*A pair of talk radio hosts in Los Angeles have been yanked off the air temporarily for making insensitive and inappropriate comments about the late Whitney Houston.
Effective immediately, KFI AM 640 hosts John Kobylt and Ken Chiampou have been suspended after calling the late singer a “crack ho” and saying she was “cracked out for 20 years,” according to audio posted online at UrbanInformer.com. [Listen below.]
KFI AM 640 management says it does not condone, support or tolerate statements of this kind.
John Kobylt said, “We made a mistake, and we accept the station’s decision. We used language that was inappropriate, and we sincerely apologize to our listeners and to the family of Ms. Houston.”
John and Ken, who often rail against taxes and illegal immigration, will return to the air Monday, Feb. 27.
