    Is it me or are they all trying to be Howard Stern. I listen to Dale,Holley,and Keefe via online stream. I hear the morning shows promo and they are always yelling at each other and not about sports either.

    Shirley Leung, Globe:
    >>At least two organizations, including Comcast Corp., have suspended advertising on sports-talk radio station WEEI following racially insensitive comments from one of its hosts.

    The cable giant and the City of Boston Credit Union have pulled their campaigns, effectively immediately, after midday host Christian Fauria imitated a well-known sports agent by speaking in a stereotypical Asian accent.

    Hopefully, Fauria and company will resist the temptation to comment at all on Ms. Leung, lest foot again be inserted in mouth.

    Some perspective: Sen.D'amato did something very similar with an Asian accent on the Imus show and sent his political career into a tailspin he couldn't pull out of.http://www.nytimes.com/1995/04/06/ny...off-furor.html
    Different time though and Christian doesn't look to have any problems at EEI.
    And calling Chuck Schumer a "putzhead" didn't win D'Amato much favor with the Jewish community.

    I wonder when Leung will go for the jugular and call for her boss to sever Red Sox broadcast ties with WEEI.

    I think Keefe has been a great addition to the Dale and Holley show.

    RadioInsight: "During its 12 hour suspension of local programming so staff can attend sensitivity training, Entercomís 93.7 WEEI Boston will air NBC Sports Radio programming including a six hour edition of PFT Live with Mike Florio from 6am-12pm."
