MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - A Minneapolis radio station says it will air public service announcements on HIV/AIDS after a pair of talk hosts accused Magic Johnson of faking AIDS.
KTLK's Chris Baker and Langdon Perry made the remarks during Baker's conservative talk show on Wednesday. After Johnson condemned the statements, the station said Friday it regretted ``some off-hand remarks'' by the pair.
The exchange came up after a caller complained about demands on workers.
Perry responded by asking about treatable diseases that a person can live with for a long time ``if you just get some basic drugs.''
Baker responded, ``Like Magic Johnson?''
Perry replied, ``Like Magic with his faked AIDS. Magic faked AIDS.''
