    COMMISSION OF INDIAN AFFAIRS ACCEPTS G105 APOLOGY

    New Partnership Will Promote and Support American Indian Issues



    RALEIGH – Commission of Indian Affairs Chairman Paul Brooks today acknowledged and accepted apologies offered by G105 for derogatory and racially charged remarks made during the April 1 broadcast of the station’s “Bob and the Showgram” and agreed to partner with Clear Channel Communications on future efforts to promote and support issues of importance to North Carolina’s American Indian population.



    “Our meeting today with G105 General Manager Dick Harlow was positive and reflected the educational outreach and cultural acceptance we sought,” Brooks said. “He demonstrated a willingness to open the door to a wide-reaching partnership and was sincere in his apology. He gave us his personal assurance that negative stereotypes of American Indians will not be heard again on G105.”



    Harlow provided the Commission an audio copy of the on-air apology delivered on April 8 by Showgram host Bob Dumas, as his as well own on-air apology, both of which have been linked to the Commission of Indian Affairs website at State of North Carolina - Department of Administration . He said an agreement will be drafted soon regarding the support of American Indian-related education and outreach that will be provided on all four local radio stations owned and operated by Clear Channel Communications.



    Commission Executive Director Greg Richardson described the meeting as “historic” in its scope and spirit of cooperation. Other participants included Chairman Jimmy Goins, Chief of the Lumbee tribe, and Ed Brooks, attorney for the Lumbee Tribe.
