Dan Sileo Lasts One Week At KGME Phoenix
The Athletic reported last week that the NHL’s Arizona Coyotes, who signed a deal to move their games to KGME for the upcoming season, were not happy with the hiring of Sileo based on comments that led him to be fired from three Florida stations in 2012 and 2013.
The Coyotes released the following statement to The Athletic regarding Sileo:
When we became aware that Fox Sports 910 had hired Dan Sileo, we immediately reached out to the station’s management to express our deep concern regarding Mr. Sileo’s abhorrent comments. Our promotion of inclusivity is deeply rooted into the fabric of who we are as an organization and we have no tolerance for racism, sexism, anti-Semitism or any other discriminatory behavior.
While KGME’s website has Fox Sports Radio’s “The Odd Couple w/ Chris Broussard & Rob Parker” listed in Sileo’s 4-7pm timeslot, the station aired a replay of Jody Oehler’s morning show on Monday.
