How to get fired from your talk radio job REALLY quick-like

June 7, 2008

Mark Madden, host of ESPN 1250 radio show in Pittsburgh on the news that Mass. Senator Ted Kennedy had a potentially fatal brain tumor.

“I’m very disappointed to hear Sen. Ted Kennedy of Massachusetts is near death because of a brain tumor. I always hoped Sen. Kennedy would live long enough to be assassinated.”

Madden, unsurprisingly, was “permanently removed from the air” 5 days after his on-air comment.
