BEASLEY Talk WQAM-A/MIAMI's SID ROSENBERG is in hot water, reports JOSE LAMBIET on his GOSSIP EXTRA website. LAMBIET writes, "ROSENBERG, who landed in SOUTH FLORIDA after getting fired twice from the DON IMUS show for making insensitive remarks, is serving a six-week suspension without pay."
Why the suspension? LAMBIET continues, "ROSENBERG, who's also the sports anchor for NEW YORK CITY's all news radio station 1010 WINS, allegedly attempted what radio biz folks call 'plugola,' three sources tell GOSSIP EXTRA."
"The good thing is that we caught it before he did any damage," an official at WQAM told LAMBIET. "SID made an agreement to plug a sport-betting website he owed money to. My understanding is that he had a $100,000-plus in losses with the site. SID received a fax at the station spelling out their private agreement, and SID forgot it in the fax machine. Someone found it and brought it to our attention."
