RI Governor Breaks Talk Radio Silence

Rhode Island Governor Lincoln Chafee ended his talk radio silence appearing on the Dan Yorke Show Thursday afternoon on 630 AM WPRO, Providence.

The appearance marked his first visit to WPRO since the Governor declared a talk radio ban at the inception of his administration.

"I was driving on the Wampanoag Trail and I thought I'd come in and get my chops busted", the Governor joked upon his arrival.

Mr. Chafee insists the ban, that drew national attention, was meant to allow his administration time to get its feet on the ground in preparing this year's budget. He called the characterization of his administration's silence a miscommunication which he took responsibility for.

The Governor also said his comments calling for advertisers to pull their ads from talk radio were not directed at WPRO, but rather at national programs.
