Ok, being sort of new to the area, I didn’t know that (is this a well known thing to Detroiters?).
Apparently Frank may become well-known for something, it just might not be his preaching. He’s filed a federal lawsuit against Channel 7 to host his evangelical radio program
Experts say the case is a unique one and could be an important test of the protection of religious rights under the Civil Rights Act of 1964.
Wow, a test case for a 1964 law in 2006? Go Frank. (note, that’s not an endorsement of his case, just the general “Way to pick your fight” type of comment.)
Frankly (HA!) I don’t see why it hurts the station. It’s not like there’s going to be a large cross-over audience. If anything, it might bring them more viewers. People still watch Channel 7 despite Steve Wilson’s continued employment.
