KDND Wake Up Call Defends Coach's Right To Pose Nude

That headline got your attention, right? And, it also got the attention of all of SACRAMENTO as ENTERCOM Top 40 KDND (107.9 THE END) and the WAKE UP CALL got behind a PASA ROBLE HIGH SCHOOL Cheerleading Coach, CARLIE BECK, who was fired after it became known that she posed nude for PLAYBOY.
Here's what happened: A student who wanted to tryout for cheeleading was denied that opportunity as she broke a recently implemented an "unexcused abscence rule" when she failed to bring in a note, while home sick for just one day.
The story has a twist. So the parents went to the principal, and asked for leniency saying it was their fault, not hers. The principal was unbending, and then the parents turned over to the school principal the PLAYBOY photos as a "get back." And CARLIE was then fired.
Drama overflowed on the airwaves as WAKE UP CALL's JASON BARSKY explained, "The student called us anonymously, told us who she was, and began to cry and explained what her parents did and why." (Click here for the student' sob story.)
"Everyone heard the story, and her cyring and the switchboard phones lit up. We even called the principal who was in no mood to discuss it.
"TODAY (4/17) the fired coach, CARLIE, called with her vibe on being fired for nudity -- and it looks some lawyers are gonna make some money."
BARSKY added, "The story has been picked up by all the local media, and the calls from CNN and other networks have begun."
