The SCRANTON TIMES-TRIBUNE is reporting that ENTERCOM Country WGGY (FROGGY 101)/WILKES-BARRE/SCRANTON, PA afternoon host JAKE (real name: JACOB NAVARRO) has been accused of “allegedly reporting ‘false and defamatory’ information” about LAKELAND SCHOOL DISTRICT.
The district is claiming that JAKE erroneously informed listeners on DECEMBER 17th and 20th that “a LAKELAND student had taken a gun to school and school officials covered up the matter.”
The school board unanimously voted last night (2/16) to authorize their attorneys to write letters to the radio station and its affiliates demanding an apology from JAKE. The district claims that JAKE’s statements were “completely false” and that his actions were "irresponsible, malicious, unethical and damaging to the community and represent the worst in smear tactics."
According to the article, attempts to reach FROGGY 101 and JAKE regarding this matter have been unsuccessful.
