BlogTalkRadio Host Kevin Ross Moves The Needle For Diversity On LA Public Airwaves

Days after Kevin Ross, BlogTalkRadio host and host of “America’s Court with Judge Ross” aired a special 2 hour show on the recent rise of inflammatory remarks made against minorities and women over the talk radio airwaves, Los Angeles City Council passed a motion requiring conservative talk radio station KFI-AM 640 and it’s parent company Clear Channel Media, to “do everything in their power” to make sure that their hosts refrain from voicing prejudice sentiment on air.

The motion was raised as a result of public outcry from a number of minority and women’s groups in response to the racially charged comments made by KFI talk show hosts John Kobylt and Ken Chiampou of the “John and Ken Show.” Three days after Whitney Houston died last month, the radio show hosts referred to the pop music icon as a “crack ho.”  The resolution also cites radio host Rush Limbaugh’s recent derogatory commentary on Sandra Fluke.  According to this article on NBC’s site, Councilwoman Jan Perry wrote in her motion that the “Clear Channel Media Holding’s commitment to diversity is not being realized at its flagship station KFI 640 AM, where out of 15 on-air personalities, one is a female and none of them are African American.”

On his BlogTalkRadio program, Kevin Ross was joined by guests including attorney Gloria Allred and Comedian D.L. Hughley who discussed the growing controversy surrounding racist and sexist sentiment spreading across the country’s talk radio waves by hosts.  You can listen to the broadcast in its entirety here.
