Following up on yesterday's events, which I posted about: The station's law firm issued this addtional statement.
Q92 and Ms. Bakerís family have been in communication since the call aired on January 21 with the goal of raising awareness regarding the challenges faced by people with developmental disabilities. When contacted by the family on January 22, the station immediately apologized and reiterates its policy of treating all callers and listeners with the utmost respect and professionalism. The station has engaged with Ms. Bakerís family in an effort to work in conjunction with Natalie Lupi, superintendent of the Tuscarawas County Board of Developmental Disabilities and Bill Green, superintendent of the Stark County Board of Developmental Disabilities to discuss opportunities to collaborate in raising awareness towards people who are developmentally disabled. Q92 is committed to continuing to work with Ms. Bakerís family and these important community organizations to promote these goals.
I asked if any action has been taken against Mo, such as a suspension or required sensitivity traiining. This was the reply:
Q92 is working in conjunction with Ms. Bakerís family and the Tuscarawas and Stark Countyís Boards of Developmental Disabilities in determining the proper course of action to take. Accordingly, by agreement of all parties involved, the station has not taken any action against Mo at this time.
