+++ t+++S+ ++ ,+ (Formerly LA GAZZETTA del MASSACHUSETTS) VOL. 116 - NO. 33 BOSTON, MASSACHUSETTS, AUGUST 17, 2012 $.30 A COPY 23 rd Annual N,00th End Family Pride Week in Memory of Robert "Bobby D" DeCristoforo by Sol Giarratani Jeff Katz Versus Beth Childs I usually listen for a while every morning to the Jeff Katz radio show on Talk 1200 Boston. Recently, he had Beth Childs on as a guest. She is running in the Republican primary for Barney Frank's old U.S. House seat. Her main opponent is Sean Bielat who ran and nearly defeated Frank two years ago. I have known Childs for near 25 years and I thought Katz's treatment of her on the show was quite disrespectful. I know he likes Bielat but he shouldn't have been treating Childs like a hostile witness under cross examination. She handled herself well though and came across as a good GO.P candidate. The GOP winner will take on Joe Joe Joe Kennedy in the November election. Speaking of Katz and Severin Too It appears reportedly that TALK 1200 Boston has let conservative talkers Jeff Katz and Jay Severin go. Andy Dean will replace Katz in the morning and Sean Hannity moves to the 3:00 pm slot. Rush Limbaugh will be taking his show back to WRKO to fill their noon time slot. Also, at WRKO Michele McPhee will co-host the morning show with Todd Feinberg. Severin will remember his first anni- versary at TALK 1200 as his last. I wonder if Beth Childs will be sending Jeff a get well card for getting booted off the air after the way he recently treated her on the air during an interview.
