Winston Salem, NC - Brian “B-Daht” McLaughlin, the public address announcer for football and basketball games at Winston-Salem State for the last 10 years, will not be back this season.
McLaughlin, a popular morning disc jockey at WJMH-FM’s 102 JAMZ in Greensboro, caused a firestorm in March when he made anti-gay remarks on Twitter about WSSU student Aaron McCorkle, an openly gay candidate for Mr. WSSU, the school’s equivalent of a homecoming king.
McLaughlin, a 2006 WSSU graduate, said he would resign if McCorkle were elected. McCorkle lost the election.
McLaughlin, who had been the school’s PA announcer since his junior year in 2004, apologized after his comments on Twitter. But last month he received a letter from Tonia Walker, the athletics director at WSSU, informing him that he wasn’t going to be retained.
