WBAB jocks apologize for racist bit
Newsday Staff Writer

Under threat of suspension or firing, two WBAB radio hosts Friday
apologized profusely for a fake commercial they aired called "Wetback
Steakhouse," said they would undergo cultural sensitivity training and
channel more of the charitable donations they raise to Latino groups.

John Parise and Roger Luce of the Roger and JP morning show also said
the station would invite Latinos onto its public affairs programs to
discuss issues affecting their community.

The minute-long "ad," which aired several times last week, featured a
narrator imitating a Spanish accent inviting "landscapers" and
"dishwashers" to the "Wetback Steakhouse" in Farmingville to enjoy
dishes such as "the lawnmower - beef with rice and beans."
