KNBR Drops Patrick Connor Following Barstool Commentary

Patrick Connor’s time at KNBR has expired. “PCon” as he was known to San Francisco radio listeners has been let go after making uncomfortable comments about Olympian Chloe Kim.

During an on-air exchange on Barstool Radio’s “Dialed-In with Dallas Braden” Connor said, “She’s fine as hell! If she was 18, you wouldn’t be ashamed to say that she’s a little hot piece of ass. And she is. She is adorable. I’m a huge Chloe Kim fan.”

Connor did apologize via Twitter on Wednesday morning. His tweet said, “Yesterday in a weird attempt to make people laugh I failed. My comments about @chloekimsnow were more than inappropriate they were lame & gross. I’m truly sorry Chloe. You’ve repped our country so brilliantly. I apologize to my colleagues & the listeners for being a total idiot.”

KNBR Program Director Jeremiah Crowe confirmed Connor’s exit adding that he’s no longer a member of Cumulus Media.

Barstool has not tossed Connor out the door yet. Braden did address the situation on today’s program and stated that he didn’t want his show living in the gutter and would not accept it going forward. He put Connor on notice that he needs to clean it up or he won’t be back. To hear the audio click here.
