Local Radio DJ’s Twitter Stunt Results in One-Week Suspension

CBS, the parent company of Atlanta’s ratings leader V-103 sent a clear message to one of its radio jocks: “disrespecting their advertisers won’t be tolerated.”

Greg Street, who holds down the 6-10 spot Mon-Sat, was placed on a one-week suspension for taking out his personal grievances against a local promoter in a series of “tweets” on the social networking website Twitter.com over the weekend.

Street’s suspension began on Tuesday (5/26).

    @ Daisy, I hate to admit it, but should not have her own show. She is both boring and corny. V103 really needs to holla at me. LOL

  • Daisy

    Al Roker was at jury duty and was tweeting and took pics of the jury. Who does that? He did not even get in trouble.
    Off Topic, The Cavs did not disappoint last night.

  • Daisy

    @Anna The game was good last night but the Cavs still have to come through on Sat. I will wait until then to get exicited again..lol

  • ReadTheBlog

    I just read that original story. You, Sandra, are a childish individual, and you keep company of the same status.

    THAT MEAN YOU AND YOUR FRIENDS ARE A BUNCH OF KIDS!

    It’s hard for me to watch the game. My pressure can’t take it. I watch the last 6 minutes, but with fouls and time outs it turns into the last 20 minutes. LOL. The Cavs have a lot of work to do.

  • luvly1957

    Sandra the AJC talked somethin bad about you. They basically called you a liar and said your story was untrue and said Street did not get suspended. Then the comments from the people lit ur azz up also. Everybody said that you embellish on your stories(the ones that r true) and then makeup alot of things to get people to come to ur site.

  • Naima

    Crickets, local radio LOL. Don’t y’all got Wendy Williams in ATL now

  • Daisy

    @naima no we do not get wendy williams. Some local radio is ok with me I am not a fan of Gregg street though. Let me go to ajc.com though..lol

  • luvly1957

    @naima we don’t have the radio station but her tv show is suppose to be starting in July. Don’t to much care for her either she tries to put everybody on front and she is to fake.

    @Daisy look in the AJC for 5/27 in the entertainment section.

    Rodney Ho tries so hard to be in the loop.

  • babysoft15

    Did I read this story wrong? Didnt he put the comment up on his Twitter page…you’d think he did it on the radio or something! Sandra I don’t know what he did to you, but DAMN you are going for his NECK!!

    Suspension with pay = Vacation!!!!!

  • http://myspace.com/missjenee MissJenee

    I know Dblaq! WHAT UP DOE! LOL and Greg Street is syndicated. He is in Mississippi and Augusta,GA

  • http://charactercorner.blogspot.com attorneymom

    @ dblaq, I concur. It is more akin to a vacation.

    What U fail to understand is that he damaged the reputation of his station’s biggest advertiser with his childish tweets. As a RN, if I do something while off duty to damage the reputation of my hospital’s biggest financial donor, what do U think the hospital would do to me?

  • http://charactercorner.blogspot.com attorneymom

    @ Sandra, LMAO. Thanks for forgiving me and allowing me to remaind apart of your blog family. I love you like a little sister. ; – )

  • pointhimout

    why didn’t he just come back and say ” I aint got no twitter page?” that’s what everyone else does when shyt hits the fan. now they’re looking for his replacement. sure he’ll be at the annual xmas party. and that’s where he’ll unknowingly meet his replacement–then january 2010, it’ll become official and Greg’s gonna have that look on his face like ‘son of a bytch,’ we just met at the xmas party. move on to something else. you’re only on top for so long.

    i wonder whats his grievance with alex?

    I hear they’re grooming Lil Bankhead to replace him. But please don’t quote me.

  • Daisy

    I just heard Lil Bankhead and I will pass just like I did on Gregg so HOOD!
