Morning sports talk radio host Kevin Kiley is apparently out at 92.3 The Fan WKRK-FM.
Kiley was not on the air Friday morning for his show “Kiley and Carman” hours after announcing his resignation on TV that he said was “effective at the end of the month.”
“My principles, their principles of doing business don’t match,” Kiley said during an appearance on WOIO Channel 19’s Sports Extra. “It was tough for me to work there.”
The outspoken Kiley sparked controversy last month when called the Buffalo Bills hiring of a female assistant coach “absurd.” Those comments in addition to previous statements that women shouldn’t be allowed to vote for the Pro Football Hall of Fame or work as an NFL official drew negative attention for Kiley and 92.3 The Fan. Mike Florio at Pro Football Talk called for a boycott of the station.
But Kiley said he actually submitted a letter of resignation in November “for reasons that were unrelated to this,” but it wasn’t supposed to go into effect until the end of February.
So, why say something now?
“In 35 years I’ve never been censored and I shouldn’t have been censored for this,” Kiley told Channel 19 sports anchor Tony Zarella.
