More 'inappropriate comedy sound bytes'

Posted at August 10, 2005 3:38 PM

In a move reminiscent of the Hot 97 tsunami song fiasco, he San Francisco Giants' flagship radio station fired talk-show host Larry Krueger and two station officials Tuesday night.

If you haven't heard the story, Larry Krueger made racial remarks toward the club and manager Felipe Alou, stating that San Francisco has too many "brain-dead Caribbean hitters hacking at slop nightly", and Alou's "mind has turned to Cream of Wheat."

Alou resigned from his regular radio show with the station, but stated that he did not wish for Krueger to be fired saying he does not wish any man lose his job.

Tony Salvadore, KNBR's vice president and general manager originally said Krueger would not be fired, and most of the hosts and callers to KNBR in recent days supported Krueger, saying some of his remarks were made in the heat of excitement.

But it seems Salvadore changed his mind after Alou's recent interview with ESPN in which he roundly criticized KNBR and Krueger. Salvadore announced the firings of Krueger, program manager Bob Agnew and KNBR Morning Show producer Tony Rhein, six days after the remarks were made.

This time, Todd Lynn can't blame jsmooth!
