Radio host Scott Torgerson is no longer employed by 97.1 The Fan in Columbus Ohio, the company announced on its Twitter account today.
Torgerson, the co-host of “The Common Man & The Torg” show was initially suspended on October 17 after he tweeted that he wished ESPN Gameday's Desmond Howard would “get fired or die” so he could watch Gameday again.
The Torg apologized via the Columbus Dispatch after his offensive tweet was roundly criticized by anyone with a microphone.
As the wise J. Camm points out, this is why you always go the “wish he’d never been born” route. Same message, but much less fire-worthy.
