CH HOLDINGS Talk KTRS-A/ST. LOUIS morning host J.C. CORCORAN has got into a virtual pissing match with a listener, sending off a vulgar and profane e-mail that was just posted on ST. LOUIS TODAY.COM. Although management disapproves of CORCORAN's actions, no disciplinary action is planned.
CORCORAN, a longtime fixture on ST. LOUIS radio, had recently replaced CHAS. JACO in mornings, When a listener, former JEFFERSON CO. CHAMBER OF COMMERCE Exec. Dir. FLOYD BROOKMAN, sent e-mails to CORCORAN, writing things such as "We traded Chas. Jaco for this? Really?" and "I'm intelligent enough to recognize a desperate washed up hard rock DJ when I hear one and THAT sounds like someone I know, CORCORAN responded with a vengeance.
"Then why do I make so much more money than you?"J.C. wrote. "And why is my wife hotter than the beast you have to crawl in on top of every night? And why am I a celebrity in this town and you're some dope named ..... FLOYD? You see, dip-**** ... unlike you, I have a life to get back to. So, bye-bye, sucker. You're blocked from this point forward. I'll never see another one of your dumb messages. FLOYD!!!! HA ha hah ha .... "
Little did CORCORAN know that BROOKMAN lost his wife to a heart attack five months ago.
BROOKMAN said he complained to KTRS GM TIM DORSEY and was advised to "let this go." "If J.C. wants to call him to apologize he'll call him to apologize," DORSEY told ST. LOUIS TODAY.COM. "No one knew that the man's wife was deceased. I would never have sent a note like that to anyone in a billion years, but, different strokes for different folks."
