here second link, of course in Hochdeutsch.

I think the problem is:

She is the first radio moderator who speaks in Zurich in High German. That makes some people very agressive, I am convinced.

However: She could come home to Germany where she is now popular because a lot of German radio stations feel with her.
Thanks for the link.
I have been living in Germany for a long time. I have heard of such cases in Germany too. I think the Swiss are very conservative on their views and they like things to stay that way. I am sure she can continue her career in Germany. I wonder if it is only the way she speaks German or let's say it is the way she addresses her Swiss audiences. Maybe they got offended by her jokes? I am just guessing here. I wish I could listen her radio programme.
There was this German lady on a German radio channel and she made jokes about foreigners but after a while some of the jokes she did were not jokes anymore but insults. So she got kicked out of her job. Some people thought she was a nice lady but obviously her jokes did not come across as nice.
I guess you also heard about the German TV Moderator who made very awkward comments on a German TV show. She lost her job too. http://http://www.berlinonline.de/be...en/191344.html
