The owner of WTKK issued a statement saying, “our company has always encouraged a free and open dialogue on a variety of issues and topics, and we will continue to be guided by that principle.”

He goes on to say, “it had become clear at several points in the past two years that JAY was either unwilling or unable to maintain our standards on the air. It’s for that reason we have made the decision to end our relationship.”

Severin had been with WTKK for almost 11 years.
