SACRAMENTO-

One day after a Sacramento radio host asked listeners to post negative ads about the Muslim Prophet Muhammad online, listeners tuned in and found he and his co-host are on vacation.

“The Armstrong and Getty Show” was not live Tuesday morning, and was instead a “best of” replay.

During their live show Monday morning, Jack Armstrong said, “Some of you people that are good with the computer–make an anti-Mohammed ad post it to Al Jazeera. We need to swamp them with ads until they grow up.”

The comment frustrated Muslims in the Sacramento area.

FOX40 contacted Clear Channel, the parent company of KSTE that airs Armstrong and Getty and were told there was a last-minute memo Monday night announcing the co-hosts were on vacation. The station says the pair’s vacation has nothing to do with what was said on the air Monday morning.

At this time, there is no indication that Tuesday’s vacation is a result of Jack Armstrong’s comments during their Monday show.

FOX40 contacted the two hosts Tuesday. Both declined to comment.
