Bader's Back On Air At WTAQ
November 16, 2009 at 4:25 PM (PT)
JERRY BADER is back on the air at MIDWEST COMMUNICATIONS Talk WTAQ-A/GREEN BAY after a two-week suspension for comments about WISCONSIN Lt. Governor BARBARA LAWTON on his blog, for which he apologized on OCTOBER 29th.
On the site TODAY, BADER wrote, "MIDWEST COMMUNICATIONS Pres. DUKE WRIGHT announced this morning that I have been reinstated to on-air status as of TODAY. DUKE pointed to the fact that I've been with the company 10years, have a number of off-air duties (as PD) and have an otherwise spotless record. He also pointed to the overwhelming support from listeners."
BADER had written on his blog on the station website that LAWTON's withdrawal from next year's gubernatorial race was due to marital difficulties; the host retracted the comments and apologized after he reported that he had "lost confidence in the sources" for the story.
