Murphy In The Morning Back On The Air At WKZL
October 15, 2008 at 7:48 AM (PT)
Last THURSDAY (10/9), DB Top 40 WKZL/GREENSBORO legendary morning man JACK MURPHY raised some hackles doing the on-air phone bit where a listener proposes and there is a $1000 payout if the person on the other end of the line accepts. Well, something went wrong with the call regarding permission to air, listeners complained, fingers were pointed, blame was assigned, JACK was suspended until MONDAY morning (10/13), and the GM did an on-air and on-site apology.
Was it hoax or the real deal? PD JASON GOODMAN told ALL ACCESS, "We reviewed the situation and discovered that nothing illegal happened and all is resolved and the MURPHY IN THE MORNIGN SHOW was back on the air on MONDAY morning. Something interesting happened, too. JACK MURPHY and MURPHY IN THE MORNING was the 6th most searched key word on GOOGLE that day and crashed our station and sister Classic Rocker WKRR's site too -- they are both on the same server."
