News Columnist Jim Carty once again dialed up WTKA this morning in his usual slot. You can hear the full segment here.
Here’s a four minute exchange where host Sam Webb grills Carty over the April Michigan Daily article in which some of the athletes quoted in the academics & athletics scandal claim they were misled by the News columnists:
Webb doesn’t really get anywhere but it’s interesting to hear Webb heat up over it. In the end, Webb pushes on Carty to release tapes of the interviews but per Carty, it’s not going to happen and that was really not his call.
Related: Speaking of Webb, he’s really been doing a nice job on the morning show. While there’s certainly a Michigan bias in the voting, he’s right up there in my poll (on the right sidebar) asking to name the top local sports show. The top 4 have been tight for a while so I’m going to leave it up for a couple more days.
