About time, WTKK

I SHARE Scot Lehigh's confusion about why it took WTKK so long to react to Jay Severin's outrageous ranting on his talk show ("Jay Severin, a punk posing as a pundit," Op-ed, May 2).

Lehigh's column appropriately points out that Severin's recent ugly comments about Mexican immigrants were typical of Severin's torrent of reckless remarks. I've heard Severin make an array of grossly irresponsible, inaccurate comments about President Obama, for just one example.

I find it disturbing that WTKK chose for years to allow Severin to keep making mean-spirited, baseless, wild attacks every day before finally suspending him. What does that say about the radio station's management? Is it possible the station based its action on a change in Severin's ratings more than the content of his show?
