April 1, 2011 at 5:25 AM (PT)
Is the end near for JAY SEVERIN at GREATER MEDIA Talk WTKK (96.9 BOSTON TALKS)/BOSTON? The BOSTON HERALD's JESSICA HESLAM has the content of the show that got the afternoon host suspended again, and she quotes him as defending AMERICAN APPAREL owner and sexual harassment suit defendant DOV CHARNEY MONDAY (3/28) by asserting that when he owned his own company, he hired "mostly attractive young women" with whom he had sex.
"I slept with virtually every young college girl I hired to be an intern or an employee for my firm," SEVERIN said. "All I was was a young man who was the boss and I did it because I could."
SEVERIN, who signed a seven year deal with the station in 2006 but whose ratings suffered after the PPM was introduced to the BOSTON market, was pulled off the air after TUESDAY's show, with MIKE BOWER filling in.
