Regan To Keep Sirius Show
December 20, 2006 at 5:02 AM (PT)
USA TODAY reports that controversial editor and publisher JUDITH REGAN, who made headlines with her now-defunct plan to publish a "confession" by O.J. SIMPSON, will keep her weekly radio show, after being fired from her publishing job amid accusations of anti-Semitic comments.
"We don't comment on our on-air personalities' off-air comments," said SIRIUS SATELLITE RADIO VP PATRICK REILLY. He said THE JUDITH REGAN SHOW will continue airing seven times each WEDNESDAY.
REILLY declined to comment on reports that in TODAY's show, taped before REGAN was fired last week, she lashes out at "backstabbers at HARPERCOLLINS."
REGAN is now engaged in a bitter and personal battle with her former bosses, including RUPERT MURDOCH. His media empire includes HARPERCOLLINS, which fired REGAN after a dozen years as head of REGANBOOKS.
