From TFA:

This morning, 790 The Zone's Mayhem in the AM did a bit where hosts Steak Shapiro and Chris Dimino interviewed "Steve Gleason," played by co-host Nick Cellini


Any station that has someone on who goes by the name "Steak" should immediately have its license revoked.

If that station wasn't going down the shiatter, I'd apply to be one of the new hosts...

FTFM.

Good.  Chris Dimino can suck it.

He owned part of the station until 2010, I believe. He sold his  stake for cash and made himself expendable.

From the comments: Ugh. This country is all about who can be the most PC. For instance, Gleason is now over 70% PC

These guys should come perform their little skit as the halftime show of the Saints' season opener against the Falcons.
 
2013-06-17 08:20:59 PM
Ok, I've been drinking since I woke up and read that as "MLS sufferer" and thought to myself... aren't all soccer fans really suffering on the inside and deserve to be mocked?

Gleason would block it.

All sports talk radio needs to be fired.
 
2013-06-17 08:57:50 PM
What if Gleason heard the bit and liked it? You don't play that much football and not hear some seriously dark humor in the locker room.
 
2013-06-17 09:03:09 PM
This is the kind of shiat Your Average Witty Fark User would say, and find funny too. I'm not surprised in the least.

Just come right out and say you thought it was funny.

'Mayhem in the AM'

THERE'S your problem right there.

Shock-jockery
 
2013-06-17 09:25:48 PM
This entire station has pretty much been crap for years.  It has a very weak AM signal that does not even reach the perimeter, and the talent to match.  I have been truly embarrassed that my team ever decided to be associated with them.

These 3 will someday , without doubt become acquainted with the phrase " Karma is a biatch"
 
2013-06-17 09:28:50 PM
Steak Shapiro still had a job? News to me. I heard about 10 minutes of him years ago and never tuned back into that station.
 
2013-06-17 09:36:49 PM
Shapiro sucks.  Good riddance.

He grates worse than Hannity.
 
2013-06-17 09:37:27 PM
Shame. Aussie shock jocks get awards for worse
 
2013-06-17 09:44:00 PM
The obvious question, of course, is "to what station were they transferred?" Sure, they were "terminated", but the tendency is to just get a job at another station, in a different geographic area, and continue on as before.

Am I the only one getting sick of the Politics trolls bleeding into our tab?

Hosts don't get fired.  They get infected.

/we can only hope
 
2013-06-17 09:59:38 PM
How could this even happen in a society as developed as our? It's a travesty that there are people in this country who have to listen to AM radio for any reason.

Opie and Anthony scream, "Shiat! That should've been us that had been fired for doing this bit!"

I am deeply ashamed and will retreat to my spelling hovel and flog myself with my grammar cat o' nine tails once for every post in this thread.

1. The station absolutely did the right thing in firing them
2. I hope they have new keyboards in hell
