The JERSEY CITY POLICE DEPARTMENT has launched an investigation into a stunt in which CLEAR CHANNEL Top 40 WHTZ (Z100)/NEW YORK morning show personality GREG T. was allegedly driving around JERSEY CITY, NJ while blindfolded. The JERSEY JOURNAL reports that the stunt occurred on WEDNESDAY (10/11), and that ELVIS DURAN AND THE Z MORNING ZOO personality and Z100 Public Service Director JOHN BELL was also in the vehicle.
CLEAR CHANNEL SVP ROB WILLIAMS characterized the stunt as "a staged theater-of-the-mind performance for our listening audience," saying, "GREG T. was never actually blindfolded. He was in fact wearing a veil made of pantyhose material on his head."
However. JERSEY CITY POLICE have deemed the incident potentially "alarming and irresponsible," and the investigation continues.
