James Posted November 30, 2008 Share Posted November 30, 2008 TalkSport presenter Jon Gaunt has been fired by the radio station for calling a London councillor a "Nazi". A TalkSport spokesman confirmed that Gaunt was dismissed yesterday following an internal investigation by the UTV-owned station about remarks he made on November 7 to Redbridge councillor Michael Stark in a discussion about a local authority plan to ban smokers from fostering children. Gaunt had originally been suspended by the station pending the investigation. His dismissal also comes in spite of the fact that he later issued an on-air apology and clarified his comment, saying he meant to say "health Nazi". http://www.guardian.co.uk/media/2008/nov/18/utv-commercialradio Studiio - All-In-One Radio Communication Platform SMS | Phone Calls | Social Media | Content Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
