Neil Rogers is Toast. Fuck the FCC. Fuck Beasley Broadcasting.
Bell, the station's general manager, had fired Rogers' producer and fill-in host, Jorge Rodriguez, the week before. Callers were angry. Beasley Broadcasting, which owns the station, had sent in a lawyer, Joyce Fitch, to investigate.
Henceforth the 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. slot will be filled by sports talk. We definitely need more of that. Rogers will "consult," according to a press release.
Funny thing is, Rogers -- a South Florida icon for as long as I can remember -- lives in Toronto. He has done his show from his living room in the frosty north for quite a while.
Neil, we salute you. Fuck the FCC. Fuck Beasley. Fuck Bell.
