2/1 HOT 97 Updates: Del Gado Fired, Lynn Fired, Station Will Donates $1 Million!
Feb 1 Updates: HOT 97's Del Gado Fired, Lynn Fired, Emmis Donates $1 Million!
National Immigrant Solidarity Network
In first steps of our victory, Emmis faxed a press release to AMWD - it says that they are firing Rick Del Gado and Todd Lynn, and donating $1 million to Give2Asia for Tsunami relief.
Miss Jones, DJ Envy and Tasha Hightower are getting two-week suspensions. Miss Info has not been suspended.
The newspaper stories: HOT 97 'Tsunami Song' fallout: 3 suspended, 2 fired For two, tsunami joke is a swan song
However, we believe it's still not enough. In addition to firing the scapegoats, Miss Jones should be fired too! Insiders are saying that it's so apparent that Emmis and Hot 97 are more concerned with getting Miss Jones back on the air for the all important February ratings sweeps period (and for Black History Month)! As NYC Council Member Liu says, "Emmis Communications $1 Million Offer is Too Little, Too Late"
Our Struggle is not over yet, please keep the pressure continue by:Please Sign Our Petition Letter to Protest HOT 97!
