    I dont think this was one of them.

    DJ who asked premier her thoughts on being a “MILF” is fired by Courtenay radio station
    Rob Shaw , Times Colonist January 10, 2013

    The radio DJ who asked Christy Clark on air what it was like to be a "MILF" has lost his job.

    ADRIAN LAM, Times Colonist

    A Courtenay radio station has fired the host who asked Premier Christy Clark a sexually charged question on air last month.

    JetFM, a rock radio station that serves the Comox Valley, said it had released Justin (Drex) Wilcomes from his employment contract.

    “We treat employee matters as private and will not comment further, other than to say that this was an internal decision,” the station said in a statement.

    In a mid-December interview, Wilcomes asked the premier, on behalf of a listener, what it’s like to be a “MILF” — a lewd acronym referencing a mother’s sexual attractiveness.

    Clark laughed at the question, and replied that it was better to be a MILF than a cougar — a term that references an older woman on the prowl for a young partner.

    The appropriateness of the question, and Clark’s response, were widely debated in the weeks after the broadcast.

    The premier’s office said Thursday it did not ask for Wilcomes’s termination, nor did it complain about the incident.

    Wilcomes had no comment Thursday when reached by the Times Colonist.

    But he told News 1130 radio in Vancouver that he “did what was expected of me” as an FM radio station host and called the termination an overreaction.

    “I work at a rock station,” News 1130 quoted him as saying in an online story.

    “We do entertainment and comedy interspersed with things in our community.

    “I don’t think it was a bad thing. I think, more the media attention is what they were angry about.”
