Handel apologizes again for remarks
KFI-AM (640) radio talk show host Bill Handel issued another on-air apology for remarks made during a May 13 broadcast in which he and other producers suggested authorities â€œget rid ofâ€ Armenians, particularly in Glendale, in order to alleviate an over-burdened health-care system.
During the course of the banter, the show’s board operator, Lara Hermanson, said, â€œWhat the Turks started, Bill will finish.â€ Hermanson and Handel issued apologies during the morning broadcast Friday. Handel also reaffirmed his support for official recognition of the Armenian Genocide.
