Radio hosts suspended for one week

Steve Harper and Leanna Karlson of Farmingdale's WKJY/98.3 will return to their morning show on Monday after a one-week suspension, the station's general manager, David Widmer, told Newsday's Frank Lovece. Management met with community organizations and others before deciding on the suspension's length. The radio personalities perpetuated a hoax last week involving a made-up homophobic parent. They and the station both apologized. Widmer also said Tuesday that the station learned of the hoax internally and went public immediately upon confirming it.
