The NBC show, ‘This is Us’, hit fans with an unexpected twist in this week’s episode with the use of the N-word without censorship. Matt McGill, former morning personality of WVON and media consultant joined Bill and Wendy this morning to talk about the episode and explained why the N-word conversation needs to happen across all platforms, not just in hushed conversation. Do you think NBC push the envelope a little bit too far? You be the judge.
