He can be entertaining but has a big ego (and yet is secretive about his private life), self-contradicting (Kerry-esque flip-flops?) etc.
just started in the 7-10 pm slot in philly. not enough info to report. anyone else have the scoop on him?
Have been listening to new Jay Severin show. It can be entertaining, yes, but the questions about the "fake Pulitzer", etc., still linger.
1) Via http://www.jayseverin.org (a Severin watchdog site), go to "Jay's Pulitzer" for a transcript of a call Jay took on air the other day. He mentioned that the Globe had to print a retraction...but failed to say that the retraction
was in regards to Jay's Muslim comments, NOT one of the "fake Pulitzer" claim!
2) A caller tonight asked him how his lovely wife Renee was doing. Jay accused the caller of "making a name up out of thin air". Now, Jay's personal life in some ways can be seen as his own business but then again he is a public figure (and fodder for gossip columnists, etc.) The guy paints himself on air as a young (not so), swingin' single (not so). Oh well, is he fake? Is he entertaining? Both.
Do I have anything against him? No, but it's fun to talk about this stuff. Again, the show can be good at times, and if he turns out to get more listeners than Rush, more power to him. But figured I'd mention these...
Jay Severin: Best Actor.
Anyone know what stations he'll be on? I want to see if I can pick up the broadcast in Va Beach.
Severin finally admits he does his show from Long Island.
