WRMC Hosts Apologizes for Offensive Commentary

To the Editor:

Towards the end of Winter Term, we, Andrew Zrike and John Joy, were on WRMC, Middlebury's radio station, hosting a two-hour show along with a few friends. During this time, a few comments were made that deeply offended a member of the Middlebury College community. She voiced her concerns to us, the hosts of the show, and we immediately issued a public apology on the air. Her call made us realize that our earlier comments were in poor taste and hurtful to a large portion of the potential audience. As Middlebury College disc jockeys we have the responsibility to represent Middlebury College and ourselves. On this particular day we represented both in a negative manner. For this we are deeply sorry. In the future we will certainly censor our comments and adhere to a higher standard.
