    Radio bomb-tosser Jay Severin, fired from WTKK after he boasted of bedding a bevy of “mostly attractive young women” who worked for him, returns to the Boston airwaves on WXKS-AM Talk 1200 Thursday in his old afternoon-drive slot. “I’m tremendously excited,” Severin told the Track. “Everybody wants to play for the hometown club, and these are the guys I listen to. To be a part of that team and that lineup is a tremendous opportunity and honor.” Severin joins a roster that includes local yakker Jeff Katz in morning drive and syndicated talent Glenn Beck, Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity...

    GREATER MEDIA Talk WTKK (96.9 BOSTON TALKS)/BOSTON talk host JAY SEVERIN is out. The company suspended the talk show host last month (NET NEWS 3/31), and reports last week (NET NEWS 4/1) claimed the suspension was related to comments about sexual harassment. GREATER MEDIA released the following statement: "GREATER MEDIA TODAY ended its relationship with JAY SEVERIN. Our company has always encouraged a free and open dialogue on a variety of issues and topics, and we will continue to be guided by that principle.

    WTKK radio has indefinitely suspended button-pushing, talk jock Jay Severin — nearly two years after yanking him off the air for a month following his crude remarks about Mexican immigrants on his afternoon-drive show. “Jay was suspended after we received serious complaints about the recent content of his show,” the station said in a statement today. “The matter is currently under review.”

    Bay State Gov. Deval Patrick blasted WTKK yakker Jay Severin on his own radio station today, calling his remarks about Mexicans “way over the line” - and said he was “embarrassed” to be associated with the Hub station. Patrick - who skewered Severin during his monthly segment on Jim Braude and Margery Eagan’s WTKK-FM (96.9) show - said he was “disappointed” that the station let the right-wing host back on the air this week. “I found Jay Severin’s comments on the air about Mexicans hateful and hurtful, really just way over the line and I was just as disappointed, frankly,...

    It’s time for Jay Severin and Scot Lehigh to settle things once and for all. The libertarian Boston talk-radio star and the center-left Boston Globe columnist have been feuding for the last half-decade, with no end in sight. Lehigh, who has strongly criticized Severin for his statements about America’s efforts to stop terrorism and has raised questions about the WTKK-FM broadcaster’s biographical claims, is now involved in a new endeavor known as “Jay Watch.” Lehigh says this is “…an effort to assist WTKK’s putatively penitent p.m. host as he tries to clean up his act” (Severin recently returned to the...

    Great news for Bay State talk-radio fans: WTKK-FM star Jay Severin will return to the airwaves Tuesday, June 2. Severin, who has been with the station for nearly a decade, was indefinitely suspended in late-April for caustic comments about Mexico’s role in the recent swine flu scare. It is expected that we will hear a kinder, gentler Severin going forward. That’s a good thing: when Severin avoids incendiary rhetoric and focuses on addressing the national scene from a straightforward, conservative/libertarian perspective, he is at his best. Severin never needed to imitate Michael Savage to become the top dog of afternoon-drive...

    After a month-long indefinite suspension following his offensive remarks about illegal Mexican migrants, WTKK radio host Jay Severin will return to the airwaves Tuesday, the Hub station announced today. In a statement, station management said they have had conversations with Severin over the past several weeks about his “hurtful, inappropriate remarks” and that he understands the station will not accept “this type of commentary on our airwaves in the future.” The station said that based on that understanding, they have agreed to conclude Severin’s suspension and he will return to his afternoon-drive show Tuesday. “We want to emphasize that WTKK...

    WTTK-FM talk radio host Jay Severin had been warned about crossing the line from edgy to hateful. Not long after WRKO-AM (680) fired talk show host John DePetro in 2006 for making homophobic remarks about two state officials, WTKK-FM (96.9) gathered its on-air talent, out-of-town and local, for an all-star event. Each host was invited to deliver an opening monologue, then take a seat onstage for a round-table discussion. Like WRKO, WTKK thrives on provocative programming, none more envelope-pushing than Jay Severin, the station's feisty afternoon drive-time host. A self-described libertarian and "rock 'n' roll Republican," Severin has long been...

    Jay Severin–or at least, a modified version thereof–could return to WTKK’s airwaves soon. According to WGBH-TV’s Greater Boston, Severin–who was indefinitely suspended last month for controversial comments about Mexico’s role in the spread of swine flu–may be brought back under three conditions: a restructuring of his salary (said to be around $1 million annually), a change in the overly sarcastic tone of his show, and an agreement to broadcast the show from WTKK’s Dorchester, Mass. studios, as opposed to his home. A toned-down Severin will be a better Severin. The “Extreme Games” host had a less acerbic tone during his...

    Station may cut ties WTKK talker Jay Severin’s future at the radio station still remains in limbo two weeks after he was yanked off the air. Station spokeswoman Heidi Raphael said yesterday that Severin remains on suspension. She declined further comment. Severin was suspended indefinitely without pay April 30 after calling illegal Mexican immigrants “leeches” and the world’s “lowest of primitives” when talking about the swine flu on his show. Severin’s drawn-out absence - and silence - has fueled speculation that the station wants to reduce his hefty salary or cut him loose altogether. “I just get the impression from...

    Is hate speech merely in the ear of the listener? In a bizarre editorial, the Boston Phoenix has called on Boston talk-radio station WTKK-FM (96.9) to consider ending its nearly ten-year association with afternoon radio host Jay Severin, who was recently suspended for hyperbolic comments about Mexico’s role in the spread of swine flu. While Severin’s rhetoric did go over the edge, the Phoenix may be going too far. “Severin was being more than an advocate for his anti-immigrant point of view, more than provocative, more than even incendiary,” the editorial states. “In our opinion, he was being hateful, trying...

    It’s starting to look like the baptism/murder scene from “The Godfather” at Greater Media Inc. In December the company terminated outspoken, highly-visible WBT-AM/Charlotte afternoon drive host Jeff Katz for undisclosed reasons. This past Thursday, Greater Media hit WTKK-FM/Boston afternoon driver Jay Severin with an unpaid, open-ended suspension for anti-Hispanic remarks – including recent comments tying the spread of Swine Flu to illegal immigrants from Mexico. A suspension without pay is often a kiss on the cheek on the way to termination. If Severin does return to the job, it can’t possibly be the same anything-goes show. Are these moves somehow...

Severin was suspended indefinitely in the wake of controversy surrounding his recent remarks concerning Mexico’s role in the spread of swine flu. Boston Globe op-ed columnist Scot Lehigh, a long-time Severin nemesis, believes the “Extreme Games” host is getting his just due. “I’ve long been a critic of Severin’s crude, bombastic, xenophobic discourse,” Lehigh notes. “Over the years, I have highlighted a few of his more blatant lies, outrages, and...

Heidi Raphael, a spokeswoman for the station, said Severin had been suspended indefinitely from his afternoon drive-time show. She declined to say which of his comments - made since an outbreak of swine flu was linked to Mexico in recent days - sparked the suspension.

That’s pathetic,” said Severin’s agent and attorney, George Tobia. “Leaving...

Jay's show kicked in at around 7:10 pm.
