After weeks with an outdated message regarding Jay Severin’s suspension, troubled WTKK has finally updated its website to announce this:
On Tuesday June 2nd, at 3 p.m., Jay Severin will return to the weekday afternoon timeslot on Boston’s Talk Evolution 96.9 FM-WTKK. Jay regrets the remarks for which he was suspended and understands that his comments were indeed wrong and hurtful to the Mexican and Mexican-American communities.
Accordingly, we feel it is time to end Jay’s suspension and welcome him back to WTKK. All of our hosts have strong opinions and talk radio is a format for open and spirited debate about the many issues we face in Boston, New England, our nation and our world.
There will no doubt be times when you disagree with Jay – and our other hosts too – but our ultimate goal is to maintain a level of conversation that is entertaining, compelling, and thought-provoking, yet civil and respectful. While we will not always succeed in walking this line, we will continually strive to do so.
We hope you’ll experience what Jay has to say this Tuesday and every weekday from 3 to 7 p.m.
Many thanks for listening to Boston’s Talk Evolution 96.9 FM-WTKK.
Anyone care to translate this into what they really mean to say?
