December 12, 2008 at 3:45 PM (PT)
CUMULUS Talk WMAC-A/MACON PD/host CHRIS KROK's scheduled appearance at a police banquet SATURDAY has one City Council member saying she won't go to the event unless KROK is uninvited. ELAINE LUCAS has been the subject of KROK's on-air criticism since he joined the station earlier this year, and she has asked other council members to join her in boycotting the banquet in an e-mail that led to a lengthy exchange of e-mails that ended up copied to the local media.
MACON police administrator MAGGIE LOPEZ told WMAZ-TV/MACON that KROK was invited "months ago" and has made many supportive comments about the police, and that she does not plan to disinvite KROK, calling such a move "disrespectful to him and a lot of officers who expect to see him."
