Six Flags Over Georgia has pulled advertising off rock station Project 9-6-1 after the morning show made “insensitive remarks” about Saturday’s accident regarding the teen-ager getting hit by a roller coaster, according to a Six Flags spokeswoman.
Six Flags spokeswoman Hela Sheth sent an email acknowledging this happened but provided no further details. (She did send the urls below of audioclips from the show.) She didn’t know how long Six Flags would stay off the station. (Six Flags typically advertises fairly heavily in the summer on radio and TV.)
No word from Clear Channel Atlanta Operations Manager Clay Hunnicutt, Project 9-6-1 program director Chris Williams or either “Giant” Brian Carothers or his co-host Shaffee. So I don’t know if there will be any punishment.
The Giant Show offers podcasts of its shows. During yesterday’s show, Shaffee and Giant Brian (right) wondered what the park did with the teen-ager’s head. I’m not sure if that’s the point of contention but judge for yourself here.
