those two.

"I have never and would never spew such racist hate," she said. "I've told management I won't work at a company that employs people like this. I'm raising my children to love everyone and stand up for what is right. I will, too."


Uhhhhhh.....

They were hired very shortly after being fired from their previous station for flagrant transphobic comments. I'm sure there's a fox affiliate waiting for them to sign.

WDKX and WBER are great locally operated stations. WHAM 1180 is a shiatty clear channel Rush and Hannity station but it broadcasts to "33 states and Canada." The rest is typical Top 40/Pop country shiat.

I moved up here (Pittsford area) a couple of years ago after 20 years in NYC. It's disturbing.

FTFA:  Ray did not actually use the n-word.

Well, yeah, they did. "N-word" is just a workaround. It's the intent that matters.

It's a factor of education and critical thinking skills. Things like bigotry rely on a lack of critical thinking, and a lack of exposure.

For people with no imagination, and no curiosity, if they're not exposed to new ideas and information, they grow up to be little better than automata and will only accept new information that fits a pre-concieved belief structure, because they certainly aren't going to seek it out, particularly when ignorance is treated as a virtue by half the country.

Also, "n-word-ly" has nothing to do with black people. But how am I not surprised they're ignorant too?

Someone actually listened through the commercials on a IHeart channel long enough to hear some airplay!?  Those turds own 3/4 of the starions around here and converted them to playing two crappy "classic" rock or pop somgs followed by ten minutes of ads.

And considering "clever" high school kids tried to use the word in double phrases b/c they think it's so damn funny meant that even the correct usage sounds pretty bad. You can still make your point w/ other words. It's not like santorum, where there really isn't a good replacement word.

Yeah, obviously Rogan got paid and was/is a personality, but I doubt these morning zoo types are making much more than 60-80k per year, unless they're in a major media market.

The Sound was always crap, but compared to KLOS or KRTH, it wasn't crap on fire and exploding. And then Uncle Joe left KLOS for the Sound, and somehow made it even worse than KLOS.

One of the most outwardly racist people I've ever met was my uncle Dick, who lived in Rochester. (He's dead now.)

I'm not saying all the white people in Rochester are racist, but just like everywhere else, too many of them are.

The first two years of KSWD were great.  Deep cuts and album sides, like I remember good FM stations from the seventies.  All selected by live DJs.

Then they got sold to some network, and it was the same SOS shallow playlist like the others.
