The more things change, the more they stay the same for a long time Boston sports radio institution.
In the last two decades, WEEI, the sports radio station that had blazed the trail for the sports talk format in the radio industry, has undergone “sensitivity” training for some of its on air hosts after racially insensitive remarks.
This time when WEEI had sensitivity training, it was made mandatory for all employees and the stations owner Entercom substituted NBC sports radio programing for an entire day. The producer of that morning show 19 years ago was Steve Ciaccio. He joined Behind the Media hosts Dan Lothian and Jimmy Young on their show/podcast to talk about the state of sports talk radio then and now.
Behind The Media is available on iTunes, Stitcher, and the CLNS Media Mobile App. You can follow the show on Twitter @LittleParkMedia using the hashtag #BehindTheMedia
