Kevin Kiley Exits 92.3 The Fan Cleveland Claiming Censorship
Morning host Kevin Kiley is out at CBS Sports “92.3 The Fan” WKRK Cleveland.
Kiley told WOIO-TV last night that he submitted his resignation in November effective at the end of this month, but was not on the air this morning with co-host Ken Carman. Kiley claimed he was being censored by CBS likely over his comments about women having no place in the NFL; comments that garnered national attention.
And I have no right to accept censorship. I’ve never been censored. In 35 years, I’ve never been censored, and I shouldn’t have been censored for this. And I have no right to accept censorship based on what broadcasting is. And nor should you accept censorship, ever. You should make sure that the people on the radio are telling you the truth as they see it. Now, you’re gonna argue with them and you can disagree with them, but don’t let the program director there, don’t let the general manager, don’t let some clown in New York tell them what to say, and then you think it’s their opinion, or what not to say. That’s what happened here, and I’m not accepting it. So, demand the truth. We’ll see how they feel about the truth, trust me, if I’m on the air tomorrow morning.
Kiley joined WKRK when it flipped to Sports in 2011. He previously has worked at Sports stations such as WTEM Washington, KRLD-FM Dallas, WQAM Miami, and was the first afternoon host at Fox Sports Radio.
