CLEVELAND - Bicyclists are demanding that the nation's largest radio group be punished because disc jockeys at three stations made on-air comments they say encouraged drivers to throw bottles at bike riders or hit them with open car doors. They say the morning show hosts at Clear Channel Communications stations in Cleveland, Houston and Raleigh, N.C., also suggested motorists blast horns at cyclists, and speed past them and slam on their brakes in front of them.This kind of behavior is totally irresponsible from a radio station, let alone three radio stations owned by the same company. It also makes me wonder how this kind of behavior could happen at three different radio stations in such a close time frame? I would encourage people to send an email to Lisa Dollinger, Clear Channel's Senior Vice President, Corporate Communications to express an opinion on this issue.
