It has come to our attention that the Murphy in the Morning Show MAY have engaged in an illegal phone call during their show today. These allegations are being taken very seriously and we are launching an internal investigation into the matter. Until this matter is resolved we are suspending all the members of the Murphy in the Morning Show including all Murphy in the Morning Show content indefinitely. We hope to resolve this matter quickly and appreciate your patience during this investigation.

A station employee said the incident happened before 9 a.m. Thursday morning and involved a caller who might not have known he was on the air.

    The story on the Radio Boards is that this was a Publicity Stunt. Pretty good one. It’s got newspaper coverage, TV coverage and our coverage. Basic Rule: If you are sinking in the ratings, get some FREE publicity.

    Now all WKZL needs to do is provide some entertainment. The lost me years ago before they moved to Greensboro from Winston-Salem.

    What about “Python” Wilson Thomas?

    He was a wild man on Power 97 and he never got the boot did he?

    PLEASE DON’T FALL FOR THIS WACKY RADIO STUNT! IF THIS MAN COULD DO A DECENT SHOW, HE WOULDN’T RESORT TO THESE TIRED 1977 TACTICS! THE ONLY THING LAMER THAN HIS STUNT IS THE LOCAL MEDIA WHO COVERED THIS AS ACTUAL NEWS! THEY SHOULD BE ASHAMED OF THEMSELVES!

    I love people who think they know what happened. Why would you do a publicity stunt when they are #1, I work for a competing station and I see the ratings and they are number 1 by far, and have been for a long time. They beat everybody in all demos, except men which isn’t their focus and isn’t a focus of CHR stations. Our station would kill for a morning show with as much content and talent as theirs.
