Cumulus suspended The Kimmer Show (Talk 106.7/Atlanta) for three days over comments made about Representative Lucy McBath. The comments had to do with Karen Handel running against McBath and the conversation was about gun control.
According to The Atlanta Journal Constitution, host Pete Davis said, “You’re there to knock Lucy McBath back into the kitchen.” “Yeah,” said lead host Kim “The Kimmer” Peterson. “Go back to sewing stuff and leave my guns alone.”
Cumulus sent the following statement to CNN after the incident made national news: “”The comments made on The Kimmer Show regarding Representative McBath were unacceptable, offensive and not consistent with our values as a company. In accordance with company policy, Kim (‘The Kimmer’) Peterson, Host, and Pete Davis, Co-Host, were suspended and will apologize to Representative McBath.”
The show was suspended Monday through Wednesday and back on the air Thursday this week. This will all end soon anyway, Cumulus recently sold the signal to EMF and the format will be flipped to their K-Love format.
