well said
night shows are always the more edgy part of the day where more "gets away" but this particular incident is something management at z needs to desperately separate itself from rather than condone the behavior like theyre doing. i smell some criminal filings or at least civil action.

on a side note, this contest he did isnt just in bad taste and possibly illegal, it also served absolutely no purpose to the listener or the radio station. letting people win tickets by emailing you personally their naked photos? how does that build tsl? how does that keep your listeners tuned in waiting for the next break that comes out of your show? this kid tyler is clueless.

: As a 31 year old, I have stopped listening to Z104. It's not just because of Tyler Kruze, however his late show is definitely a major contributing factor. I used to love listening to Connie & Fish bicker back & forth and hear about their friends & family. I liked Ryan Walker too. However within the last 2 months or so it seems that no matter when I turned on the radio (during "kid-appropriate" times or not) I would hear something offensive. Whether it was C&F talking about @ss or 8ithces (to me & my children those are still curse words) or Ryan's new sidekick Tyler Kruze discussing everything mentioned in previous comments and more. If Clear Channel wants to have the type of radio station that appeals to those who enjoy the vulgarity, then they have every right to. HOWEVER, that should not be the same radio station that promotes the Cancer Campaign for Kids or Toys for Tots or Coats for Kids. We all have the right of Freedom of Speech and no one is forcing us to listen to any radio station we don't like. It is up to those that dictate what is aired on those radio stations to realize that there is a line that needs to be drawn. If you promote family-friendly activities, then you should be family-friendly yourself.
