Producer Out After Ticket/San Antonio Iverson Bit Furor
May 1, 2007 at 5:47 AM (PT)
ALL ACCESS hears that the CLEAR CHANNEL Sports KTKR-A (760 THE TICKET)/SAN ANTONIO controversy about a bit parodying DENVER NUGGETS star ALLEN IVERSON has resulted in a producer's dismissal.
Afternoon show Exec. Producer ERIC GRAY has left the building in the wake of the furor over the fake phone interview segment that aired on JEFF VEXLER and WALTER PASACRITA's show APRIL 25. The bit led to the SAN ANTONIO SPURS pulling coach GREGG POPOVICH's weekly show off the station in protest.
Other staffers will absorb GRAY's duties for now.
