RE: LEO LAPORTE, HOST OF "THE TECH GUY" RADIO SHOW

Dear Ms. Leimgruber,

I wish to inform you of the highly inappropriate sexual indiscretions of one of your broadcasters, Leo Laporte, host of "The Tech Guy" radio show, which is broadcast nationally by Premiere Radio Networks.

In addition to his past indiscretions reported publically by Gawker: (bit.ly/gawker-story-l), and (bit.ly/gawker-story-2), Mr. Laporte continues to tarnish the reputation of iHeartMedia and its subsidiaries by his salacious and markedly perverted behavior on his netcast network TWiT (bit.ly/twit), a network that you allow him to promote on his radio show, and is ironically marketed as "family friendly".

Most recently he briefly exposed a picture of his penis to viewers watching "The Tech Guy" livestream: at the 15-second mark: (bit.ly/totaldrama-video). A more detailed blog post can be found here: (bit.ly/totaldrama-story). Also you may be interested to know that, on the same day, he failed to read a Carbonite "live-read" ad (even after being reminded numerous times) and later joked that his oversight would likely cause the firing of "Nathan", his Premier Radio Networks technical director. Furthermore Mr. Laporte regularly makes fun of his callers in-between breaks, and is demonstrably self-centered. His blatant disregard for the well-being of others and his lack of professionalism is undeniable.

With regards to the disgusting photo, I do understand that mistakes happen, but this was not a one-time mistake. As described above Mr. Laporte has had a history of carelessly exposing his private sex life on the air and making inappropriate sexual remarks towards employees. There is even a YouTube video further illustrating these unfortunate tendencies: bit.ly/leo-laporte-twit-1). He is a serious liability to Premiere Radio Networks and its advertisers. I hope by giving you this information. Premiere Radio Networks will take an appropriate action against Mr. Laporte.

This should not be tolerated by the iHeartMedia broadcast family.

Thank you for your attention into this matter.


Respectfully,

[Your Name Here]

Many, many thanks to the folks at Total Drama for the content of this letter.
