Talk Host Raises Money For Billboard

CUMULUS Talk WMAC-A/MACON morning talk host CHRIS KROK is raising money to put a MACON city councilwoman’s derogatory quote about a constituent on a billboard.
In DECEMBER, councilwoman ELAINE LUCAS sent a female KROK listener a message using her official city council e-mail, saying, "You go kiss your mother's ass and go to hell, you loser." When KROK heard that MACON's WESLEYAN COLLEGE was awarding LUCAS with an "outstanding community leader" award. KROK listeners bombarded the school with e-mails and calls, leading the college to pull its board members' names and corporate sponsors off its website.
The award was given SATURDAY (2/ 28); in response, KROK is looking to raise funds to put a billboard up for one month in front of the WESLEYAN entrance that has the LUCAS quote and mentions that she was awarded the "outstanding community leader" award -- along with WMAC’s logo and KROK’s show time, naturally.
