Radio show comment about Native women fires outrage
Later, one of the DJs on the classic rock station tried to make a play off an old Alaska saying, and asked, “Have you made love to the Yukon and peed in a Native woman?” Davis said.
“I was horrified," said Davis. "I was completely shocked, it took a long time to sink in, then I got to work and I sat down at my desk and cried. It’s such a degrading thing to say. It’s incredibly insulting."
On Tuesday afternoon, KBFX owner Clear Channel Communications suspended Woody and Wilcox "indefinitely' and ordered them to attend sensitivity training.
"We are confident that what was said was an isolated incident, and it in no way reflects the views of KBFX station personnel," read a statement posted on the station's Web site.
The station clearly targets men, though women call in on occasion.
The morning talk is laden with innuendo, crude humor and porn references. The station's Web site features a "Babe page" with galleries of scantily-clad models spraying each other with garden hoses and straddling guitars. The site's motto is "Surfing the Web with one free hand."
