WHJY Drops Controversial Ads

An amusing tale in radioland. The ProJo has the story:

Shades of Bill Clinton, Tiger Woods, Elliot Spitzer and Mark Sanford: What might be called an affair affair has arisen in Rhode Island radio-land.

WHJY has dropped commercials from a Web site known as AshleyMadison.com, which bills itself as a provider of a service that would never have been public while Queen Victoria was on the throne. Described on its Web site as “the world’s most discreet dating service,” it helps the unhappily married find a fling on the side.

The Web site claims to have nearly five million members and to have six million visits a month. Its commercials employ steamy lyrics and dreamy music, and define infidelity as “exciting.” One asks, “Trapped in a sexless marriage, or just want to mix up your play list? Join AshleyMadison.com. It’s way better than an intern.”
