RADIO WARS: Black Lives Matter Pennsylvania Is Meeting with 97.5 on Friday

Asa Khalif, the lead organizer of Black Lives Matter Pennsylvania, who earlier this month put a white hood on the Frank Rizzo statue in Center City, will meet with 97.5’s program director, Matt Nahigian, on Friday over “Dwayne From Swedesboro,” according to a source close to the movement. Khalif is seeking a suspension and race sensitivity training for Pat Egan, the person said. Otherwise, Khalif, who wants the Rizzo statue thrown in the Schuylkill and thinks Dwayne sounded like an “ignorant motherfucker,” plans to escalate things with a larger scale protest as early as Monday if his request goes unheeded. MARCHING BEATS:

          If them midget punks(Jason Myrtetus & Pat Egan) aren’t suspended indefinitely, then 97.5 should be stripped of their radio license.

          Tired of these suburban punks on air with their veiled racism, getting a pass in this town.

      Really, this is what BLM cares about? Everything is going to far – who cares that they created a fake caller! Really, who gives a shit. People need to get over themselves and get jobs. What does Asa Khalif, do for a living? Maybe the way he makes a difference is if he becomes a police officer? How about is Asa, you want to take a stand? Go fight crime.

    Unfortunately Pat Egan is going to be the fall guy unless he outs Missanelli as having known about the fakery. No way Miss didn’t know that it was a fake caller for over 2 years. He and management are the real problem over there!

      Mike Miss works as little as possible. He’s on auto-pilot at this point. He doesn’t show up 2-3 hours before his show to talk about that day’s layout. He shows up at 1:55 and leaves at 6:05, guaranteed. If you had to guess which host had this done to him, you’d guess him 10 outta 10 times. I can see Pat Egan literally sitting behind him in another room and talking as Dwayne, while everyone in the office laughs and leaves Mike out of the loop. I’m sure he’s the old guy at work people just like fucking with because they like getting him riled up. They probably put salt in his sugar dispenser or change his monitor background to a bunch of dicks.

      I don’t think it’s unheard of that he had absolutely no idea…if anything, it as more for Egan’s co-workers that the gag went on as long as it did.

    Good, I hate Black Lives Matter, because ALL LIVES MATTER. But MM has to get a suspension here for 1) allowing this to go on for two years (there is 0 chance he did not know about this), and 2) lying about not knowing about it, and allowing the Eagan and Myrtetus to take the fall for it! He is a bold face liar. Remember the Victor Cruz incident when he celebrated that VC had blew his knee out? Then backtracked for days about, i didnt even see the play….f ucking liar man… Something about that pretentious D-bag that make want to bitch slap him.

    Egan has easy legal action against 97.5 if he gets canned. Management was fully behind him in this.. at least his immediate supervisor.

    Assuming Matt N didn’t know, Myrt is the most responsible, but really Matt and Jason should be suspended.

    What’s amazing is hearing Jason on the air the other day, and you could tell he had no clue that it was possibly offensive/racist.

    Reply
    • Jackie Puppet August 25, 2016 at 10:34 am

      And Matt N was smart enough not to go on the record that he knew about while Myrt did like a fool. Myrt and Egan will take the fall for sure.

    Management all have families, it’s crazy that they all are risking their jobs, lively hood, and reputations by backing Pat Egan to the wall. He’s a true phony, with dozens of fake Twitter accounts and personas, who holds everyone else accountable for his own shortcomings. Someone so miserable as himself that he has to pretend to be other people just to function in society, And protecting him is a top priority for Nahigian, Myrtetus, Camille, and Missanelli. Can we take Jason’s Conicelli Nissan car away now? Can BLM visit their dealerships to remind them who they are trading ads for leases with? Is Beasley watching any of this? Are these the people they want to continue carrying their flag? Black Marks Matter, especially when these bozos go looking for another job.

    97.5 did this to themselves, all they had to do when the story came out was handle it like professionals. Suspend some people, make a strong statement, maybe start a small scholarship fund for minoroties who study or want to study communications, etc.. Instead they doubled down like fools and went with the “no big deal” unless you were offended by it, and Kyle’s a bitter clown. Now these blm fools can make sponsors nervous which means potentially harsher ramifications and them taking more hits in the press.
