Ingram Drops "F-Bomb" On WABC/NY
May 31, 2006 at 6:01 AM (PT)
Tongues are wagging about the "f-bomb" airing on ABC Talk WABC-A/NEW YORK, and, more importantly, who dropped it and when: top 40 legend DAN INGRAM issued the blast in a phone call to the "post-game show" of the station's annual MEMORIAL DAY "REWOUND" top 40 nostalgia show. INGRAM was being interviewed by MARK SIMONE and NEW YORK RADIO MESSAGE BOARD and MUSICRADIO77.COM proprietor ALLAN SNIFFEN about another jock who used his name when he used the "s-word," got dumped, then promptly used the "f-word" before the delay could reset.
Contacted by the NEW YORK POST's JOHN MAINELLI, INGRAM said that "in 40 years, I've never said that word before on the air. I was quoting myself when I was yelling at the guy who stole my name and realized, 'You really got into it, dummy.' It was a true slip of the tongue, and I apologize to anyone offended, and I'm especially sorry that it happened on MARK's watch because he's such a talented guy. I'd kick myself in the a- if I could - if I can say that word."
