I'm concerned about the future of the local TV program "Studio 10" due to some of the words its regular hosts have used recently. For example, during the edition of the program broadcast on Friday, October 11th, Joe Emer used the phrase "the boys" as a synonym for testicles while jokingly saying the program would have a segment about jockstraps "to keep the boys from dancing" after his fellow host Cherish Lombard presented a segment about the sizes of brassieres in which she and her guest used the phrase "the girls" as a synonym for breasts more than once. There were also some times during previous editions of the program in which the hosts used the word "booty" as a synonym for buttocks (the word "booty" originally meant valuable objects taken or stolen by force).
I wish the hosts would maintain their professionalism and keep their language pleasant for the sake of the program, their personal and professional reputations, their employer's (WALA-TV) reputation, local television in general, and pleasant language in general.
