In response to today’s Deadspin post, this is important

August 28, 2013 | Glenn Clark

Those of you who heard yesterday’s interview (with Denver talk show host Vic Lombardi) know very well I did not make any sort of disparaging comment or light of the tragic Aurora shooting. Instead, I alluded to it in hopes of getting my interview subject to understand the gravity of the murder and crime jokes he was making about Baltimore-a place where there have been 150 murders this year alone.

Nothing about murder has or ever will be funny. Deadspin commented on my allusion to the tragedy without context (which is understandable considering how stupid the entire chat was). It has lead to me being troubled by the thought that ANYONE might actually think I truly made some sort of joke. I did not. Unfortunately, the insinuation that I did will mean that what has otherwise been fun radio/social media silliness will likely have to end.

    I heard your interview yesterday evening. It was pretty clear you were not trying to make a joke over the Aurora tragedy.

    You should both be embarrassed for the “radio/social media silliness.”

    Knucklehead Nestor intern can’t stay out of trouble? FREDTERP

    I can never unlisten to those ridiculous radio segments. WOW! Some of the most unprofessional radio “work” I’ve ever heard of. Has Clark been fired yet?

    You did not have made light of the Aurora incident, but was there really any reason to bring it up? Trying to one up the guy from Denver simply lowered you to his level. Should have just said, “Nice talking to you, good luck next week.”

    My opinion probably means nothing to you. I don’t listen to your show. I used to really enjoy Bob’s show until he was fired. I do listen to the Morning Reaction because Drew comes across as a nice guy (not a know-it-all) who is entertaining and his younger co-host is exceptional, particularly regarding baseball. I tried to listen to your show for a few days in the past but frankly couldn’t listen as you came across as a whiny punk. You may actually be a good guy but that’s the way you come across to at least one person on air.

    I read about the matter on Deadspin and honestly wasn’t surprised that you were involved. You should not have brought up that isolated massive killing by a single nut case that caused so much pain for so many families. And it does not matter if you were trying to be humorous or serious.

    Perhaps you and your boss are happy because you have received national attention for your station and even forced idiots like me to listen to the seven minute argument between two immature punks. So, perhaps it worked in the short-term. But I can assure you that I will never listen to your show because you confirmed my suspicion- you really seem like a young punk (at least your on-air persona).

    Take the high road, man. Life is short. You may find one day that being a good guy is more important than a little stupid fame.

    Good luck.
