  1. BJ’s show is crsp! BJ is crap! He was sued for sexual harassment when he was
    at 100.7 in Seattle. BJ was part of the Morons that worshiped and mucked it up with Tom Lykis. Remember that sleezball! I will be removing the KZOK presets on my radio.

    1. FACT CHECK:
      BJ Shea was NOT sued for sexual harassment.

      A longtime Seattle radio host has sued her employer on charges of gender discrimination and creating a hostile work environment because of the behavior of another on-air host at the station.
      Robin Erickson, morning co-host on talk station KQBZ-FM (100.7), filed the suit in King County Superior Court against Entercom Seattle LLC, which operates The Buzz and six other stations in Seattle.
      Although the suit names Entercom as the defendant, the suit is focused on B.J. Shea, who appears on The Buzz right after the show co-hosted by Erickson and longtime radio partner John Maynard.
      Shea, who was NOT named as a defendant, declined comment.
      The Buzz’s promotional slogan is “Radio for Guys,” and the suit contends that that is part of the problem.
      “The Shea program specifically targets a young male audience,” Erickson’s suit says.
      “The Shea program regularly features verbal attacks on women. These attacks repeatedly and crudely attack women in general and specifically in the workplace, claiming, among other assertions, that women are bad employees whose presence in the workplace is bad for men.”
      The suit contends that Shea specially mocked Erickson “on the basis of her gender and age” on the air in August. On-air attacks resumed after Shea was disciplined, it adds.
      Among other allegations: Shea promoted the nationally syndicated Howard Stern show (which runs on another Entercom station, KISW-FM, at the same time as Robin & Maynard); he criticized another female Entercom employee on the air; station management retaliated against Erickson for filing complaints and complaining that inadequate disciplinary measures had been imposed.
      As an example, the suit notes that the Robin & Maynard and B.J. Shea shows share a studio. Shea’s staff, the suit says, posted signs on the wall including one reading “All Women are Filthy Lying Whores.” When Erickson asked station managers to remove the offensive signs, managers removed almost all materials, an action “intended to cause hostility by other employees” toward her, it says.
      The suit seeks unspecified damages for “emotional distress, anxiety, humiliation and embarrassment” as well as medical and legal expenses.

      ***In other words, Shea upset the delicate sensibilities of Robin Erickson. That’s all!
      Not all women are filthy lying whores, some are just bitchy cunts.

  2. From seeing the studios, looks like BJ is going from very luxurious, elaborate, well staffed, supportive, creative in appearance along with a fantastic view of the Seattle skyline to a table with microphones attached to it that are shared between multiple stations. Wonder how that will effect his on -air performance and show quality. How many requests will he make that were the norm and provided at KISW that won’t be at KZOK. Sarah is always good on the air, but she was even better back when they were at CBS and the station had a full staff through the day. Time will tell.
