NAACP Reacts to Radio Host's Return

Heather Mathis

JACKSON Tenn.- The Jackson-Madison County Chapter of the NAACP hosted its second meeting Tuesday night, regarding radio host Bill Way's controversial remarks made on his Facebook page.

More than 50 people attended the meeting to voice their concerns.

Way returned to his radio show on News/Talk 101.5, Tuesday morning. Many in the community were unhappy to see him on the clock.

"Mr. Way made a decision as a professional individual so he's got to be held accountable for the decision that he made," said Teresa Trice.

Other residents suggested to the crowd to move on and not dwell on the negative comments. "I think we need to go on stop talking about it," said one person at the meeting. "It will do nothing but waste time and it's not going to change anything."

The Jackson-Madison County Chapter of the NAACP says it will continue to meet until a decision is made on how the group should move forward.
