John DePetro: 16 to Watch in 2016 in RI
Tuesday, December 29, 2015
WPRO’s parent company, Cumulus, has been the subject of speculation of major financial distress. The union-led group For Our Daughters has recently revamped its effort to get DePetro fired.
DePetro has always proven himself to be a Timex — he takes a licking and keeps on ticking, whether the subject of a station suspension or firing, or a harassment suit. DePetro, who’s won AP awards for his show, countered the latest move by For Our Daughters to oust him.
“I host a very popular, successful ,daily talk show where I allow the public to speak out on current events in the news," said DePetro. "The content of my show is family friendly, and I speak with people of all ages and backgrounds. Once again, a group of union supporters and other ultra liberal individuals, have targeted me in an attempt to silence me.”
