FCC Investigating WPHT's Larry Andersen's Jose Reyes Comments

The FCC is investigating WPHT Phillies announcer Larry Andersen's, "somebody oughta put one in his neck" comment after New York Met Jose Reyes' celebration of a homerun in a recent Mets Phillies matchup.

A source indicates that Jeffrey H. Tignor, Acting Chief of the FCC, has responded to listeners complaints.  The Commission will review carefully to determine whether [the comments] contain sufficient information to suggest that there has been a violation of the obscenity, indecency or profanity laws.

If they determine that a violation has occured - the Enforcement Bureau will start an investigation which could include a letter of inquiry to WPHT.

WPHT has not responded to a request for comment but NY Newsday's Neil Best said to me, "I had not heard that Bob.  I guess I should check your [archive].  I do think that Larry's remarks about Reyes were way over the line."

I will edit if WPHT gets back to me.
