Former CITADEL Talk WPRO-A/PROVIDENCE host DAVE BARBER tells the PROVIDENCE BUSINESS NEWS that he will pay for his replacement, current WPRO morning host JOHN DEPETRO, to take a polygraph test to clear his name in the ARBITRON tainted-diary controversy that has plagued the station.
BARBER, now with crosstown CAPITOL TV, said that his offer will be open through the end of the year.
DEPETRO recently disclosed that his wife submitted the six ratings diaries that inflated his show's and the station's ratings; he has returned to the air.
