WBKO Apologizes for Boob Tube Flap

WBKO Bowling Green has issued a letter of apology stemming from the clip of longtime weatherman Chris Allen doing "juvenile and unprofessional" things to a graphic of a woman’s breast on the set. 

"The tape is embarrassing, offensive, and certainly does not represent the Hometown values WBKO is known for," reads part of the letter. 

V.P./G.M. Rick McCue spends much of the letter saying what a swell guy Allen is. Just this past weekend, in fact, the weatherman worked on a hospital telethon to raise money for sick kids. 

McCue says to give Allen a break. Will viewers?
