Bee-otch of the Day honors are awarded Monday through Thursday, Bee-otch of the Week is awarded Friday on



Since 1999, we here at have been opening a can of whoop-ass to determine whose ass needs kicking. Almost every day, we pick the Bee-otch of the Day. Fridays, we choose the Bee-otch of the Week and at the end of the month, it's... you know, the Bee-otch of the Month.

This year, seven individuals and groups all got chosen to be the Bee-otch of the Year. We've determined who gets this (dis)honor by the stats given to us by our Blogspot site where we archive the Bee-otch of the Day and other articles related to (why we still have a website and a Blogspot site hosted by a third party is anybody's guess). But, without further adieu....

7) THE FCC (DecemberIn December, the Federal Communications Commission voted 3-2 to override the Net Neutrality laws passed by President Obama. FCC chair Ajit Pai was a former executive of Verizon and even made a cheesy video telling people that after NN laws would be defeated they could still do whatever they want on the web. Thankfully, Baauer is planning to sue Pai and the FCC for his misuse of "Harlem Shake" in the video. Thanks to the FCC's overruling on NN, the major internet companies such as Comcast, Charter and others are planning to jack up internet prices next year.

6) WALMART (November)
Controversy swirled around the mega-retailer when Gary Joe Ahrns released a video of dozens of shopping carts loaded with items getting ready to be thrown out. The items included milk, cheese, cakes and other items. After the video was released, the chain announced that the purging was due to the store losing power for several hours and dumping all of the refrigerated items was protocol. Of course, none of the employees could have the food. Some say that Walmart dumps food on purpose to jack up prices. Yet, there's starving people everywhere.

In May, it was announced that Sinclair was buying Tribune Broadcasting, including WGN-TV and Radio in Chicago. The news sent shockwaves all throughout the media since SBG is notorious for forcing their political views down their viewers' throats. They force their stations to air garbage like the Terror Alert Desk and right-wing commentaries during their newscasts. Here in Michigan, their assets include northern Michigan NBC station WPBN/7&4 and ABC WGTU 29&8, Flint/Tri Cities' WEYI NBC 25, WSMH Fox 66 and WBSF CW 46 and here in west Michigan, CBS WWMT/3 and CW7, which is on channel 3.2.

4) WKLT (June BOTD 6.15 BOTD 6.21)
The northern Michigan rock station created a stir last Summer when Nate "Smitty" Smith from crosstown rival Rock 105/95-5 was fired. Allegedly, it was because he trashed KLT and their afternoon jock Tom Devitt for ripping his show off while KLT used that clip and mixed it in with an online only segment where he played a comedy song with the word "cunt" repeated over and over. KLT allegedly sent their clip to several of Rock 105/95-5's advertisers who threatened to dump their spots on the station if he wasn't let go. Well, Smitty was indeed let go and word came out that KLT was the one to blame. However, KLT's operator, Jerry Coyne claimed that the story was all wrong. His side of the story was that since his wife was a board member of the Michigan Lottery, she had to report on Smitty bashing KLT to advertisers. But, this story does have a happy ending: Smitty was re-hired by Rock 105/95-5 a few months later and is back to handling afternoons and is now the station's Brand Manager. He'll also be hosting the station's yearly Metallica-a-thon on January 6th; he told me that all the ad spots had been sold out for the 26-hour show.

3) JEFF SEITING (July)The mayor of the small town of Kalkaska, MI near Traverse City was the center of controversy and near-riots that have torn the town apart. He's used his family's downtown landmark, the Hotel Seiting to hang pro-Trump signs and other right-winged paraphernalia. He's even taken to social media, attacking the LGBT crowd, Muslims and pretty much everybody that's not white, straight or Christian. Because of this, many are now boycotting the town of 2,000 and want the mayor to resign.

2) THE REPUBLICAN PARTY (February and April)This year has proven that the Repukes are not all for the middle class. They supported pedophiles like Roy Moore and voted in everything from lowering taxes for the wealthy and almost everything Drumpf wanted. The good news is that thanks to Moore's defeat in Alabama, the Senate only has a majority by one person.



The Donald was Bee-otch of the Month for January, March, August, September and October. Of course, with his 32% approval rating, I've written countless articles regarding the de facto POTUS. And yes, they were well-read by thousands of people. Wanna read them? Visit our Blogspot site.

Major changes for northern Michigan TV viewers



9&10 zaps infomercials for a 4 pm newscast, a probable name change for 32, 
The CW returns over the air and channel 12 reformats
*WWTV 9&10 ADDS NEW 4PM NEWSCAST/YENTA GABBER: The northern Michigan CBS affiliate owned by Heritage Broadcasting is adding a new 4pm newscast/lifestyle talk show called The Four, effective January 8th. The show will be hosted by Michelle Pocock-Dunaway and Charlie Tinker and will feature news and weather mixed in with lifestyle stories. In other words, it will be a lighter newscast than their normal other news programming. As a result of the new show, Ellen will move to 3 p.m. while Let's Make a Deal moves to 10 a.m. back-to-back with The Price is Right. 9&10 had been one of the few CBS affiliates to air LMAD at 3 p.m. The move will replace the one hour of infomercials the station had been airing at 10 a.m. for years. Some had been criticizing 9&10 and sister Fox 32 for their obscene amount of paid programming for years.

*IS FOX 32 GETTING DE-FOXED? If you go to 9&10's website, you'll might notice that WFQX Fox 32 is "Local 32" (we have the logo posted above), which is leading to speculation that the station might be ready to dump Fox. On-air, the station is still known as Fox 32. One piece of speculation is that the Fox affiliation might go to Sinclair, which owns NBC affiliate WPBN/7&4 and ABC WGTU/29&8. WFQX has been a Fox affiliate since the day they signed on, October 6th, 1989. 

*THE CW RETURNS OVER THE AIR UP NORTH: In other WFQX news, apparently beginning in the new year, the station will add The CW to a digital subchannel of theirs. Currently, the station's subchannels include MeTV and ION. The CW was last seen up north over the air some ten years ago on WGTU 29&8's subchannels. However, it was then demoted to cable only due to 29&8 being sold to Barrington Broadcasting, which also owned 7&4 at the time. The new CW subchannel also carries syndicated fare such as MauryJerry Springer and Family Guy.

*MY TV 12 NOW MI TV 12: Several months ago, northern Michigan MyNetworkTV affiliate WLLZ-LP 12 Cedar/Traverse City was sold from long-time owner Bob Naismith to Eric Wotila's Freelancer Broadcasting for $100,000. Now, the station has changed its call sign to WXII-LP (XII is the Roman numeral for 12) and is now using the name "mi TV 12" as its moniker. The station has also added news updates from sister station WMNN-LD "minews 26". WXII also carries Cozi TV in non-prime time hours. It is one of the very few network TV stations in America that still broadcasts in analog.

12.22.17 Hero of the Day: John "The Canuck" Wiechenthal

Bee-otch of the Day honors are awarded Monday through Thursday, Bee-otch of the Week is awarded Friday on


Name: John "The Canuck" Wiechenthal
Age: was 39
Occupation: former radio personality and 911 dispatcher
Last Seen: playing country music favorites up in the heavens
Awarded For: just being an overall good guy 

You know, I wasn't planning on doing any more Bee-otches of the Day or Heroes of the Day for what's left of 2017. I was going to do Bee-otch of the Week, then Bee-otch of the Month and then gradually work on Bee-otch of the Year for next week.

But this morning, I woke up to hear the bad news. There was an accident on Kalamazoo Ave. in Kentwood near 52nd Street where a pickup collided with a car, smashing into a telephone pole. The truck driver survived, but the man driving the car did not.

And that man was one of the most-respected voices on Grand Rapids radio, John "The Canuck" Wiechenthal.

Born in a small remote town in rural Ontario, John moved to the Grand Rapids area when he was young. He was a huge fan of country music and loved B93. He told station personnel that he wanted to work there, and at age 21, he got his wish. John worked at B93 for 19 years, though he found a full-time job with the Ionia County 911 Dispatch Center where he saved countless lives. However, he remained on The Bee, handling weekends and fill-in.

Now, I hate country music with a severe passion, but John loved me to death. Hell, he personally friended me on Facebook and would often reply to my posts. When Kidd Kraddick died and told people that if you worked for WLHT, don't play golf, he responded with "Wow!" When Grand Rapids was rocked with a minor earthquake a few years ago and I criticized the media for their lackluster coverage of it, John told me that he was on the air that afternoon on B93 telling listeners about it and the phone lines lit up like Christmas lights. It seemed to be very rare for a radio station owned by a company with a long history of voicetracked jocks, but it shows that if there's a live body in the studio, people will listen.

John was very down to earth with his listeners and was well-loved by his co-workers at B93 and the Ionia County Dispatch. He was also a loving husband and father to his own daughter and his wife's two children from previous relationships. Even competing radio stations, like WGRD have a picture of John on their front page, expressing their condolences. John's sister even started a GoFundMe page for his widow and children that has now raised over $7,000.

In all, I really hate knowing that a family has lost its father and husband only days before Christmas. I will pray for Raneane and her children plus the people who knew and loved John. But in the end, maybe God needed him more than we did. After all, there are a few country music lovers in Heaven and God needed a DJ for them.

12.21.17 Bee-otch of the Day: Papa John Schnatter

Bee-otch of the Day honors are awarded Monday through Thursday, Bee-otch of the Week is awarded Friday on

Name: Papa John Schnatter
Age: 56
Occupation: founder of a fake pizza chain
Last Seen: Jeffersonville, KY
Bee-otched For: backing down 

Not long ago, we bitchslapped Papa John Schnatter for making stupid comments in regards to NFL players kneeling during the National Anthem. He claims that his chain - the official sponsor of the NFL - has witnessed sales sagging worse than mozzarella since many have been tuning out the NFL for this fact.

Now, Schnatter's comments have caused him to take a step back.

Papa John has announced that he's stepping down as the company's CEO next month in response to his vulgar comments. The company's current COO, Steve Ritchie will take Schnatter's position while Schnatter remains Chairman of the Board. He's the company's biggest shareholder.

Despite the chain apologizing for Schnatter's remarks, company stock is down 13% and 30% since the beginning of the year. Schnatter is known for his ultra-conservative views, cutting pay to his workers and putting the blame on Obamacare and the fact that he's a major supporter to the Tea Party.

He is worth $800 million.

You know, Papa John is a fucking wealthy prick who got rich because his daddy owned a bar and he used its utility room to put in an oven. He never knew what it was like to be black. He doesn't know what it's like to be arrested or pulled over because that person is of color. Fuck, here in Grand Rapids, there was an 11-year-old girl - who wanted to be a cop when she grew up - who was arrested at her house last week. Why? BECAUSE SHE WAS FUCKING BLACK. Sadly, the cops who arrested her won't be reprehended for what they did, though the NAACP has been representing the girl.

Now, I've been hearing about the Carolina Panthers being up for sale because owner Jerry Richardson admitted to being a racist and sexually misusing women. I've heard that Jay-Z and other rappers are interested in buying the team and even hiring Colin Kaepernick as the QB. Hell, the Cleveland Browns - in their 0-14 glory - could be a perfect fit for him.

The thing is, when a black man says something, he should be heard. This is one big reason why I don't do business with Papa John's. Hell, even though he stepping down as CEO, he still owns most of the company and it doesn't mean much. Thanks, but I like Jet's better.

Life is short, eat better pizza. Sauce and string cheese on cardboard don't count.

12.20.17 Bee-otch of the Day: Donald Trump

Bee-otch of the Day honors are awarded Monday through Thursday, Bee-otch of the Week is awarded Friday on

Name: Donald Trump
Age: 71
Occupation: old rich white man
Last Seen: Washington, DC
Bee-otched For: making the destruction of America a reality 

Appearing on the White House front lawn today, Drumpf and his cronies were celebrating their pet tax plan's passing. They were all telling the press that it will jump start the economy and put more money into the pockets of the middle class. As a matter of fact, when news broke about both the House and Senate passing the bill, AT&T announced that some 200,000 employees will get a $1,000 bonus in February. I think that Drumpf's FCC vetoing net neutrality rules also played a role.

Of course, the Repukes were all telling everybody that people will be getting more money in their checks come February, but it somewhat reminded me when Dubya was giving people stimulus packages to help the economy many years ago. Then again, the economy - unlike today - was beyond terrible because of his tax plan and gas prices were over $4 per gallon. As we all know, the economy backfired because of Bush's tax plan and it took Obama to fix it.

Now, the economy is back on track and the Dow has risen 5,000 points all in one year. Then again, it's all because we're still under Obama's aegis. Now that Drumpf's pet tax bill has passed, expect all hell to break loose sooner or later. This tax plan will fuck over Obamacare and will steal BILLIONS from Medicare as well. New York Senator Chuck Schumer even stated that the GOP tax plan cements them as the party of the wealthy.

Ya gotta love the GOP and Drumpf. They get a whole bunch of dimwitted idiots to vote for them or else their paychecks would be going to the niggers in Detroit and in the end, they have to realize that they and those who aren't as fortunate are in it together. Black people are bad, so they oughta give that money to a fat cat who's had the whole world handed to them. Stupid.

The more I think of it, the more I think 2018 will be the end of the Republican Party as we know it. It's time to clean house and get rid of those who stand more with the 1% than the rest of us. Drumpf is not saving America, he's killing it.

There's a reason why Obama won the Nobel Peace Prize, ya know?

12.19.17 Bee-otch of the Day: The Republican Party

Bee-otch of the Day honors are awarded Monday through Thursday, Bee-otch of the Week is awarded Friday on

Name: The Republican Party
Age: 163
Occupation: right-winged assclowns
Last Seen: Washington, DC
Bee-otched For: seeing their joy not last long

Today, the GOP was about ready to pop the champagne and deliver themselves a toast to the fact that the middle class is about to get fucked royally while their people were going to get a little richer.

But then, reality hit.

The ballyhooed tax plan that the GOP's been trying to pass for a long time was going to the senate tonight and then to Drumpf's desk. But thanks to some rules in regard to the tax codes and procedures, the bill became null and void. So, the whole damn thing will be redone with revisions and the bill is expected to pass tomorrow.

Many have argued that the GOP tax plan will do nothing but help the wealthy since they will see the biggest reductions in their taxes and the corporate tax will be severely reduced, too. Meanwhile, tax credits for homeowners would be eliminated and those who live in areas with expensive homes but make crappy wages will see their bills go up.

Sadly, the GOP and taxes are two things that don't mix. Every time they fuck up the tax system, BOOM, the economy goes into the shitter. Look at how Dubya squandered the tax system by giving tax cuts to the wealthy. By the end of the 2000s, we were in one of the worst recessions in decades. Same thing will happen to Drumpf and his tax legacy.

I cringe when I hear that the GOP tax cuts will "jump start the economy" plus the fact that some people are thanking Drumpf for the massive gains in the stock market. The reality is, is that all that's because of Obama. Wait and see. By Election Day next year, this country will start to feel the real effects of the Drumpf administration. This could be 2008 all over again, maybe even worse.

But once again, don't look at me. I didn't vote for the guy.

12.18.17 Bee-otch of the Day: Warner Bros.

Bee-otch of the Day honors are awarded Monday through Thursday, Bee-otch of the Week is awarded Friday on

Name: Warner Bros.
Age: 94
Occupation: movie giant
Last Seen: Burbank, CA
Bee-otched For: shooting their eye out

It's never a good idea to take a dump on the Mona Lisa.

In 1974, TV distributor National Telefilm Associates made a clerical error on its renewal for the copyright of "It's a Wonderful Life". As a result, the film fell into public domain and NTA no longer received royalties from the Jimmy Stewart classic. So, in the mid-80s, they decided to do something that pissed off some, but others thought that it was kinda cool: they colorized the film.

Yep! Nothing like using good 'ol 1980s digital technology to make a mint condition film look totally gaudy, just so they can try to lure the generation raised on color television into their grasp. True, one can set their TV to black and white, but why ruin a classic?

Now, it's "A Christmas Story"'s turn. No, the film was not colorized, though it's already in color. But its owner still had the audacity to wreck the 1983 classic.

When it was released 34 years ago, 'ACS' was only a modest hit at the box office, making $19 million (about $47 million in today's dollars). However, it grew a cult following over the years thanks to home video and showings on cable. In 1986, the film, with other MGM films were sold to billionaire Ted Turner who ended up selling out to Time Warner in 1996. In 1997, cable network TNT decided to show 'ACS' for 24 hours on Christmas Day and in recent years, both TNT and TBS have devoted to showing the film in a 24-hour marathon.

True, one could blast the two channels for cramming in commercials and even speeding up the film to air more ads, but sadly, Warner has gone too far. So far, that what they did was more idiotic than sticking your tongue on a frozen flagpole.

On Sunday, "A Christmas Story - LIVE!" aired on the Fox Network. It was supposed to be a revamped version of the classic Christmas movie, but sadly, it was a fucking abortion. It was a musical and the songs were pretty fucking annoying. I knew it was in trouble when it opened up with a song by the ironically-named Bebe Rexha singing some dope-ass tune about Christmas. It seemed that the special had a song every two minutes. It was enough for my TV to be muted most of the time.

Matthew Broderick played the narrator for the special, but he was no Jean Shepherd. As a matter of fact, I wonder if Mr. Shepherd - who died in 1999 at age 78 - is spinning in his grave right now.

The sad thing is that I love SNL but Maya Rudolph, Ana Gasteyer and Fred Armisen couldn't save this disaster. Plus, from what I've heard, the Chinese men during the "turkey dinner" portion weren't even saying "rah rah rah" like they did in the original. As a matter of fact, that, plus making Flick a black kid showed how PC they really wanted to make this new 'ACS'.

The point is, the night before, I decided to watch the original. Now, I have to see it again to wash out any trace of this disaster from my brain, and it's going to take more than Lifebouy or worse, bleach.

Yes, it's always nice to see a revamped version of a classic. But in the case of 'ACS', they needed to leave it alone. The original is enough. Making the story into a dopey musical just ruins the essence of Shepherd's storytelling. But sadly, since Warner owns the rights, they can do whatever they wanted to do with it.

Whoever green lighted this disaster must be a real Scut Farcus.

12.14.17 Bee-otch of the Day: The FCC

Bee-otch of the Day honors are awarded Monday through Thursday, Bee-otch of the Week is awarded Friday on


Name: Federal Communications Commission
Age: 83
Occupation: fun destroyers
Last Seen: Washington, DC
Bee-otched For: creating the end of a free internet

Oh, sweet internet, we will miss you.

Today, the FCC voted 3-2 to overthrow former President Obama's edict that prohibited internet service providers from barring customers from going to websites they don't like. What this means is that your ISP now has the right to make sure that you can't go to certain websites, or even throttle the speed of the site itself or worse, charge you extra to go to your favorite sites (like this one).

Net Neutrality has been an issue since the 2000s when some phone companies frowned on people using VOIP services to make calls. However, the FCC told them to stop. Same with P2P sites.

Of course, FCC Chairman Ajit Pai is a former Verizon exec, and that company is now applauding the FCC's decision since they can now charge you more to go to certain sites or even throttle your speed. It's like watching Netflix and it buffers all the time. Or worse, let's say that you already have a Netflix subscription and yet, your ISP redirects you to Hulu instead.

Folks, this shit wouldn't have happened if last year's presidential election got all fucked up. Trump got a bunch of big business ass-kissers into his cabinet and now, kiss your internet goodbye. The good news is that Massachusetts Senator Ed Markey (D) is coming up with a bill that might overthrow the FCC's idiotic rules. Now with one less Repuke in the Senate, this bill might be easy to pass. Remember, the FCC's stupid rules have been overturned before. Remember Janet Jackson's nip slip? The FCC tried to fine "fleeting expletives" but that got shot down.

The sad thing is that every time we have a conservative in the White House it seems, the FCC gets worse. When Reagan was president, the Fairness Doctrine was killed, allowing radio stations to air right-winged hate talk 24/7. When Clinton was president, Telecom 96 was passed, allowing radio companies like Clear Channel and Cumulus to buy up almost virtually every radio station they wanted. Of course, the joke was on them because both companies are now billions in debt. Of course, the Janet Jackson incident was under Dubya's watch, but guess what? Nothing really happened under Obama. Hell, the only broadcaster that got slapped with a Notice of Apparent Liability was a TV station that accidentally showed a pornographic website when they did a news story about a firewoman who was also a porn star.

I agree that it's sad that it's not even a year since Drumpf became president and look where we're at, folks. Environmental laws are being scaled back, The wealthy are getting a tax break while the working stiffs are now paying more and now, this. If Drumpf is still president by 2020, expect this country to be flying Russian flags.

But don't look at me, I didn't vote for the guy.

12.13.17 Bee-otch of the Day: Roy Moore

Bee-otch of the Day honors are awarded Monday through Thursday, Bee-otch of the Week is awarded Friday on


Name: Roy Moore
Age: 70
Occupation: former judge
Last Seen: Alabama
Bee-otched For: failing

Hard to believe it, but there's smart people in Alabama after all.

Yesterday's nail-biting election had Democrat Doug Jones beating the controversial former judge with a slim margin, 49.9% to Moore's 48.4%. It was almost a split decision, but the truth was that a pedophile has no place in the Senate and the people of traditionally conservative Alabama have spoken.

Yes, Moore had his supporters, such as talk radio assholes like Mark Levin and Laura Ingraham, game show legend Chuck Woolery, badass wannabe Chuck Norris and yes, Drumpf. There were some churches that supported Moore as well, but in the end, good triumphs evil.

The real loser here is none other than Drumpf himself, since the Repukes will be losing a seat in the Senate. The funny thing, too is the fact that Alabama's one of the friendliest states for Drumpf with a 48% approval rating. However, in all fairness, he also has a 48% disapproval rating to boot.

With a 32% approval rating nationwide, Drumpf's reign of terror might not last too much longer. And if he's not impeached or imprisoned by next year, we'll start seeing the Ds replace the Rs in both the House and Senate. Already, the Rs barely have a majority in the Senate and some of the moderates are starting to act more like the Dems if they want to maintain their seats next year.

So, that's it for Roy Moore, an asshole who hid behind The Ten Commandments and his religion. The truth is, yes, all shall forgive, but his victims won't. Even though he lost by only 20,715 votes, the people of Alabama have spoken and they don't want a sexual offender representing their state.

Goodbye, you fake asshole. And the horse you rode in on.

Owner of 16 radio stations with former Howard Stern programmer in jail for drunk driving

The man who co-owns many radio stations in Michigan's upper peninsula is in a Charlevoix County jail for 270 days for drunk driving.

William Curtis Gleich, who owns Sovereign Communications with a name familiar with us Howard Stern fans, Tim Sabean, was arrested in November for his third offense of drunk driving. He will also serve 36 months probation and pay $2858 in court fees. 

Sovereign's properties include stations in Sault Ste. Marie such as CHR Yes 99.5, Rock 101 and full-serve 1230 WSOO and Marquette's 93/94 Rock, Big Country 92.3 and full-serve 680 WDBC, a station whose 10,000 watt signal gets out a ways.

I've had the privilege of meeting Mr. Gleich a few times several years ago at the St. Ignace Auto Show, along with the staff of his stations. He was a stand-up guy and very fun to talk to. It's heartbreaking that when he was busted for drunk driving his first two times, he didn't learn his lesson. Now that he's going to be in jail well into the new year, I hope that he will sober up and get his life back in order. Drinking and driving do not mix.

12.7.17 Bee-otch of the Day: The Republican Party

Bee-otch of the Day honors are awarded Monday through Thursday, Bee-otch of the Week is awarded Friday on



Name: The Republican Party
Age: 153
Occupation: right-winged assholes
Last Seen: Washington, DC
Bee-otched For: not doing the right thing

Today was a bittersweet day in the world of politics and comedy.

Former SNL comic and Minnesota senator Al Franken announced that he's resigning over the allegations brought on by several women that he assaulted them. In a speech today on Capitol Hill, he said that it was a shame that he's leaving while there's a sexual assaulter in the Oval Office, plus the fact that the Republicans are embracing a pedophile in Alabama.

OK, so Franken is a sick man and probably needs help. But what he did is NOTHING comparing to what Drumpf and Roy Moore did in the past. It is a shame that Franken, who up until the allegations broke out was one of the best senators in the US has now seen his star fade into oblivion.

The Dems made the right decision to step away from Franken, so why can't the Repukes do the same to Moore and Drumpf? Plus, why do they defend them? IMHO, it might be the simple gesture of forgiveness. Yes, The Bible preaches it, but the thing is, it does not erase the scars of the past. Moore and Drumpf's victims should be upset that the two are very powerful and use their positions in life to get what they want. True, nobody's above the law, even the president. This means that even if you're the Commander in Chief, keep your damn hands to yourself.

All I can say is that when there's a special election in Minnesota, they'll vote for a candidate that's not some right-winged whack job that's in line with Drumpf. Minnesotans know better. America does need change, but not the one Drumpf is leading us to.

Minnesotans need somebody who's good enough, smart enough, and doggone it, people - er, never mind.

12.6.17 Bee-otches of the Day: Orin Harris and Holly Jane Kusserow-Smidt

Bee-otch of the Day honors are awarded Monday through Thursday, Bee-otch of the Week is awarded Friday on



Names: Orin Harris and Holly Jane Kusserow-Smidt
Ages: 76, 63
Occupations: former broadcaster and teacher
Last Seen: Forest City, IA
Bee-otched For: being a bunch of racist assholes

You know, I love radio stations that STILL have a local staff.

Many stations - including here in Grand Rapids - rely on voicetracking and cyberjocking to save a few bucks on having locals behind the mic. iHeartMedia stations here in Beer City, USA - especially WSNX - are probably the biggest culprits.

However, sometimes, live and local jocks can be downright assholes.

Take Orin Harris and Holly Jane Kusserow-Smidt, who formerly worked at KIOW/Mix 107.3 in Forest City, IA. Harris broadcasted basketball games while Kusserow-Smidt - an elementary school teacher during the day - board-opped during the games.

A week ago Tuesday, the two were working a game between Forest City and nearby Eagle Grove. During a commercial break, the two discussed three players on the opposing Eagle Grove team who happened to be Hispanic. They made racist comments about the high school players and Harris even said "go back to where you came from!"

Although the comments did not go over the air at KIOW, a full-service radio station that covers northern Iowa that plays mostly adult contemporary, the comments were heard on Facebook Live. Needless to say, the two's comments did not go over well with the locals. As a result, the two were fired from KIOW and Kusserow-Smidt was put on paid leave. In a statement, Harris apologized for the comments, and since he was going to retire next year, he's upset that it had to end that way.

Well, duh! What a bunch of fucked up, backwoods assholes. People should be judged by TALENT, not their skin color. It was right for KIOW to can the two and I hope whomever replaces them does a better job. If that kind of racism speaks about the people of that small town in Iowa, remind me to stay the hell away from there.

Maybe those two hicks should go back to where they came from.
