ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) _ A Clear Channel spokeswoman says an Anchorage shock-jock duo suspended over a derogatory remark about Alaska Native women are returning to the airwaves Wednesday.
Greg Wood and Chris Wilcox, known as Woody and Wilcox on their popular morning show, were taken off the air April 15 following public outrage over the comment that had Alaskans comparing the disc jockeys to Don Imus.
The two were joking April 9 about what makes someone a real Alaskan, when one of them switched the verbs on an old saying that real Alaskans have urinated in the Yukon river and made love to an Alaska Native woman. The original saying also is offensive to many.
Alaska Natives and others have since canceled advertising with KBFX-FM, a Clear Channel hard rock station that features Wilcox and Wilcox.
Clear Channel is based in San Antonio.
