ATLANTA - Monday, local and syndicated radio hostRob Redding offered a week of free advertising to Chick-fil-A on his radio show in the wake of the ongoing controversy over comments from company president Dan Cathy.

"Chick-fil-A President Dan Cathy is entitled to his opinion," Redding said in a Monday morning statement. "All Christians need to stand up for what they believe."
