Not sure if he’s on today (I have Howie on in the background, myself, and only found out through a post on the radio-info.com board). The comment may have been earlier in the week.
Recently Jeff Katz filled in for Howie. He has done fill-ins for Jerry Doyle and was on WRKO years ago; when he got to RKO he said he had been fired in Calif. for joking about illegals
(he said Taco Bell should give out prizes to people for running over illegals, IIRC)
Such comments add nothing to the debate (it doesn’t even work as satire) and his employer is right to repremand him over such a remark.
I really liked Jeff Katz. Much better than Avi Nelson or the Colonel...but never better than Howie!
