Matt Siegel, a fixture on Boston radio for 40 years as the host of the “Matty in the Morning” show on Kiss 108 FM, abruptly signed off Wednesday after being told to “stop talking” about pop star Demi Lovato’s announcement that they are non-binary.
According to distractify, Matty didn’t take too kindly to having his opinion stifled and didn’t like that he was being instructed to not discuss a certain topic. So he decided to up and leave Matty in the Morning, walking out right in the middle of it.
