Longtime KTRS sportscaster John Hadley has been fired because he gave political commentary on the air this week that angered station management, sources said.
KTRS General Manager Mark Dorsey could not be reached for comment, but a source said that Hadley veering from sports into politics was the “final straw” of his tenure at the station — at which he started in 2000 and has filled a variety of slots and roles, including being the station’s sports director.
“There was an incident that came up and there were some people there that were not happy with that,’’ Hadley, 54, said Thursday. “I was not going to change my tune or apologize. So we no longer are together. I’m no longer working at KTRS.
