We reported earlier today that the hosts on Mayhem in the A.M on 790 The Zone made fun of former Saints safety Steve Gleason.
The radio station has announced that all three hosts have been suspended indefinitely. The station released the following statement.
“We deeply regret the comments made by Mayhem In The AM this morning on 790 The Zone regarding former New Orleans Saints player Steve Gleason. 790 The Zone, Lincoln Financial Media, our sponsors and partners in no way endorse or support the unfortunate and offensive commentary concerning Mr. Gleason this morning. The members of the show involved with this incident have been suspended indefinitely pending further management review of their actions.”
It won’t surprise me if they are fired. They should be. I don’t want people to lose their jobs. But making fun of someone who is dying from a horrible disease is way over the top.
Update: All three radio hosts have been fired.
