    Default Impeachment Is So Boring “You Wish for a Nice School Shooting,” Says KNUS Denver Radio Host. UPDATE: Chuck & Julie Show Canceled Due To Comment

    From The Colorado Times Recorder:


    Impeachment Is So Boring “You Wish for a Nice School Shooting,” Says Denver Radio Host


    Denver radio host Chuck Bonniwell began a segment of his afternoon radio show Tuesday (12/17/19) by lamenting the “never-ending impeachment of Donald Trump,” and then saying, “You know, you wish for a nice school shooting to interrupt the monopoly.”

    “No, don’t even say that! Don’t call us! Chuck didn’t say that,” said Julie Hayden, who’s Bonniwell’s co-host on the KNUS 710-AM show.

    I called anyway, and Hayden told me Chuck regretted the comment.

    “It was something he immediately wished he hadn’t said,” Hayden told me.

    Bonniwell hasn’t apologized on air yet, but immediately after Hayden’s response to his comment, he told his audience that he meant shootings in “which no one would be hurt.”

    Bonniwell’s comment came as KNUS is facing accusations that a staffer is a Nazi. KNUS Management is reportedly conducting an internal investigation. and the producer has denied posting pro-Nazi comments on social media. The results have not been announced.

    Bonniwell, who publishes the Cherry Creek/Glendale Chronicle, has a long track record of comments that draw media scrutiny.

    Last year, during Jared Polis’ successful race to become Colorado’s governor, Boniwell said Polis has the support of the “gay mafia.”

    During the same election, he called state Sen. Faith Winter of Thornton, “an overweight, unpleasant, vicious, amoral human being.”

    A few years ago, Bonniwell told his listeners that Guardian reporter Ben Jacobs, who was body slammed by Rep. Greg Gianforte (R-MT), was a “little jerk” and a “metrosexual.”

    And, since the holiday season is upon us, you might want to know that Bonniwell once said Obama “doesn’t like Christmas.”

    'Nice school shooting' would break up impeachment coverage, KNUS host says; show canceled

    DENVER — A Colorado radio host said this week that a “nice school shooting” might break up the coverage of Pres. Donald Trump’s impeachment hearing. One day later, KNUS 710-AM has canceled "Chuck and Julie."

    “You know, you wish for a nice school shooting to interrupt [it],” Chuck Bonniwell said in a conversation with his co-host Julie Hayden, after describing the impeachment process as “never-ending.”

    Hayden quickly shot down Bonniwell’s comment in their Tuesday afternoon program.

    “No, no. Don’t even – don’t even say that. No, don’t even say that,” she told Bonniwell. “Don’t call us. Chuck didn’t say that.”

    Bonniwell added that he wouldn’t want anyone to be hurt before the conversation moved on with a caller.

    The clip was removed from the podcast as of Wednesday afternoon. 9NEWS downloaded the audio prior to the edit.

    The show wasn't immediately canceled as the show was back 12/18. After the public finding out about the comments more than 24 hours later and contacting the station and advertisers about them, they have canceled the show late Wednesday.

    "Given the history of school violence that has plagued our community, 710 KNUS confirms that an inappropriate comment was made on the Chuck & Julie show by co-host Chuck Bonniwell. A programming decision was made to end the program immediately," station management said in a statement Wednesday night.
