KNBR Cuts Patrick Connor Following Barstool Radio Comments About Teenage Olympian
Cumulus Sports 680 KNBR San Francisco has cut ties with host Patrick Connor following comments he made on the Barstool Radio Show he made about 17 year old Olympic Gold Medalist Chloe Kim.
On Tuesday’s “Dialed-In with Dallas Braden” that Connor co-hosts with former Oakland A’s pitcher Dallas Braden and comedian Brody Stevens, Connor aka PCon, described the teenage Olympian as “a little hot piece of ass”. The comment was made on the second day of the show, heard from 2-4pm eastern on Barstool Sports’ SirusXM Channel 85. After Deadspin.com posted the audio, Connor first made a snide comment about the site before issuing an apology.
Deadspin still exists? https://t.co/yXLc90HKdT

Yesterday in a weird attempt to make people laugh I failed. My comments about @chloekimsnow were more than inappropriate they were lame & gross. Im truly sorry Chloe. You’ve repped our country so brilliantly. I apologize to my colleagues & the listeners for being a total idiot.
