CNN’s Don Lemon said of Kappell’s spoonerism: “We all make mistakes.”
TODAY Show stars Al Roker and Craig Melvin, both African Americans, said that all broadcasters mangle words on the air and the Kappell case was overblown.
Rochester Mayor Lovely Warren

Rochester Mayor Lovely Warren demanded Jeremy Kappell’s firing without ever speaking to him or communicating with him in any capacity. Mayor Warren understands forgiveness as she is married to a man who drove the getaway car in a jewelry store robbery 20 years ago. She also defended a Rochester council member accused of embezzling tens of thousands of dollars, imploring the public to avoid judging the councilman without knowing all of the facts.

WHEC-TV general manager Richard “Dick” Reingold

WHEC-TV station manager Dick Reingold, a gutless weasel who doesn’t stand up for employees who speak live on air without a script. A manager of live broadcasters has a primary job to defend his on air talent. Dick is likely fearful of losing political advertising dollars or chopped Kappell because he was the highest paid weather department employee. WHEC-TV advertising and ratings are reportedly down since the Kappell firing.
