Tampa Mayor Declares 'Be Nice To Dan York Day'
June 16, 2009 at 11:01 AM (PT)
FRIDAY (6/19) will be "BE NICE TO DAN YORK DAY" in TAMPA after a tongue-in-cheek proclamation was issued TODAY to the GENESIS COMMUNICATIONS Talk WWBA-A/TAMPA host by Mayor PAM IORIO.
The official document cites listeners' "unkind comments and even unmentionable words" leaving YORK with "hurt feelings" that could "lead to a loss of self-esteem and may eventually lead to many personal problems." The proclamation asks listeners, "regardless of their personal feelings towards DAN or the opinions he expresses, to be kind to our local radio personality."
