Sean Hannity Controversy in SB Independent

Sean Hannity Controversy Covered by SB Indy (CLICK TO ENLARGE)

Sean Hannity has often credited KCSB with launching his media career when the station management removed him from the air in 1989 for making “multiple discriminatory statements based on sexual orientation” on his weekly KCSB radio show in “violation of the University of California Nondiscriminatory policy.”

Hannity has always denied that he was homophobic.

This coming Thursday, December 22nd, from 10am-12noon, tune in to KCSB’s retrospective program “50 Years of People Powered Radio,” which pulls from the station’s rich audio archive, to hear the material which led up to Hannity’s removal, as well as recollections and commentary from Prof. Richard Flacks and Elizabeth Robinson.

Judge for yourself.
