WSTW's Spenser Graves Suspended Over Reposting Controversial Photo
May 28, 2014 at 3:55 AM (PT)
DELMARVA Adult Top 40 WSTW/WILMINGTON, DE's "The Wakeup Crew" host SPENCER GRAVES, "has been suspended for posting an edited version of a controversial photo reportedly included in Salesianum School’s yearbook," reports DELAWAREONLINE.COM. He's scheduled to return at 5:30a TOMORROW.
GRAVES explained the situation in a post on TUMBLR, writing “we talked about a picture ... in the Salesianum yearbook of a cross country runner who was fully exposed, out of his running shorts. Their picture was never edited. We told the story briefly,” he said, and asked listeners to share high school embarrassments. Later came “calls, tweets, FACEBOOK posts and e-mails regarding the actual picture.”
VP/GM MICHAEL REATH told THE NEWS JOURNAL that GRAVES, at WSTW more than seven years, was suspended as “a result of how the photo was handled online and how it was handled after more information became available from the school.” The yearbook gaffe “was a news story,” he said, but GRAVES went too far.
