An investigation has been launched into complaints of hate speech and discriminatory behavior at Medford's cable access station, according to Mayor Michael McGlynn.

In a letter sent to city councilors Wednesday, McGlynn said he had ordered police investigate the station after Medford resident Doreen Wade described incidents at the station during a city council meeting Tuesday night.

McGlynn said the investigation was opened yesterday and that he would inform the council of its results.

Last month, Wade accused Pittsfield's Mayor Dan Bianchi of using racist language in a conversation, according to the Pittsfield Gazette. Bianchi told the newspaper those claims were untrue.
