ESPN Sports WMVP-A (ESPN 1000)/CHICAGO has suspended weekend host and market mainstay CHET COPPOCK after the host made a joke about Jews on his FEBRUARY 2nd show. Asked to spell "Jewish," COPPOCK responded "Money. M-O-N-E-Y." GM JIM PASTOR suspended COPPOCK, who will return to the air on FEBRUARY 23rd.
"I made an offensive comment I truly regret," said COPPOCK in a statement issued after the suspension was announced. "It doesn't reflect my views or those of WMVP. I sincerely apologize."
