I HATE WVU MORE EVERY DAY
Boy, I can’t let this go. Can you blame me with this story? A double-dip stupid fans + stupid radio executive = Mr. Sunshine heart attack!!!
Finally, someone told Mountaineer fans to lighten up….it’s a god damn football team! It’s always a solid radio gag to bust the balls of your listeners. Unless the listeners are psychos backed by gutless radio execs.
A Charleston radio personality was suspended from his job for refusing to tone down his on-air excitement over former WVU head football coach Rich Rodriguez’s decision to take the head job at the University of Michigan.
Coach Kidd, a Michigan native, co-hosts the morning talk show on Electric 102.7 FM. For the past couple days, he’s dominated the show’s content with his feelings on how Rodriguez’s job change will be a boon to the Wolverines football program — much to the dismay of listeners.
After playing the Wolverines’ fight song for a fourth time this morning, Coach Kidd was yanked off the air.
“Basically, it boils down to insubordination,” said Wade Hill, the station’s program manager. “He was just taking it a little too far.”
Hill said the decision to suspend Coach Kidd came from upper-level management about 7:40 a.m. today. Hill said he’s been trying to work something out with the station’s administrators to see if he can get Coach Kidd back on the air.
Please call or write management at this station and tell them to quit!!!! It’s Bristol Broadcasting. Programming contact is firstname.lastname@example.org or call 304-744-7020
Listeners have been complaining that Coach Kidd’s extravagant support of Rodriguez’s controversial decision is disrespectful to the state.
Considering the fragile emotions in the state this week, Hill said Coach Kidd was warned three times to change the subject away from his glee over Rodriguez’s move.
It’s a FOOTBALL TEAM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Disrespectful to the state? Huh? Pacman Jones and Chris Henry sticking around on campus wasn’t disrespectful?Explore posts in the same categories: College Football, Sports Radio
