Jeff Katz Fired From WBT ” But It Was Based On Business Reasons ”


Ultra-Right Wing Radio Host Jeff Katz was fired from Charlotte, NC radio station WBT-1110 AM this week. WBT Vice President and General Manager Rick Jackson and Program Director Bill White spent 3 hours on the air during the 3 -6 PM old Jeff Katz time slot Tuesday, December 2, 2008 taking calls from listeners. I would have to say it was admirable to see a couple of managers willing to stand up for a decision by taking on criticism in such a public format. It was pretty funny because Bill White was playing producer and running the board and fumbled around and made some mistakes, which made it fun to listen too. Some callers were not happy with the decision that Jeff was fired and said they would no longer listen to the station. But I would have to say they were in the minority. Most people that called were happy that Jeff was being replaced.
Bottom line is not about pressure from about any group. Its not about the hate that Jeff spewed about Muslims, African Americans, Immigrants, or the Poor. WBT is a big business. The Jeff Katz Show is number 5 in the stations target demographic. Jeff wasn’t what WBT was looking for, and wasn’t bringing in the right numbers because if he did, he would still be on the air. Personally, I don’t care why he is gone, I am just glad he is. Hate has no place in Charlotte.

Jeff Katz is Fired From WBT and the People Rejoice


Jeff Katz is no longer the 3pm-6pm host of the WBT afternoon show. Mr. Katz was a polarizing figure ever since his arrival in Charlotte, NC a couple of years ago. His brand of hate politics will not be missed by me or a large segment of the Charlotte region. Hats off to the management of WBT.

Tara Servatius Named
New Afternoon Host at WBT AM & FM

Charlotte, NC (December 1, 2008): Greater Media announces Tara Servatius has been named the new Monday through Friday, 3pm – 6pm afternoon drive on-air host at WBT AM & FM in Charlotte, North Carolina. She will begin her new on-air duties on Monday, December 8th, 2008.

She has won more than two dozen state and national journalism awards for column writing and investigative reporting while she was a reporter in the Charlotte market for The Leader and Creative Loafing newspapers. Among her most recent was a first place news enterprise reporting award from the North Carolina Press Association about the weaknesses in Charlotte’s overburdened court system.

“Tara has increasingly proven to be a superstar in waiting,” said Greater Media Charlotte Vice President and Market Manager Rick Jackson. “Her show is less about politics and more about a journalistic view of how local government operates. She’s a brilliant investigative reporter and effectively constructs her views based on real case studies and supporting data.”

Rick Jackson and WBT Program Director Bill White will be on air Tuesday, December 2nd at 3pm to discuss the programming change and answer listener questions.

Charlotte, NC Voters Bitch Slap Jeff Katz and WBT

slap
It would seem that hate speech, racism and homophobia backfired on the Republican Party this election cycle. Jeff Katz and WBT Hate Radio have spent months in a campaign against Barack Obama. Monday thru Friday from 9:00am-6:00pm there has been a constant stream of hatred and ignorant filth piled upon the airwaves from their 50,000 watt radio station. It would seem that karma has bitten them in the posterior. NONE of the candidates they supported were elected. So who are WBT and Jeff Katz trying to sell their hate to and who are the idiots that are buying advertising from these Nimrods ? Here is how it went down in Charlotte, Mecklenburg County , North Carolina.

President/Vice President
Obama/Biden(D) 61.83% 252,652 votes
Mccain/Palin(R) 37.44% 152,957 votes
Barr/Root(L) 0.46% 1,891 votes
WRITE-IN 0.27% 1,092 votes

US Senate
Kay Hagan(D) 61.59% 248,454 votes
Elizabeth Dole(R) 35.47% 143,059 votes
Christopher Cole(L) 2.89% 11,652 votes
WRITE-IN 0.05% 211 votes

Governor of North Carolina
Bev Perdue(D) 49.04% 198,631 votes
Pat McCrory(R) 48.94% 198,246 votes The 8 time mayor of Charlotte that had a show on WBT
Mike Munger(L) 2.02% 8,184 votes

Clearly WBT does not represent the people of Charlotte as you can see. We deserve better and its an embarrassment to think that when visitors come to the Queen City they might actually hear the filth that Jeff Katz and WBT puts out there and leave thinking that we are some backwater trapped in the 1960’s south. Its a pitiful way for a company to make money and they should be ashamed. Jeff Katz has been fired from other jobs for spreading hate. Why should Charlotte have to suffer his hate ?

API – African Press International Obama FOX Tape Fraud Exposed

API or African Press International has made false claims that they have a tape of Michelle Obama making some kind of incriminating statements about Barack Obama. From the day they said they had this tape they have been star of the conspiracy theory blogosphere. Problem is, the tape doesn’t exist and they have made up a different excuse on almost a daily basis on why they will release the tape the next day. Sad enough, there are people dumb enough to believe them.

Story Follows By: Jim Dent

Michelle Obama is alleged to have placed this damaging phone call to a news agency called API, “African Press International.” Okay, let’s check them out.

Well, that’s odd. A self-described “international” media organization – using a WordPress blog site?

That’s odd. They’re based in Norway. No African, other European, or African bureaus. Their site promises that at some unspecified future date they “will have will have five branch offices spread as follows: East, Central, West, Southern Africa and one in the United Kingdom.”

Their home page features a hideously amateurish series of photos of “African” looking people, with the caption “Our News Team”. No-one is identified. None of the click-through ID links work. Readers are invited to register to become “Corresspondents” (sic).

No editorial board is named. Only one actual name is cited: their “”CHIEF EDITOR KORIR”, who ” IS A MEMBER OF INVESTIGATIVE REPORTERS AND EDITORS INTERNATIONAL.”

A review of their archives reviews a curious, patched together assortment of press clippings and releases on various topics. However, their top and ongoing American news story is anti-Obama coverage that essentially reproduces, uncritically,most of the major smears promulgated over the last year.

The “African Press International” is owned by “The Rainbow Foundation”, to which they provide a link – which turns out to be a website created last week, on another WordPress blog spot. The “Foundation” lists a number of objectives that oddly have nothing to do with Obama or US politics. They also list a number of “projects” being run by the Rainbow foundation: however, it turns out there AREN’T any actual project. What there is a list of countries where they say they’re GOING to run projects at some unspecified future date – but NO projects.

Now, there IS another “Rainbow Foundation” – NOT the one that “owns” African Press International, but an authentic charity. And THEIR website has an urgent note up warning folks of a fraudulent “Rainbow Foundation”, soliciting funds and making claims using their name.

So we have allegations being made by “news agency” on a blogsite, owned by a “Foundation” that claims to have been in operation since 1995, but whose website was only set up last week – a foundation WITHOUT ANY PROJECTS except a website that smears Obama, and apparently appropriating the name of a real children’s charity. In short, an obvious fraud run by lying, anti-Obama scumbags.

Gosh. That’s a pretty compelling source. It’s certainly easy to see why a First-Lady-In-Waiting would break campaign strategy to call and harass a fraudulent blogsite masquerading as a news agency run by a fake foundation.

LINK TO ANOTHER ABC NEWS ARTICLE

Its fairly simple for people that aren’t sitting in a basement with tin foil on their heads to protect them from the government mind control. API is a SCAM and has no tape of Michelle Obama to release. And you can bank on that Missy lol

Jeff Katz and WBT Lie about Obama’s Citizenship

Barack Obama's Hawaiian Birth Certificate

Barack Obama

WBT Charlotte, NC Hate Radio Host Jeff Katz has been perpetuating another lie. He has been questioning the citizenship of Senator and Presidential candidate Barack Obama. As in the post from his website below dated September 25, 2008 he has been perpetuating the lie that Barack Obama was born in Africa. This is simply a racist ploy and is gutter journalism at best. It took about a 30 second search on google to find out this was a total lie. Barack Obama was born in Hawaii and submitted the documentation to the nay sayers over 6 months ago. I have attached the links for people interested in the truth. Jeff katz and WBT have proved once again they are out to appeal to white supremacists and hate mongers. WBT is a station that supports hatred and racism. There is no place for a station like this on the public airwaves. Having and FCC license is a privilege not a right.

LINK TO BARACK OBAMA’S BIRTH CERTIFICATE

Below is an example of one of the racist post from the Official WBT website:

Jeff Katz

Subject: Obama actually a Kenyan citizen?

Howdy Jeff,

I just read an article posted by worldnetdaily.com that says that Pennsylvania DEMOCRAT Philip J. Berg has “sued Sen. Barack Obama demanding he prove his American citizenship–” and claims to have had a recorded telephone conversation with Obama’s grandmother in Kenya who says she was present at his (Obama’s) birth in Kenya. The article also explains the consequences if that is the case. Please see copied and pasted article below.

If this guy’s information is legitimate, than Obama doesn’t qualify to be a Senator, let alone the President of the United States of Ameria!

Also if this is true, the information must be promulgated to government authorities as well as to ALL voters.

Thank you for your work on radio and for looking at this specific situation
