RADIO H0ST WON’T LET GO
Lynn Cullen, a radio talk show host in Pittsburgh, seemingly won’t let go of a story about the length of skirts worn by Catholic schoolgirls. Cullen, who airs on WTAE, spent two hours on January 31 and another three hours on February 3, discussing the subject. Naturally, she had to fill her time with other issues affecting Catholicism.
In a statement to the management of WTAE radio, the league said it was mostly concerned with using the issue of the length of the skirts “as a pretext for an extended diatribe against Catholic institutions.” The league maintained that in doing so, Cullen “was setting herself up for trouble.” We added that “After all, anyone who spends 5 hours on an issue like this obviously has an agenda to feed.”
The league has asked WTAE to explain Cullen’s obsession.
