ZOOMERMEDIA APOLOGY ON AIRING OF FORD COMMENTS ACCEPTED BY TORONTO STAR REPORTER DANIEL DALE

The following statement was released on Wednesday evening by ZoomerMedia, which owns The New AM 740 and The New Classical 96.3FM:

“We are pleased to see that Mayor Ford has responded to the libel allegations by Mr. Dale by offering a full apology and retraction of his comments. We have always believed that this was primarily a matter between Mr. Dale and Mr. Ford. However, we sincerely regret the part ZoomerMedia played in broadcasting the offending words spoken by Mr. Ford, and apologize for that. We can confirm that those words will never again be broadcast on any of our television outlets or websites.”

This statement was sent out in general release late last night. Soon after it was issued, Daniel Dale said he would not pursue legal action against ZoomerMedia and said “I appreciate Zoomer’s statement.”
