INDICE DE GALERIAS
ATLANTA (AP) — A station official says the cast of an Atlanta sports radio show has been fired after mocking a former NFL player who has Lou Gehrig’s disease.
The show, Mayhem in the AM, was broadcast Monday morning on 790 The Zone. In a statement, General Manager Rick Mack says the station regrets comments made about ex-New Orleans Saints safety Steve Gleason.
The 36-year-old suffers from amyotrophic lateral sclerosis. ALS patients lose the ability to speak and move, which has happened to Gleason.
The station lists the hosts at Nick Cellini, Steak Shapiro and Chris Dimino. But Mack didn’t give the names of those fired.
Cellini took to Twitter to apologize, calling it a stupid attempt at humor. Listeners on the station’s Facebook page called for the hosts’ termination.
Gleason played for the Saints between 2000 and 2006.
