As mentioned here, Bruce Madej of U-M Media Relations dialed up DeFran’s show yesterday but that audio clip seems to be lost. WTKA is trying to recover it and FWIW, WTKA does a great job of late posting their podcasts). [Update 5/1: the original call is up, can be heard here.]
That said, Madej dialed up the morning show today to reiterate U-M and Dave Brandon’s position here. Here’s Bruce Madej’s unsolicited call into Sam and Ira from this morning:
As I wrote last night, it’s not surprising that someone from media relations would refute a story like this. But it is noteworthy that Madej would bother to call the radio show to personally shoot this down (now TWICE) with the backing of Brandon. Translation: there’s no validity to this and DeFran’s sources are complete bunk. Again.
OK, I think I’m done talking about this unless this site is dragged back into it Here’s my previous posts from this week on DeFranpalooza:
