Severin: No More Imus Appearances For Me

GREATER MEDIA Talk WTKK/BOSTON afternoon host JAY SEVERIN has decided not to appear on DON IMUS' syndicated show as a guest anymore after a contentious appearance last THURSDAY, reports the BOSTON HERALD's JESSICA HESLAM.
SEVERIN told HESLAM, "Over the last several appearances, I was uncomfortable," noting that he felt that he had lost the vibe and rapport that he had previously had with IMUS. "I felt it. I believe the audience felt it. I thought for everybody’s good, I thought it best to ask to no longer be invited." SEVERIN complained that IMUS' show "has seemed very unreceptive to viewpoints such as mine -- i.e., conservative. Certainly, anti-OBAMA."
On last THURSDAY's show, IMUS called SEVERIN a "moron" and claimed to be playing computer chess while SEVERIN was talking.
