Reaction to Lindsay Lohan Radio Offer

lohans2.jpg

We told you last week about JVC Broadcasting wanting actress Lindsay Lohan to host a nationally syndicated radio show with her mother Dina.

The show’s would be based in Ronkonkoma, New York at the Party 105 studios.

The Long Island broadcaster, led by President/CEO John Caracciolo, is offering the Lohans 1 million dollars to lead the morning show.

Since that post, several former JVC and TMO [previous company name] employees got in touch with FishbowlNY regarding the possible Lohans hire.

“They already attempted this with Amy Fisher,” one former staffer says. “Interesting that when Long Island ladies go bad, TMO/JVC is there to put them on the air!”

Fisher was dubbed the “Long Island Lolita” for her tryst with mechanic Joey Buttafuoco. In 1992, you’ll recall, there was a media firestorm after she shot and severely wounded Buttafuoco’s wife Mary Jo.

After Fisher’s jail time, JVC management signed her to write columns for their Long Island Press and co-host a short-lived morning show in 2003.

As for Lohan, she is attempting to resurrect her career and her life. The Merrick, N.Y., native has had various personal issues in recent months, including DUI convictions and rehabilitation stints.

Messages left with Caracciolo were not returned.
