LA Radio Host Questions the Character of Larry Elder

Los Angeles radio host Dominique DiPrima is raising questions about California gubernatorial candidate Larry Elder’s character.

The First Things First host on KBLA Talk 1580, Los Angeles’ first Black-owned talk radio station, played a clip from one of Elder’s shows during the OJ Simpson murder trial in 1995.

In a Facebook post, the station said the audio proves that Elder made disparaging comments about “African Americans” and freely tossed around “the N-word to the enjoyment of a presumably Caucasian audience.”

Elder, a conservative Republican, is vying to become the state’s first Black governor.

“I was really disturbed by the news that the recall election is almost 50-50,” DiPrima said. “The leading candidate to replace Gov. Gavin Newsome is talk radio host Larry Elder, someone who I had my own personal encounter with when I first came to Los Angeles and first started doing talk radio.”

Last week, Elder sued California’s Secretary of State after she excluded him from the list of 41 candidates in the recall election.

During her monologue Thursday, DiPrima did not mince words when she talked about Elder’s negative impact on the minority community.

“The vitriol, the racism that I heard on talk radio in the city made my hair stand on edge, “she said. “I invited some folks on my show to talk about, Larry Elder was one of them.”

Longtime Detroit reporter Kevin Dietz has been named full-time host at NewsTalk 760 WJR, he revealed on Twitter. Dietz has been hosting WJR Late Mornings since Frank Beckmann retired six months ago. 

“I took a pretty cool new job! Working 9-noon Monday -Friday on WJR 760,” he said. “I remember JP McCarthy as a kid on this station! I am blessed.”

The Emmy award-winning investigative reporter spent nearly 30-years at Detroit NBC affiliate WDIV before he was fired in 2019 for making an alleged racial comment about another reporter.

“The station has a zero-tolerance policy on racially insensitive comments, and they determined, despite the intent and context of my statement, that it violated the policy,” he said at the time.

Dietz garnered 17 Emmy awards in 26 years at WDIV. He began his career in Traverse City, Michigan in 1988.

WJR has not revealed if Dietz will continue hosting the show alone or if a co-host will be brought in.
