Boston Morning Talk Shows Attacks Catholic Church

Billy Costa is the co-host of the morning talk show “Matty in the Morning” he is also the host of the show “TV diner” and “the High school Quiz show” on wgbh channel 2. He on a regular basis makes the joke " I was an alter boy but I am a little hurt that the Priests did not fine me attractive" The host of the show Matt Seigal encourages the joke. I suggest we contact Channel 2 and suggest he may not be an appropriate host for a High school quiz show. I also suggest we contact the sponsors of the other shows.

I called channel 2 today and said

“Hi I am a history teacher and I really enjoy watching “High School Quiz Show” But the host of the show , Billy Costa, is on a morning show making crude comments about Catholic Priests and rude comments about the death about Whitney Houston. I do not feel it is appropriate for the host of a high school game show to be making such comments”
