“Dating Naked” taken off the air; Parents Television Council responds tomorrow on FOT

Parents Television Council
The Parents Television Council (PTC) reacted with approval to the decision by the television network VH1 to cancel the reality dating show “Dating Naked.” On the program strangers go on blind dates completely nude. The network rated the program as being appropriate for children.

Tuesday PTC program director Melissa Henson will be joining Deacon Mike Manno and Gina Noll to discuss the dating program as well as other television programming that is not suitable for children and should be taken off the air such as the FOX program “The Mick” and others.  The mission of PTC is to protect children and families from graphic sex, violence and profanity in the media, because of their proven long-term harmful effects, and Melissa will also discuss their campaigns to clean up the broadcasting media including holding advertisers accountable.
We will also be in the midst of four Spring Care-A-Thon. Iowa Catholic Radio is largely listener supported and any tax-free pledge you can make this week will be greatly appreciated. Just click on the Care-A-Thon link to be taken to the page where you can make a secure pledge.
