CLEAR CHANNEL Talk WWNC-A/ASHEVILLE, NC afternoon "TAKE A STAND" host MATT MITTAN has been suspended for a day for comments criticizing PREMIERE RADIO NETWORKS and FOX NEWS CHANNEL host GLENN BECK.
The ASHEVILLE CITIZEN-TIMES reports that MITTAN was pulled from the air THURSDAY after MITTAN, in his words, "voiced concern about (BECK'S) mental stability based on what I heard on a show this morning and what I see as a deterioration of his cognitive capacity over the last few weeks or the last couple of months." PD BRIAN HALL said, "He's been suspended for 24 hours ... he's had his hand slapped." BECK's show also airs on WWNC.
