WILL COX COMMUNICATIONS PAY FOR MIAMI TALK SHOW HOST
Published November 21, 1995
Phil Hendrie, talk host on show Miami's WIOD-radio, has "been doing lame impersonations" of Dolphins LB Bryan Cox for more than a year, according to Brian Schmitz of the ORLANDO SENTINEL. But a recent impersonation had Hendrie-as-Cox admitting over the air that he was gay, "touching off taunts" by schoolmates aimed at Cox's 12-year old daughter. In response, Cox said he will file a $15M lawsuit against the station forcing them to stop the impersonations. Cox: "If people want to criticize me, that's fine. But when it starts to affect my family ... that's when I go to war." WIOD is the Dolphins' flagship and is owned by Cox (no relation) Communications. Bryan Cox's attorney, Mike Baird: "By the time we're done with them it would be fitting if we could turn 'Cox' in Cox Communications into Bryan Cox Communications" (ORLANDO SENTINEL, 11/21).
