Returning to ENTERCOM Talk WRKO-A/BOSTON after a two day suspension, midday host JOHN DEPETRO apologized FRIDAY for using the term "fag" to refer to MASSACHUSETTS TURNPIKE AUTHORITY Chairman MATT AMORELLO on TUESDAY's show.
DEPETRO apologized to those offended and to the station's management and audience, adding "plain and simple, that is not the type of language that should be used on any show and certainly will not be used on my show ever again." DEPETRO did not apologize to AMORELLO, who is married, for his earlier comments.
