I guess if the "other" Peterson, the one on death row for killing his wife and unborn child, gets love letters from women all over the country, I shouldn't be surprised at this, but come on...can you say "death wish"?
CHICAGO - It looks like Chicago-area women won't be able to compete for a date with Drew Peterson after all.
Drew Peterson's lawyer Joel Brodsky said Peterson appeared on WJMK-FM with longtime Chicago radio personality Steve Dahl on Wednesday and agreed to come back Thursday to play "Win a Date with Drew Peterson."
But WJMK-FM general manager Peter Bowen said the station never intended to have such a game. And he said Peterson and his attorney approached the station -- not the other way around.
Peterson's attorney has claimed the contest was the brainchild of longtime Chicago radio host Steve Dahl.
On the air, it seemed Dahl threw the idea out there, and Peterson said to "ask the lawyer."
Bowen said Dahl would never, in his words, "put his listeners in harm's way."
Granted, nothing in the article says there were women ready to "play", but these radio personalities know their audience and I can't believe they'd have considered something that wouldn't have gotten some brisk response.
