710 KNUS receives backlash from families of victims
By Saja Hindi | The Denver Post
A conservative Denver talk show radio host’s show was canceled Wednesday after he wished “for a nice school shooting” while speaking on air — a comment that brought a quick backlash from families of Colorado shooting victims.
“All right, Chuck Bonniwell, Julie Hayden here, a little after 1:30, talking about the never-ending impeachment of Donald Trump,” host Chuck Bonniwell said on his show Tuesday, chuckling. “You know you wish for a nice school shooting” to interrupt the impeachment news, he said, as his co-host jumped in, decrying the statement.
“Don’t even — don’t even say that. No, don’t even say that,” Hayden said. “Don’t call us. Chuck didn’t say that.” As he laughed, Bonniwell continued, “– which no one would be hurt.”
