WEEI goes silent Friday while staff undergoes sensitivity training  1 Month ago

Boston sports radio station WEEI will go off the air for 12 hours Friday for sensitivity training in the wake of recent controversies, including one that led to the suspension of a host after he criticized New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady’s 5-year-old daughter.

“WEEI is in the process of closely reevaluating our policies and procedures in an effort to ensure that our programming is never intolerant or harmful to our listeners or our city,” the station said in a statement. “As part of this effort, WEEI will be hosting an all day mandatory sensitivity training this Friday.”

Host Alex Reimer was suspended indefinitely last month after he called Brady’s daughter, Vivian, an "annoying little pissant.” That led Brady to go on the air before the Super Bowl to say he would “evaluate” whether he would continue his relationship with the station.

Earlier this month, host Christian Fauria was suspended five days for using a racist impression of Don Yee, Brady's agent. Yee is of Chinese descent. Host Kirk Minehane called Fox Sports’ Erin Andrews a "gutless bitch" in 2014. 

WEEI will suspend all live programming from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. Friday so employees can attend the sensitivity training, according to the statement.
