WKQI Detroit Morning Show Contest Chooses Between 'Virgins' And 'Sluts'

Yes, friends, radio morning shows have been known be raunchy, politically incorrect and even sexist, but iHEARTMEDIA Top 40 WKQI (CHANNEL 9-5-5)/DETROIT seems to be taking the cake with the latest stunt pulled by its MOJO IN THE MORNING program.
The station is holding a contest to send a couple of young women to SPRING BREAK by encouraging them call in and have the hosts figure out whether they’re a “slut” or a “virgin,” which the callers apparently reveal to producers ahead of time.
The hosts pose questions to each girl about their previous relationships, where they went to college or even hair color to determine whether the young lady in question in in fact one or the other. After the radio personalities have made their guesses, the caller ‘fesses up, and their admission is greeted by “She’s a sluuuut!” or "She's a virgin."
Longtime co-host SPIKE dealt with blowback of the contest on-air: “You know, MOJO, people are mad at us for this contest, like, ‘Why you making them say they’re a slut?’ That was the whole casting of the trip! We wanted to send one virgin, one slut, see how they enjoy SPRING BREAK.”
