Eddie Andelman led off his show on WWZN today with an apology to anyone who may have been offended by his comments last week. He said it was an emotional topic that probably shouldn’t have been brought on-air. He said he feels he’s earned some trust with 35 years on radio, and hopes to continue earning that trust for a long time to come. He was clearly hurriedly reading a statement and when finished with it moved onto talking about his family’s experience at Fenway yesterday. Eddie may not have meant to offend anyone, but he did so, and his apology is actually more than was expected from this space. It shows that someone does care what is said on the airwaves of 1510.
