Best damn band in the land.

This is a good place to drop general and weird news, entertainment, and general show prep material that might be interesting to air talent or producers. Hot dog threads ALWAYS welcome.

Best damn band in the land.

Post by genlock » Thu Jul 24, 2014 5:21 pm

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Ohio State University has fired the director of its celebrated marching band amid allegations he knew about and ignored "serious cultural issues" including sexual harassment.

Jonathan Waters had led the band since 2012, and served in lesser capacities for a decade. His popular halftime shows drew millions of viewers on YouTube.

The Columbus Dispatch first reported his firing. Fledgling university President Michael Drake on Thursday released details of a two-month investigation found Waters knew about and failed to correct a "sexualized" culture where students were pressured to march in their underwear and earn sexually-explicit nicknames with performances.
"Everyone Should be aware that you're just a screen grab away from infamy."
