What can happen when you don't verify a caller

shane_spencer_200Station management at Sport ESPN Radio 104.5 The Team in Albany, NY say they are investigating who might have perpetrated a hoax on host Mike Lindsley.

The station allowed a caller who claimed to be ex New York Yankee Shane Spencer (pictured) on the air, who then claimed he took steroids. The caller was not Spencer and the entire half hour conversation was a lie. Spencer heard about the interview and sent a statement saying he never took part in any call with Lindsley.

Spencer said, "I am hearing about this interview from friends, family, former teammates, and fans. It is very disappointing that someone was able to go on the air as me and speak for me about these topics. I would like to set the record straight that the interview was not done with me and all the opinions were not mine.''

ESPN Albany PD Stephen Giuttari was quoted in reports saying, "We just want to do the right thing by Shane Spencer.''

So they should.
