Kenny out at KRBZ 96.5 FM "The Buzz"

July 18, 2003

ENTERCOM Alternative KRBZ (96.5 THE BUZZ)morning man KENNY HOLLAND of the KENNY & AFENTRA MORNING BUZZ was let go on 7/17, following an on-air bit between a Professional Escort and a JOHN on 7/7 that management termed "inappropriate" and "over the line." KENNY indicated there was no outcry of listener complaints. In fact, the next day KRBZ OM/PD MIKE KAPLAN told KENNY his aircheck had been reviewed and that the general consensus was "it's not that bad." Incidentally, morning partner AFENTRA was off the day of the incident.
KENNY explains, "The week prior there were over 100 JOHNS arrested by local police in a sting operation. We were attempting to illustrate what transpires for members of the audience that may be unfamiliar. BEAN THE HORNEY DWARF played the part of the JOHN and "GINGER" acted as the escort. After the negotiation of GINGER's fee, BEAN and GINGER left the studio for (OM/PD) MIKE KAPLAN's office to "complete the transaction."

He continues, "We monitored the office through MIKE's speaker phone and broadcast the noise from the office. Both GINGER and BEAN deny that any money changed hands or that there was any sex act performed. I did not observe BEAN and GINGER while they were in the office. "

Meanwhile, this morning MD/afternooner LAZLO joined AFENTRA on THE MORNING BUZZ.
